Run the World S2

Run the World follows a group of successful Black women living in the Upper Manhattan district of Harlem.

The second and final season picks up with Whitney (Black Reel nominee Amber Stevens West from 22 Jump Street) anxiously awaiting the fate of her relationship, while Sondi (Corbin Reid from Blair Witch and How to Get Away with Murder) and Renee (Bresha Webb from Night School) are reminded that it’s never a bad time to choose yourself.

Season 1 scored a rare 100% critics’ rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and won three Women’s Image Network Awards – for Outstanding Comedy Series; Outstanding Actress (Webb); and Outstanding Show Written by a Woman for series creator Leigh Davenport. At the Black Reel Awards, Run the World was nominated for Outstanding Comedy Series and Outstanding Actress (Webb), with Erika Alexander winning Outstanding Guest Actress.

The Hollywood Reporter says it’s “giddy, gossipy and gladdening… exactly the feeling you’d want while catching up with an old friend over cocktails.”
