I am Not Okay with This Season 2: Renewed or Canceled?
Looking at the ending of the first season, we can see that the creators are planning to make the second installment, and that is right. At least that was the plan, until the COVID-19 pandemic ruined it.
Despite all the success this TV series got, Netflix (Black Lightning Season 5) in August 2020 officially canceled I am Not Okay with This season 2 because of the pandemic. Fans who are disappointed and cannot accept that, even made a petition to continue the show, but nothing has happened just yet.
There are speculations that the uncertainty due to pandemic impacted the schedule, the cast, and even the increasing budget, that led to the cancelation of I am Not Okay with This season 2.
This cancelation, in fact, not only frustrates the fans, but also the creators as well, who really want to move forward with I am Not Okay with This season 2.
Although it is canceled for now, there is still a chance for Netflix (LA’s Finest Season 3) to pick up the show once everything gets back to normal, considering its great rating and viewership.
I am Not Okay with This Season 2: What Could Happen?
At the end of the first season, we can see that in the homecoming party, Sydney and Dina are dancing. Dina admits that she didn’t not like the kiss—as both of them are kissing at a party earlier. As they are about to kiss (again), there is an announcement of the king and the queen of the party, but gets interrupted by Brad.
Brad—who steals Sydney’s diary—then announces to the whole school that Sydney Novak is a lesbian and that she loves Dina so much. And right before Brad reveals about Sydney’s superpower, his head is blown up—literally—because of Sydney’s power.
Everyone is panicking, and Sydney runs away to the tower where she used to go to calm herself. Then a mysterious figure appears, that most likely also has the same power as Sydney, and that’s a wrap.
Who is that? And what happens next to Sydney?
In I am Not Okay with This season 2, Sydney most likely will find out more about her powers, as well as the person who visits her that night. She also has to deal with her emotion, sexuality, her relationship with Dina, as well as her family issue.
Some people assume that the mysterious figure is her father, but that is just a guess. Even if it is true, there is so much explanation needed regarding where he has been hiding all this time, and how can they get the power.
I am Not Okay with This Season 2: Who Would be In It?
If there was ever I am Not Okay with This season 2, the majority of the cast would return, and that includes Sophia Lillis as Sydney Novak, Wyatt Oleff as Stanley Barber, and Sofia Bryant as Dina.
There will also be Kathleen Rose Perkins as Syd’s mother Maggie, Aidan Wojtak-Hissong as Liam, and many other cast.
