Dami Elebe unveiled as head writer for Flawsome Season 2
Award-winning Nigerian screenwriter Dami Elebe is the head writer for the highly anticipated second season of Showmax’s popular series Flawsome.
Known for her exceptional storytelling as seen in the TV series including Skinny Girl In Transit, The Men’s Club, Rumor Has It, and Far From Home, Elebe’s announcement as head writer for the Showmax Original gives fans of the series even more to look forward to in the upcoming season.
Elebe’s uncanny ability to breathe life into characters and craft captivating stories has made her a household name in the Nigerian entertainment scene and among lovers of Nollywood. She’s expected to bring this skill to the new season of the show, which has garnered a loyal fan base since it made its debut in 2022.
The first season of Flawsome made waves, drawing in audiences with its relatable characters and their journeys through life’s twists and turns. Centered around four friends portrayed by Bisola Aiyeola, Ini Dima-Okojie, Sharon Ooja, and Enado Odigie, the 13-part series delved into the lives of diverse characters navigating life’s challenges and triumphs, revealing the strong bonds that hold them together despite their flaws.
At the 2023 Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards (AMVCAs), the drama series received five nominations in four categories: Best Actress in a Drama (Enado Odigie and Ini Dima-Okojie), Best TV Series (Tola Odunsi & Akin Akinkugbe), Best Lighting Designer (Segun Adeleke) and Best Cinematography (Idowu Adedapo aka Mr. Views).
From all indications, Season 2 promises to be an even more riveting rollercoaster ride as Dami Elebe weaves her narrative magic. Will these four ladies succumb to the patriarchal edicts of the society they live in, or keep pushing back? Could it be that Ifeyinwa will no longer try to fit into her dead father’s image? Will Madam Rose finally be exposed for her prostitution ring, and will Ramat ever stop covering for her husband’s excesses? Some of these questions are begging to be answered in the upcoming season. While we can’t say for sure how it’s all going to play out, one thing is certain: with Dami Elebe’s proven track record of capturing the nuances of human relationships and societal intricacies, viewers can expect a season brimming with unexpected twists, compelling arcs, and moments that will have them on the edge of their seats.
As the countdown to the second season commences, viewers can refresh their memories by binge-watching the first season of the show on Showmax.
