Run the World Season 2 will premiere at midnight (ET) on the Starz app, all Starz streaming and on-demand platforms. On linear, it will debut on Starz at 9:30PM ET/PT in the U.S. and Canada.
Run the World chronicles the euphoric highs and heartbreaking lows that Whitney, Renee and Sondi must endure in their pursuit of world domination.
Whitney must follow the road of self-discovery in order to thrive in her life with or without Ola, while Renee and Sondi must decide what they truly want out of life – both in love and their careers.
