The end of January can't come soon enough. Netflix just announced that The Vince Staples Show is set for a February 2024 release. Yes, you read that right. Rapper and actor Vince Staples has his own TV show coming to Netflix soon, and he's starring in it too!
The Vince Staples Show is an upcoming Netflix original series co-created by Staples, Ian Edelman, and Maurice Williams. In addition, Black-ish creator Kenya Barris took over executive producer duties along with Staples, Edelman, Williams, Corey Smyth, and William Stefan Smith.
What is The Vince Staples Show about?
Netflix describes it as a show of "satirical tales." Although it's a fictional scripted series, it's also loosely based on Staples’ life. In the comedy-drama show, viewers follow Staples as he navigates the ups and downs of everyday life in his hometown of Long Beach, California. Staples stars as himself in the series.
Here's the official synopsis via Netflix Media Center:
"Who’s Vince Staples? Well, that’s a tricky question. He’s kind of famous, but he’s not. He’s kind of rich, but he’s not. He’s also kind of a criminal. But he’s…not? Follow him on his daily adventures, where anything that can go wrong usually does."
As mentioned above, Staples is a rapper and actor. You might recognize him from his previous appearances on some of the Odd Future members' projects. He has five studio albums, including Summertime '06, FM!, and Ramona Park Broke My Heart. When it comes to his acting work, you might've watched him in the sports comedy film White Men Can't Jump and the workplace comedy series Abbott Elementary.
Joining Staples in the cast of The Vince Staples Show are Vanessa Bell Calloway, Andrea Ellsworth, Naté Jones, Arturo Castro, Scott MacArthur, Bryan Greenberg, and Myles Bullock.
When is The Vince Staples Show coming to Netflix?
Mark your calendar because the new comedy-drama is scheduled to land on Netflix on Thursday, Feb. 15, 2024. There are five episodes in total, and you can expect all of them to drop on Netflix at 12:00 a.m. PT/3:00 a.m. ET on Feb. 15.
The show has been billed as a limited series, so we can expect the complete story to be told in the first season. This also means the show won't be returning for a second installment in the future.
Additionally, Netflix has given The Vince Staples Show a TV-MA age rating, meaning it's meant to be watched by mature, adult audiences only. It was given this age rating for strong language, nudity, smoking, and violence. Overall, we recommend watching this series when no kids are around.
