Little America, created by Lee Eisdenberg (The Office), comedian Kumail Nanjiani, and his wife, writer and producer Emily V. Gordon, is an anthology series which will be comprised of 16 episodes upon the release of Season 2. Based on the true stories collection “Little America” featured in Epic Magazine, each episode of the series focuses on the experience of a different individual, each of whom is an immigrant to the United States of America. The content of the stories ranges from light and even comical to heavy and emotional. No matter the content, audiences found the first season relatable and moving, and people have been awaiting Season 2 ever since!
Season 1 follows immigrants from many different places. The characters, all based on real people, include a Nigerian man who moved to Oklahoma to pursue a degree in economics and the daughter of a HIspanic maid who joins a squash club in order to earn new shoes, only to find herself excelling and becoming a member of the United States’ national team. Each episode ends with a caption under a photo of the real-life subject, informing us what the person is up to now.
We do not know exactly what subjects will be covered in Little America Season 2, but we will see immigrants from places like Sri Lanka, Somalia, Korea, Japan, and El Salvador. Just like season 1, we’re hoping for some refreshing and relatable tales of immigrants and how they fit into America. The USA has been a land of the immigrants and for all good reason, however, not everyone is accepting of it, and most people don’t understand the struggles immigrants go through. Little American Season 2 will hopefully highlight these struggles with a mix of love, family, friendship, and much more. We’ll be sure to keep you updated once more information is available about the new episodes!
As mentioned above, not much is known about the plots of the upcoming episodes, and unfortunately, a full cast list is not available, either. Just like Season 1, each episode will feature a new cast. While we don’t know everyone who will appear in Little America Season 2, we know that Phylicia Rashad, Alan Sun Kim, and Ki Hong Lee are confirmed.
Actress Phylicia Rashad’s illustrious career includes credits on television, film, and stage. Her career began on Broadway, her earlier credits include the role of Deena Jones in the musical Dreamgirls. In 2004, she became the first Black actress to win the Tony Award for Best Actress in a Play, which she received for her role in the revival of A Raisin in the Sun. She is best known for her role as Clair Huxtable, a lawyer, wife, and mom, on the 80s sitcom The Cosby Show.
Alan Sun Kim is an American child actor from Chicago, Illinois. He is 10 years old and speaks Korean and English. He made his debut in the 2020 drama film Minari, for which he won the 2021 Critics’ Choice Award for Best Young Performer and was nominated for a BAFTA Award for Best Actor in a Supporting Role. Most recently, he was cast in John Krasinski’s IF.
Korean-American actor Ki Hong Lee studied psychology at the University of California, Berkeley, before beginning his professional acting career. His first role was uncredited in the 2010 film The Social Network, but he has gone on to appear in all three installments of the Maze Runner film franchise. He has appeared on popular television shows such as Modern Family, New Girl, and Netflix’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.
It will be interesting to see all these cast members in different episodes of Little America Season 2. One of the reasons fans really loved this show was obviously because of the concept but also how the concept gave room to a more diverse cast, which was appreciated by audiences all over the globe.
Little America originally premiered on January 17, 2020. Although it was renewed for a second season in December 2019, before the series even premiered, the COVID-19 pandemic delayed filming for quite some time, much like it did for several other shows and movies. Little America Season 2 will be available to stream beginning December 9, 2022, on Apple TV+.
The trailer for Little America Season 2 was released on November 14, 2022, but has only been viewed 9,000 times so far on YouTube, but we’re hoping that increases in the coming days because this series truly does deserve more love than it has received so far.
The trailer opens with a young woman being asked for her name and where she’s really from before having her name butchered on live television. It looks like Little America Season 2 will be full of its usual ups and downs while remaining relatable to a broad audience.
The United States of America is known for being a so-called melting pot of cultures, and yet, many Americans are aware of neither the trials and tribulations that immigrants face, nor their dreams and motivations behind risking so much to uproot their entire lives. Little America provides some insight by telling real stories from real people, helping people born in America to sympathize with those who come to America from other places. The series celebrates the immigrant experience, and we can’t wait to see what’s in store this season.
