“Wayne” has proven to be the ultimate underdog, both on and off-screen, since its debut on YouTube’s premium channel in 2019. In order to recover his father’s vanished Pontiac Trans-Am, enraged adolescent Wayne (Mark McKenna) embarks on a harrowing road trip with his girlfriend Del (Ciara Bravo). Viewers devoured this chaotic, vulgar adventure that resembles a John Green novel and “Dirty Harry.” A lack of support was never the problem. Rather, “Wayne” was forced to live on the streets when YouTube decided to abandon the scripted originals sector.
When Amazon Prime bought the streaming rights to Season 1 of “Wayne” in November 2020, it breathed new life into the ageing show. Wayne and Del’s breathtaking road trip journey has attracted a slew of new viewers, who are eager to see what else the show has in store for them. There is no official word from Amazon on whether or not “Wayne” will be renewed for a second season.
To put it another way, the critically-acclaimed teenage drama, which currently has a 100% Rotten Tomatoes rating, is on hold. Shawn Simmons, the show’s creator, has high hopes for “Wayne,” despite the fact that Amazon has not yet purchased a second season. What do we know so far about a possible second season of “Wayne”?
Wayne Season 2 Release Date
Season 2 of “Wayne” has not yet been renewed, so there is no information on a possible premiere date. In the event that Amazon buys a second season, viewers may have to wait a while for new content. Since Season 1 was released in 2019, the cast has been working on a variety of projects.
According to a press release from Peacock, “One of Us Is Lying” is currently in pre-production. The second season of “Wayne” will have to wait until the young actor’s schedule permits it, as there is no “Wayne” without Wayne. It’s reasonable to assume that, if “Wayne: Season 2” wraps up in the second half of next year, McKenna will begin filming Season 2 of “Wayne” in late 2021, with a release date no later than 2022’s summer.
That is, if Amazon decides to renew the show for a second season before McKenna and the rest of the cast move on to something else.
What would the plot of Wayne Season 2 be?
Simmons’ hometown of Brockton, Massachusetts, serves as the setting for “Wayne,” which is a personal story for the author. The result of this is that he’s already written and plotted out Season 2’s first episode while still waiting to hear from Amazon about whether or not the show will be renewed. In a November 2020 interview with Inverse, the show’s creator revealed what the future holds for Wayne and Del.
Simmons remarked, “I don’t believe it’s a big deal to say Wayne’s in juvy.” “Del’s in a position I won’t get into, but the whole season is about Wayne trying to go straight, trying to reclaim Del and find the tranquilly he deserves,” he continues.
Season 2 is something that Mark McKenna hopes will come to fruition. Season 2’s “Wayne” narrative is “the best I’ve ever seen,” he reportedly said to the showrunner, per Inverse. As a matter of fact, “It would be… extremely lovely if I could.”
There haven’t been any new episodes of “Wayne” since the beginning of 2019. “Wayne” is the only show that has a chance of making a comeback after so long an absence.
Cast of Wayne Season 2
Mark McKenna, who plays the eponymous, nunchuck-wielding, motorcycle-riding bad guy with a good heart, should return to lead the way in the sequel because Wayne wouldn’t be the same without, well, Wayne. Ciara Bravo, who portrays Del, the Bonnie to his Clyde, should return to the series because of his feelings for her (despite the fact that she is being sought by her father and goon-like siblings across state borders).
Wayne hasn’t yet killed anyone with his ultraviolent methods, so the rest of the cast should reunite as well. It is reasonable to assume that the second season will feature more of Del’s father, Dean Winters, brothers Carl and Teddy (Jon and Jamie Champagne), as well as those watching out for Wayne, Principal Cole (Mike O’Malley), and Orlando’s friend, Officer Jay (James Earl), and Sgt. Stephen Geller (Joshua J Williams) (Stephen Kearin). As a result, it’s unclear whether we’ll see Reggie (Francesco Antonio), Calvin (Kirk Ward), or even Wayne’s mother in Ocala now that he’s been apprehended and returned to Brockton (Michelle Watkins). If Wayne doesn’t get to take the car back north with him as planned, we believe there is still more fighting to be done in the area of that automobile.

Wayne Reviews And Ratings
It attracted a much larger audience and increased in popularity after it was moved to Amazon Prime.
Rotten Tomatoes gave the show a perfect rating, and both fans and reviewers gave it high marks.
On average, all reviews gave the programme a score of 8 out of 10.
“It’s a tastefully brutal series,” one viewer commented.
Wayne can hit for the long ball. Wayne and Del have been compared to Bonnie and Clyde by many.
The major characters, on the other hand, have a more compelling rationale for their rampage.
At first glance, it appears that there is an order to the chaos. In IndieWire’s Ben Travers’ opinion, the portrayal was excellent.
“Wayne may be familiar with other stories such as the Bonnie and Clyde story,” he said. As a new series, Simmons manages to carve its own path through the icy roads of the East Coast of the United States.
In the series, Wayne and Del travel to Ocala, Florida, on their dirt bike.
Pontiac TransAm is what they want. The journey is fraught with challenges, and they must overcome each one to get to the other side.
On a spring break trip, they are mugged by a gang of kids who take their money.
A job and money are the only options Del has for making ends meet. A manager at Wayne’s new job is trying to deport workers in violation of the law.
Wayne, the good guy who can’t stand injustice, gradually transforms into a vigilante who saves others while amassing a rap sheet.
