Forget what you've heard about Netflix canceling all of its shows! The streamer has been on a renewal spree as of late, picking up the likes of 3 Body Problem, Tires, Worst Roommate Ever, and The Ultimatum franchise for additional seasons. Among that list was the underrated comedy series The Vince Staple Show from creator, writer, and star Vince Staples.

Netflix announced The Vince Staples Show season 2 renewal on May 30, which was over three months after its premiere in February. Upon release earlier this year, the satirical dark comedy series didn't post huge numbers that pointed toward an obvious renewal, but it was well-liked by both viewers and critics. Currently, the series holds a 94% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

Along with the renewal announcement for season 2 from Netflix, Staples himself released a statement expressing his excitement for the follow-up season and teased a little bit of what's to come in the next episodes. While his wish for 365 episodes might not come true (it's still Netflix, after all), he promised that the "riveting, captivating, and polarizing" show would be back for more hijinks:

"The Vince Staples Show is back! The people have spoken and the most riveting, captivating, and polarizing show on Netflix is returning for Season 2. Get ready for hijinks that only a mother can love. Thank you, Netflix! There are 365 days in a year, so we’re able to have 365 episodes of this thing because they’re all based on what it’s like to just exist day-to-day. Next for Vince is literally anything because anything could happen at any moment, that’s just how life works."

Anything really could happen on The Vince Staples Show, and it's hopeful that much more will happen in season 2. The first season only contained five episodes that were between 19 to 26 minutes in length. In total, the full season's runtime (112 minutes!) doesn't even exceed that of most movies these days. Fingers crossed, Netflix significantly increases the episode count for season 2.

The series, which also comes from executive producer Kenya Barris, was originally billed as a limited series on Netflix's website. However, at the time of the show's release, Staples was encouraging fans to click the "thumbs up" button on the streamer as a show of support for a potential pickup. In an interview with Complex, Staples also addressed the first season's shorter order and said he hoped that would help them "get more," also noting a possible fast turnaround for season 2.

Currently, Staples is on tour in Europe through June in support of his new album Dark Times, with additional dates in June and August before bringing the tour to the United States in October through November. Netflix hasn't indicated when writing and production will begin, but we can make an educated guess that the (hopefully longer) season 2 will premiere in 2025.
