'Run The World' Is Getting A Season 2! Here's The Cast Reactions & Get To Know Them Before It Returns

"Oh, we're just getting started."

Culture & Entertainment

Gather 'round ladies, our girls are coming back! That's right, Starz has officially ordered a second season of its comedy series Run the World. The show follows a group of smart, funny, and vibrant thirty-something Black women who live, work and play in Harlem. They are best friends, loyal to the soil, and looking to take over their way, as each navigates career highs and lows, hookups and heartbreaks. It's a beautifully written authentic and unapologetic show about friendships that we all wish we had.


The cast was elated for the news too, with the main ladies taking to social media to show off their elation. Continue reading for their reactions and character breakdowns. Are you excited for Season 2?!

Bresha Webb: "Thank you for falling in love with our sisterhood."

Bresha Webb's character, Renee is the free-spirited one of her group. She's soon to be divorced, highly educated, and honestly out here trying to live her best life before she has to admit she is aging. Aren't we all?

"Grateful! Gratefulness Is flowing from my heart! WE'RE BACK!!! I'm so ready to get back to Reneé'n with these beautifully talented Queens! Thank you to our wonderful fans for watching and falling in love with our sisterhood. Welcome to our family @rwilliamsbenary! Thank you to @lionsgate@starz@leighdav@theyvetteleebowser and everyone who made this happen. Let the FUN BEGIN! @runtheworldstarz#runtheworld"

Amber Stevens West: "Thrilled to keep telling these women's stories."

Amber Stevens West brilliantly portrays Whitney, a banker soon-to-be married, but struggling with her future husband's expectations of a wife.

"The news we've all been waiting for! So so thrilled we get to keep telling these women's stories. See ya in 2022! Xoxo #RuntheWorld"

Amber Bordeaux: "Oh, we're just getting started."

Andrea plays Ella McFair an up-and-coming 32-year-old writer recently dropped by her publisher. Since then, her boyfriend left for South Africa, and while she has found a way to keep living in New York, thanks to being Sondi's roommate, life certainly hasn't been easy. Of Season 2, she took to IG to say:

"Oh, we're just getting started. I'd like to share immense gratitude for every single person who has helped to make @runtheworldstarz a hit show. To the viewers, your love and support means so much! Thank you for taking this ride with us. I can't wait to see what's next for #EllaMcFair, her besties, and the other amazing characters."

Corbin Reid: "Grateful that we get to do this again."

Corbin plays Sondi Hill, a Ph.D. candidate with a focus in African-American studies. Sis is "woke" like the best of us, but thankfully, she doesn't play into the term, which we all know can dilute or complicate things more than necessary. Don't get her misconstrued, she can certainly read more into a situation than her friends, or bae Matthew. Of the renewal, Corbin says,

"So very Grateful to every single entity that made this happen, that I get to spend more time as #SondiHill and with all my girls, and that we get to do this again. It's official, @runtheworldstarz season 2 on deck baby!"

As of now, there are no details on when the show is expected to return. But we certainly can't wait to tune in to see what our new favorite ladies are going to give us. Congratulations to this talented cast!
