Showtime Give “Dreaming Whilst Black” Season Two Renewal

Published

on


Following the success of its first season, the half-hour dramedy series “Dreaming Whilst Black” has been renewed for a second season by SHOWTIME. The show, which received critical acclaim during its initial run, has also garnered nominations from prestigious award ceremonies such as the 2024 Film Independent Spirit Awards and the NAACP Image Awards. Season two, featuring BAFTA Award-winning co-creator and star Adjani Salmon in a returning role, is set to commence filming later this year in the UK.

Season one of “Dreaming Whilst Black,” which is loosely based on actual events, tells the tale of Kwabena (played by Salmon), an aspiring filmmaker stuck in a recruiting position that doesn’t work, as he starts down the path to realising his dream.

Along the way, he grapples with financial struggles, matters of love, and his own perception of reality. The series was adapted from a web series and a BBC pilot produced by Big Deal Films that shared the same title. For her work on these projects, Salmon was awarded the 2022 BAFTA for Emerging Talent: Fiction and recognized as a Screen International Star of Tomorrow. Additionally, Salmon and the show have received accolades within the UK including The Royal Television Society’s 2022 Breakthrough Award for Salmon and nominations at both the International Emmys and Broadcast Awards.

Salmon expressed gratitude for the overwhelming response to “Dreaming Whilst Black,” saying. “I’m blessed that we have a chance to entertain da peopledem again. Like season one, our goal is to end up being shared in the Aunties WhatsApp Groups.”

Nina L. Diaz, President of Content & Chief Creative Officer at SHOWTIME/MTV Entertainment Studios & Paramount Media Networks commended Adjani Salmon’s storytelling abilities in “Dreaming Whilst Black,” describing them as an authentic and powerful force. Diaz expressed enthusiasm about greenlighting a second season and collaborating with partners A24 and Big Deal Films to further explore the captivating characters that have resonated so strongly with the Paramount+ with SHOWTIME audience.

The second season will be co-produced by UK-based indie Big Deal Films and A24. Executive producers Dhanny Joshi and Thomas Stogdon return for Big Deal Films alongside Adjani Salmon. The role of producer is filled by Nicola Gregory. The original web series was co-written by Salmon and Ali Hughes, created by Adjani Salmon, Max Evans, Laura de Sousa Seixas, and Natasha Jatania of 4 Quarters Films.

Fans can look forward to the return of “Dreaming Whilst Black” for its highly anticipated second season on streaming platforms such as Paramount+ with SHOWTIME in the U.S., BBC Three and iPlayer in the UK.
