FX on Hulu has decided to go ahead with a second season of Taika Waititi’s original series Dogs Reservation.
The streaming platform, which serves as the hub for FX Networks, commissioned season 2 of the comedy centered around a group of native teens filmed on location on a rural Oklahoma reservation. The eight-episode first season just debuted on August 9 and has aired about half of its episodes so far.
“We were eager to share Reservation Dogs with viewers and are delighted that they seem to love it as much as we do. We are happy to place an advance order for another season, ”said Nick Grad, president of original programming at FX in a statement. Sterlin Harjo delivered his creative vision, partnering with Taika Waititi and the rest of the creative team, brilliant cast and crew to create one of TV’s best new comedies and a revolutionary showcase for representation and raw talent. “
Harjo is from Oklahoma and co-created the series with Waititi. It stars D’Pharaoh Woon-A-Tai, Devery Jacobs, Paulina Alexis and Lane Factor. The directors of the series have ensured that every writer, director and actor on the series is of Native American descent.
The series received positive attention from critics, with Decider’s Joel Keller saying Dogs Reservation is “funny, above all. But it’s also a unique look at the life of teenagers on rural Amerindian reservations, and what these teenagers resort to to get away. Read our full review of Dogs Reservation.
