The release of the righteous gemstones seasons 2 cast, review, rating, and released updates have been highly anticipated by fans. The series is based on a group of friends who are also rockstars in their own right. These four best friends have a lot to deal with, from family issues to drug addiction and everything else in between. Season 1 ended with one of them being killed off, so it will be interesting to see how the new season deals with that loss while building upon everything that made the first season so successful.
Who is staring in The Righteous Gemstones Season 2:
Bobby Lee as Eddie Fontaine, the guitarist for one of the band’s bands. He is married to Sally, and they are expecting their first child together.
Megan Ferguson as Denny Bonaventure, a former drug addict who is now living in rehab while she tries to get her life back on track. She also has sex with Buddy this season which causes some drama between them all because he was her ex-boyfriend before he died, so it seemed like cheating when she did it again after his death.
Margaret Cho as Suze Fenton/Sister Suzie Castaneda – The sister of Jimbo (the lead singer from another band) and cousin of Bear.
What is the released date:
Currently, there’s no set premiere date for Season 2. Given that Season 1 wrapped in October of 2019, it initially seemed like the show would return in Summer 2020. But the pandemic slowed down the production. In a Deadline story from March 2020, Righteous Gemstones was included on a list of shows, including Season 2 of HBO’s Euphoria and the first season of HBO Max’s The Flight Attendant starring Kaley Cuoco, that shut down production as the coronavirus continued to spread. Rough House Pictures, McBride’s production company founded with filmmakers David Gordon Green and Jody Hill, is based in Charleston, South Carolina, where The Righteous Gemstones primarily shoots. In an interview from June 2020, writer and performer Edi Patterson revealed that the show’s second season was already written, and they “shot for two days in South Carolina and had to shut down.”
In a later interview with Gold Derby, McBride revealed that the shooting wouldn’t begin again until 2021. So don’t expect to see the second season until summer or fall 2021 at the earliest. In February 2021, a casting company put out a call for extras in Charleston. In March 2021, Tona B. Dahlquist Casting began posting additional casting notices for “wrestling arena scenes” and a “late 1960s protest scene” that would shoot in March, indicating that production is underway.
In that the Gold Derby interview from last year, McBride mentioned the possibility of a Christmas special, which the Gemstones would certainly put their own distinct spin on. But in a more recent interview from November 2020 with Collider, Walton Goggins mentioned that they weren’t able to film the Christmas special this year. “That had to wait too because of the uptick,” he said when asked about the Gemstones Christmas special. “We were gonna do that. Maybe there’ll be a special this next year. You never know.”
What is the plot?
The righteous Gemstones are back for Season two! In this episode, we find the family living on their newly-acquired farm in East Texas. They’re a few weeks into the school year, and they’re loving life–except for Amethyst, who’s missing her friends from Palmetto. She wants to go home, but Garnet is adamant that they stay put because of all the bad publicity from last season. Unfortunately, while everyone else might be adjusting to rural life–they’ve made some new enemies (and allies) since moving out there thanks to Junior being unintentionally disrespectful in town where he doesn’t know anyone yet. And then things get even more complicated when an old enemy shows up at their door with a proposition that could change everything.
What are you expecting in a new season?
Throughout the new season, The Righteous Gemstones will find out that a lot has changed since they left town. And not just in Palmetto–Amethyst’s friends have all grown up and moved on with their lives too. Garnet is concerned about her daughter, but Amethyst doesn’t want to be grounded anymore–she wants to go back home to see what she missed while she was gone. It’ll take some time for everyone to get used to life away from city living, but at least Junior isn’t going it alone this go-around because he met someone who seems like an old friend of his…until they show their true colors after being rejected by him once again.
