AMC Networks streamer ALLBLK has greenlit a new season of the scripted millennial dating series, À La Carte.
The streamer announced today that the series created by Breanna Hogan and executive produced by Dijon Talton and Meagan Good will be returning this fall for its sophomore season.
Here’s an official description:
Season two of ‘À La Carte’ will explore who Misha, Reign, and Shyra are as friends to each other without the friend that brought them all together, Mahogany. Her absence will serve as a catalyst for comedy and drama within this new friend dynamic. In our mid-20’s, relationships of convenience are fickle, and in L.A. especially, they are not easy to sustain. The mistakes they make will bring them closer in some ways and push them further apart in others. This season, the cast will continue their independent and collective journey discovering and unraveling who they are through the lens of comedy, love, sex, fire, and trial & error.
The series is executive produced by Meagan Good and showrunner Dijon Talton.
À La Carte stars Kendall Kyndall (Games People Play) and Jenna Nolen (Animal Kingdom), Kandi Burruss (Real Housewives of Atlanta, The Chi), Juan Gil (The Cypher) and Xavier Avila (Breaking). Burrus, Gil and Avila all recurred in season 2 and have been upped to series regulars.
Season 2 will feature several newcomers including Shani Marq (Top Five) who will play the role of ‘Misha,’ India Love (College Hill: Celeb Edition) and musician Alex Jacke. Those joining the recurring cast are Romeo Miller (Growing Up Hip Hop), Tami Roman (Truth Be Told/The Ms.Pat Show), Aspen Kennedy (Kingdom Business), Terayle Hill (Step Up: High Water) and Leon Fisher (Remember), with Tammy Rivera set to appear in an episode.
“This season we get to explore, elevate and dive deeper into the characters we’ve grown to love, and introduce some really dynamic and fun new cast,” said showrunner and executive producer, Dijon Talton. “We’re excited to continue exploring the nuanced human experience of Black individuals in their mid-20’s, giving them the permission to be flawed and yet still redeemable. ALLBLK has been an incredible partner and we are grateful to continue this journey with them. We couldn’t be more excited to start production on Season 2.
“I am so excited about season two! ALLBLK has provided us with an incredible, free-spirited and supportive platform to share
and explore stories that are authentic and relatable,” says executive producer, Meagan Good. “I’m so grateful to be working with my cousin, Dijon Talton, who’s vision for À La Carte has enabled generation Z to feel seen, heard and understood all the while being allowed to be imperfect as they navigate their life experiences and grow through them.”
