Hulu released the trailer and premiere date for Wu-Tang: An American Saga season 2.
Check out the trailer above! Hulu got a breakthrough hit on their hands when they launched this original series, which functions as a semi-fictional origin story for legendary rap group Wu-Tang Clan. Season 1 of Wu-Tang: An American Saga was all about the civilian and/or criminal lives of various Clan members like RZA, Chef Raekwon, Ghostface Killah, and Method Man – and the conflicts between them – leading up to the moment that RZA had the idea to pull together a supergroup from the various boroughs of NYC.
When Wu-Tang: An American Saga ended, the Wu-Tang Clan’s music was just beginning to break through and get radio play – even as the real-life situations and beefs between the future Wu-Tang Clan members were reaching a boiling point.
The series launched in fall 2019 and was quickly renewed for season 2 by Hulu in January of 2020. Obviously, the COVID-19 pandemic slowed down the production and release schedule – but at the same time, the pandemic has only allowed Wu-Tang: An American Saga to gain more attention and acclaim within the hip-hop community, as fans late to the party dug in deep to season 1 of An American Saga during lockdowns, giving it a nice social media buzz-boost last year. If all goes well, that should translate to some nice rating when season 2 kicks off.
