And it’s still Wu-Tang Forever!
Hulu has renewed its hit series, “Wu-Tang: An American Saga,” for a second season.
According to Deadline, the series allowed the streamer to tap into an African American market like never before. So, it was pretty much a no-brainer to renew the series.
“Wu-Tang: An American Saga” is inspired by “The Wu-Tang Manual” and “Tao of Wu”, and based on the true story of the Wu-Tang Clan.
Set in early ’90s New York at the height of the crack cocaine epidemic, the show tracks the Clan’s formation, a vision of Bobby Diggs aka The RZA, who strives to unite a dozen young, black men that are torn between music and crime but eventually rise to become the unlikeliest of American success stories.
The cast includes Shameik Moore, Ashton Sanders Erika Alexander, Julian Elijah Martinez, Siddiq Sanderson, Marcus Callender, Zolee Griggs, Vinnie Pastore, Dave East, and Joey Bada$$.
RZA took to social media over the weekend writing:
Congrats to the Wu for being the first band to create a Hip Hop/music scripted series in history. Thanks to all the fans and people who made this possible. The saga continues…
