Jasmine Cephas Jones in S2 of Blindspotting
There is always uncertainty with projects developed during the pandemic. With Blindspotting on Starz, co-creators Rafael Casal and Daveed Diggs found a refreshing storytelling technique that combined drama, comedy, dancing, and spoken words into every episode making it one of the best series on today.
Now with the sophomore season of Blindspotting, the family enters into real and surreal shenanigans as they live their topsy-turvy lives.
The series star Jasmine Cephas Jones (Monsters and Men, Mrs. Fletcher), Helen Hunt (As Good as It Gets, Twister), Jaylen Barron (Free Rein, Explosion Jones), Candace Nicholas-Lippman (Airport Security Squad, Good Trouble), and Benjamin Earl Turner (Snowfall, We Were Hyphy).
Here is the synopsis of the series:
Blindspotting centers on Ashley (Jones), who was nipping at the heels of a middle-class life in Oakland until Miles (Casal), her partner of 12 years and father of their son, Sean (Atticus Woodward) was suddenly incarcerated, leaving her to navigate a chaotic life when she is force to move in with Miles’s mother, Rainey (Hunt), and sister, Trish (Jaylen Barron).
The new season maintains a lighthearted an fun tone while simultaneously tackling complex issues with a comedic and innovative twist, spotlighting the hilarious hijinks Ashley and family get into as she attempts to navigate the crazy chaos of her life in the Bay Area.
Season 2 picks up nine months after Ashley and Miles’s prison nuptials in the season one finale, Ashley is doing backflips to try and raise their son on her own. She is reaching her breaking point and is taking it out on everyone around her. Miles is adjusting to life on the inside and counting down the days before their first family visitation weekend at San Quentin. Rainey is doing her best to make Ashley and Sean feel at home while trying to find a way to stay connected to her son behind bars, but Ashley holds all the cards. Trish’s new business is flourishing, but she is dealing with jealousy issues now that her best friend and business partner Jacque (April Absynth) is dating Cuddie (Lance Holloway). Janelle (Candace Nicholas-Lippman) is growing frustrated with Ashley’s constant need for support and has begun to miss her life back in Bali. And then of course Earl (Benjamin Turner), fresh out of prison himself for unintentionally breaking his probation, has moved out of Nancy’s (Margo Hall) house and is trying to re-establish a relationship with his own family, and his past.
