BETThe BET shows American Soul — inspired by the iconic series Soul Train — and Boomerang — based on the 1992 Eddie Murphy movie — are both coming back for a second season.
“BET Networks is so proud to be the television home for the compelling scripted series Boomerang and American Soul,” BET President Scott Mills says in a statement. “Our continued partnership demonstrates BET’s commitment to the elevation of creative and authentic storytelling that viewers expect from the brand.”
Boomerang, executive-produced by Lena Waithe and Halle Berry, the latter of who starred in the original film, tonight at 10 p.m. ET/PT
“I’m so proud of these young actors and the heart, depth and modern reality that they bring to this series,” Berry says of the show’s cast. “They are truly ambassadors of our culture and their generation.”
“Making Boomerang has been one of the highlights of my career and the positive feedback we’ve gotten from fans and critics has been so validating,” Waite adds. “I’m beyond excited to dive even deeper into these characters’ lives in season two.”
The season finale of American Soul airs at 9 p.m. ET/PT tonight before Boomerang and features Gabrielle Dennis as Tina Turner.
“We are incredibly grateful to continue to tell the American Soul story, says executive producer Jesse Collins. “Season one was so well received by the culture and we feel that season two will be even more fun and exciting.”
