We have recently been introduced to the new show Reservation Dogs, featuring four, Indigenous teenagers who go by the name Rez Dogs.
Created by Sterlin Harjo and Taika Waititi, the show follows the teenagers’ dream of going to California and they begin to save money by fighting crime and turning into criminals themselves to steal. In the wake of season 1’s conclusion, fans are now wondering if there will be a season 2 and we’re here to explore that option.
Reservation Dogs Season 2 Renewal
Reservation Dogs has been renewed for season 2. FX announced on September 2, 2021 that the show had been greenlit for a second season.
President of Original Programming at FX, Nick Grad, stated how keen the team was to share the news of its renewal and proceeded to post the announcement before season 1 had ended.
Grad also applauded Harjo and Waititi’s creation and their ability to produce “one of TV’s best new comedies and a groundbreaking showcase of representation and raw talent.”
Due to the first season’s resounding feedback during its air time, it came as no surprise to fans that a second season was on the way. Despite it being too early for a season 2 release date, we are expecting the second chapter to drop late 2022.
Reservation Dogs season 1 began on August 9, 2021 on FX on Hulu and continued to run until September 20, 2021. The first season contained eight episodes that lasted for 25-30 minutes each, and the second season is expected to follow a similar pattern.

What Will Reservation Dogs Season 2 Be About?
As season 1 saw Elora, Bear, Willie Jack, and Cheese navigating the harsher realities of their lives and their adversity with the NDN Mafia, season 2 will likely continue to explore the shenanigans they get up to.
The Rez Dogs will also have more troubles to get out of and the aftermath of the season finale tornado is likely to be picked up on in the season 2 opening.
