In All Things On Streaming Networks For Black History Month

Amazon Prime’s hit show Harlem has already begun in their second season. According to Shadow and Act, Tracy Oliver, the show’s creator, told the brand that the new season is “picking up” right where the show ended.

Fans of the show saw one of the main characters Camille (Meagan Good) kiss her ex-Ian (Tyler Lepley) the night before he was supposed to get married. Talk about a “better late than never” moment, right? The cliffhanger had people wanting to come back.

“We’re not time jumping, so we’re dealing with the immediate aftermath of the cliffhanger that everyone saw in season one and we’re just picking up with everybody’s careers and love stories and everything as we left it. I think the magic this season is about these women finding their own personal happiness and their own joy,” Oliver said.

When asked how her character has grown from S1, Good said,

“[Camille] felt like a lot of things were happening to her and I think in season two, she is taking more accountability.”

She added,

“She’s discovering who she’s not and who she thought she was.”

The “Eve’s Bayou” alum also directed episode two in the new season. During an interview earlier this month, Good talked about being in the captain’s seat,

“I have such a joy in directing that it doesn’t matter how sad I am, if I get to direct, I’m a happy girl, period,” she said.

Grace Byers, who plays the lovable Quinn, went past her hetero closet to embrace love with another woman only to get rejected. However, she appreciates where her character is going,

“There is a soft spot that I have actually developed for Quinn as I have played her,” said Byers. “And I think that we can all relate to [her], even if we’ve never been in those exact circumstances. We can relate to the feelings that are there.”

The “Empire” actress continued,

“So, for Quinn, there have been feelings of being despondent, feelings of hopelessness and I think that when we kind of go through the colors of our own canvas and our own emotions, we find that there are those places to delve into and say, ‘Oh, I haven’t really visited this one in a long time.’ And to lend that to the character, I think, was a little cathartic. It was a blessing to me to be able to do it.”

The newest season is currently streaming on the Prime Video.
