Hulu has announced season 2 of their hit original series, “Wu-Tang: An American Saga,” will premiere on September 8.
Based on one of the most influential and important groups in hip-hop history, “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.
According to Deadline, season 2 picks up six months after the close of Season 1, with the Wu-Tang Clan having to overcome even more obstacles, odds, and past beefs as they come together to create the iconic album, Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers).
Along the way, introducing more members of the Wu Clan.
The new season of “Wu-Tang: An American Saga” will welcome new cast members including Curtiss Cook Jr., who will play Mathematics.
Based on the real life of Ronald Maurice Bean, AKA Mathematics, hip hop producer & DJ for the clan, as well as the artist behind the famous Wu-Tang logo.
Gbenga Akinnagbe also joins the cast to portray Mook (John “Mook” Gibbons), the first head manager of the Wu-Tang Clan.
Retired from the streets, Mook now works as a bus driver to take care of his family.
A wise, practical, and dependable man who can think and act under pressure, his former life has left him with a skill set that makes him an unusual but potent problem solver.
