Wu-Tang: An American Saga Season 2 arrived on September 8, Wednesday on Hulu, and there’s already so much hype about it. Both the seasons of the popular autobiographical show emphasize the founding of the eponymous Wu-Tang coterie. However, season 2 is more likely to dive deeper into music than the first season.
The show’s first season illustrated how the clan got together, including the origin of Bobby Diggz, also known as RZA. Moreover, there are a lot of speculations regarding season 2. The fans have extremely high hopes for the series this time. Well, is the show binge-worthy? Let’s find out.
What is the Series All About? Is it Binge-worthy?
The Wu-Tang clan was one of the most influential hip-hop music groups in the 1990s. Moreover, the clan is considered one of the most unique music groups, not because they had elements of eastern philosophies in their music, but because they consisted of dozens of artists. Some of them were singers, and others were DJs.
As told from the perspective of RZA, the series has is a fictional representation of the clan on Hulu. However, RZA himself is the executive producer of the show alongside Alex Tse. The series drives the audience all through the Staten Island, NYC, and Park Hill neighborhood. Well, the series is totally binge-worthy if you want to know more about the Wu-Tang clan. The group has influenced several lives during the 90s.
What to Expect from Wu-Tang: An American Saga Season 2?
The autobiographical series Wu-Tang: An American Saga Season 2 premiered on September 8, exclusively on Hulu. The first episode is titled “Little Ghetto Boys.” And trust me when I say this, the episode stayed true to the title. The pilot episode delved into the personal troubles that the artists faced in the spotlight. While the first season sheds light on the formation of the clan, the second one tells the tale of how “36 Chambers” was created.
The first episode opens with Bobby Diggs chilling out with his girlfriend at a party. However, one of his exes ends up stalking him and the clan, and things go really rough there. Likewise, episode 2, titled “Brooklyn Zoo,” opens with Diggs watching a Kung-fu movie. The irony here is that the show’s title is derived from the same form of martial arts. Besides that, it also has a lot to do with “36 chambers”. As a matter of fact, the show is full of irony and symbolism.
Did it Live Up to Viewers’ Expectations?
There are a lot of reviews regarding the first and second episode of Wu-Tang: An American Saga Season 2. Some people say that they are glad that the plot is not just sticking to Bobby Diggs. Although Diggs’s first episode was a true focus, the plot shifted to Divine in episode 2. Besides that, the show’s script is slow and steady in the beginning, but it gritters as the plot moves forward.
Speaking about the acting, the characters have done total justice with their roles. The series is full of emotions like happiness, sorrow, pain, friendship, etc. And the cast has done their job beautifully. We believe that this is definitely a series that one should not skip. There is a lot to learn about the clan and from the clan.
