The new trailer, which you can watch below, brings viewers right back to Oakland, CA where Ashley (Jones) is trying — with mixed results — to adjust to her “new normal,” raising her son Sean (Atticus Woodward) alone while Miles (Casal), her partner of 12 years and new husband, is serving time in San Quentin Prison.
The sophomore season maintains a lighthearted and fun tone while simultaneously tackling complex issues with a comedic and innovative twist, spotlighting the hilarious hijinks Ashley and family get into as she attempts to navigate the crazy chaos of her life in the Bay Area.
The Blindspotting series debuted to critical acclaim in 2021 and remains Certified Fresh at 100% on Rotten Tomatoes. Season two picks up nine months after Ashley and Miles’s prison nuptials in the season one finale, Ashley is doing backflips to try and raise Sean on her own.
She is reaching her breaking point and is taking it out on everyone around her. Miles is adjusting to life on the inside and counting down the days before their first family visitation weekend at San Quentin.
Rainey (Hunt) is doing her best to make Ashley and Sean feel at home while trying to find a way to stay connected to her son behind bars, but Ashley holds all the cards.
Trish’s (Jaylen Barron) new business is flourishing, but she is dealing with jealousy issues now that her best friend and business partner Jacque (April Absynth) is dating Cuddie (Lance Holloway).
Janelle (Candace Nicholas-Lippman) is growing frustrated with Ashley’s constant need for support and has begun to miss her life back in Bali.
And then of course Earl (Benjamin Turner), fresh out of prison himself for unintentionally breaking his probation, has moved out of Nancy’s (Margo Hall) house and is trying to re-establish a relationship with his own family, and his past. Welcome back to the ordeal.
