The Netflix small-screen re-imagining of the 1986 movie She’s Gotta Have It has now been officially renewed for season 2. The series, like the film, is about a young woman trying to balance her job, her friends, and her three lovers, and her search to stay true to herself. DeWanda Wise stars as Nola Darling, juggling the rich and handsome Greer Childs (Cleo Anthony), the alpha-male investment banker Jamie Overstreet (Lyriq Bent), and b-boy bike messenger Mars Blackmon (Anthony Ramos).
She’s Gotta Have It, with its progressive polyamorist lead, is still a groundbreaking concept and the first season was critically acclaimed and even won an award from the African-American Film Critics Association. Depite only premiering on Netflix in November, the series has already been confirmed for a second season.
