HBO has given the green light to Betty Season 2, it was announced today by Amy Gravitt, Executive Vice President, HBO Programming. The first season of the comedy series debuted on Friday, May 1 and concluded on Friday, June 5.
Season one is available to stream on HBO GO, HBO NOW, and on HBO via HBO MAX and other partners’ platforms.
“It’s been a joy to ride through the streets of NYC with the inspiring women of BETTY, and we’re grateful to them and to Crystal for sharing their stories and friendships with us,” said Gravitt. “We can’t wait to watch where our beloved Bettys go next.”
HBO’s six-episode half-hour series Betty is based on Crystal Moselle’s critically-acclaimed feature Skate Kitchen. Betty Season 2 is directed by Crystal Moselle, executive produced by Moselle, Igor Srubshchik, Jason Weinberg and Alliah Sophia Mourad, and produced by Untitled Entertainment.
Starring Dede Lovelace, Moonbear, Nina Moran, Ajani Russell, and Rachelle Vinberg, who all starred in the original film, Betty follows a diverse group of young women navigating their lives through the predominantly male-oriented world of skateboarding, set against the backdrop of New York City.
Opinionated and loyal, Janay (Lovelace) is strong willed and stubborn in ways that both help and hurt her. Honeybear (Moonbear) is a quiet storm. Her flagrant style is a ruse; an armor she wears to hide her emotional struggles.
Kirt (Moran) is a lover (to the ladies), a fighter (to the rest of the world), and a little kid in the body of a woman. She’s the funniest person alive, but even if she knew it, she wouldn’t care.
Meanwhile, Indigo (Russell) is a street-savvy hustler trapped in the body of a well-to-do art school drop-out. On the edge of the group is Camille (Vinberg), guarded, perceptive, intelligent and awkward. She wants to be down with the dudes in the skate park and has fought hard for the small space she’s carved out with them, but she needs to realize that cool points don’t actually add up to the sum of anything, especially in the eyes of the other girls.
Recurring cast include Reza Nader as Farouk, Edmund Donovan as Bambi, Caleb Eberhardt as Donald, Katerina Tannenbaum as Ash, Jules Lorenzo as Yvette and Brenn Lorenzo as Celia.
Betty is directed by Crystal Moselle, executive produced by Moselle, Lesley Arfin, Igor Srubshchik and Jason Weinberg, and produced by Arfy Material and Untitled Entertainment.
