HBO is ordering more Random Acts of Flyness.
The premium cable network has renewed the late-night series from Terence Nance for a second season. The show — which explores “evergreen cultural idioms such as patriarchy, white supremacy and sensuality from a new, thought-provoking perspective,” per HBO — launched its six-episode season on August 3.
“We couldn’t be happier with the response to Random Acts of Flyness – it’s struck such a powerful chord with our viewers,” said Nina Rosenstein, executive vice president of HBO Programming. “We’re thrilled to bring Terence and his team back for a second season of this provocative, remarkable series.”
The series features several interconnected vignettes in each episode that showcases an ensemble cast of both emerging and established talent. The show is a mix of vérité documentary, musical performances, surrealist melodrama and humorous animation. Nance and his collaborators weave together such themes as ancestral trauma, history, death, the singularity and romance.
The Hollywood Reporter wrote in its review that “Nance’s work is a spasmodic vision of American culture’s shifting tectonic plates” and that his series “feels less like an HBO sketch show than a museum’s modern video art installation.”
