BET’s enjoying a wave of success with its new television programming, namely new series ‘American Soul’ and ‘Boomerang.’
While the former is a blast from the past in the form of loosely biographical look at the creation and heyday of legendary TV show ‘Soul Train’ and its host Don Cornelius, the latter is a modern-day twist on the iconic 1992 Eddie Murphy film of the same name. As both have led the network to favorable viewership figures with their respective inaugural runs, reports have it they’ve been renewed for second seasons.
“Making Boomerang has been one of the highlights of my career,” executive producer Lena Waithe said in a statement, “and the positive feedback we’ve gotten from fans and critics has been so validating. I’m beyond excited to dive even deeper into these characters’ lives in Season 2.”
While the announcement came shortly ahead of ‘Boomerang’s season 1 finale (April 9), ‘American Soul’s freshman finale aired April 2.
As of time reported their respective season 2 premiere dates have not been revealed.
