Starz announced today that Run the World will return audiences to the vibrant world of Harlem, as seen through the lives of three 30-something best friends, on Friday, May 26.
In addition, several first look images were released hinting at what’s to come for season two, with a focus on the bonds of friendship and power of Black sisterhood as the ladies fashionably navigate through the ups and downs of love and careers in their pursuit of world domination.
The second season of the half-hour comedy series 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.
Amber Stevens West (The Carmichael Show), Bresha Webb (Marlon) and Corbin Reid (Valor) return to their roles as Whitney, Renee, and Sondi, three best friends living and thriving in Harlem.

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.
Whether they reunite with a past love, taste the life of a millionaire, or see their career take off in a radical new direction, these powerful Black women, fortified by their impenetrable friendship, won’t let anything get in their way.
