It has been revealed that Lil Dicky will be back with his role in the next season. Season two of Dave was announced in May 2020, and it has been confirmed that the filming for the show has started.
LIL DICKY DOING HIS BEST
Lil Dicky, a familiar face in the music industry, is the co-creator and is also playing the lead role in this show. The show walks us through the story of a young rapper in his late 20s, Dave. More simply, we can say that the show is based on the life of David Burd (stage name is Lil Dicky). As he struggles to make a name for himself among the other competitive artists, his stage name Lil Dicky and persona are a joke in front of everyone he knows.
Dave sets his mind on achieving success in the music industry. GaTa plays the hype man on stage for Dave. He is also the real-life hype man for David in many shows. The show is based on the current situation of Lil Dicky where he fails to achieve the top position and tries to bring fame to his name by a television show.
JUSTIN BIEBER WITH A GUEST APPEARANCE
Many music artists and celebrities like Justin Bieber, Trippie Redd, Marshmello, and Kourtney Kardashian are seen doing a guest’s appearance. FX’s show Atlanta was compared to Dave by many critics. Donald Glover’s show ratings took a hit after the first season of Dave released in March.
The series’ music composer is Lil Dicky himself, along with Jasper Lee Harris and Jahnei Clarke. The first season had ten episodes that were released in March 2020 and till the end of April. David addressed in an interview on how he thought that the show would attract only his real-life fans, but looking at the positive reviews the first season got, the artist himself was impressed at the work he did with the production team.
The remaining cast includes Taylor Misiak playing Ally (Dave’s girlfriend). Andrew Santino plays Mike. He is Dave’s roommate and manager. Travis Bennett and Christina Ko play the role of Dave’s closest friends, Elliot and Emma.
KEVIN HART PRODUCES THE SHOW
Many production companies and directors appreciated the show co-creator Schaffer’s work in the series. Kevin Hart and his production company Hart Beat Productions is the producer of the series along with Greg Mottola, Mike Hertz, and Scooter Braun.
The first season focused on introducing Lil Dicky’s life with his struggle for making a name for himself. The fans are expecting more to come, and it surely will come with this new season. Due to the pandemic, no date of release has been announced yet. As most television shows are delayed until 2021, we can expect the new season to release sometime in 2021.
