Dave Season 2 - What We Know So Far

When the first season of Dave premiered in 2020, no one knew that it would go on to become one of FX's most popular comedy series. It centers around an ordinary guy named Dave Burd, who is in his mid-20s, and convinced he's going to be one of the greatest rappers of all time. In fact, Burd, also known as Lil' Dicky, says it throughout the first season quite frequently. The show is a semiautobiographical take on Dave Burd's actual life in the hip-hop industry, which is pretty cool since people are interested in peeling back the curtains on a life like that.

Now that Dave is streaming on Hulu, it's become an even more popular show, which leads fans to wonder if and when there will be a second season, who will be involved, and if there is a trailer showing the goods. Behold, here is all the inside gossip on what we know about the second season of Dave, but prepared for spoilers ahead!

When is the release date?

Because of the huge success season 1 had in spring 2020, it didn't take long for FX to announce it would add on another season in 2021. Co-creators Dave Burd and Jeff Schaffer will work on episodes being between 24 and 32 minutes long and will start where season 1 left off with Dave's journey to becoming successful.

The finale of season 1 left things up in the air, but what is for sure is that Dave and his girlfriend, Ally, played by Taylor Misiak, broke up. He also debuted a new song, with a bizarre new music video. To top it off, he got a big break when he landed a guest spot on a radio show, The Breakfast Club with Charlamagne Tha God, DJ Envy, and Angela Yee. According to Inverse, by comparing events to Burd's real life, they'll guess that the song, "$ave Dat Money" will be a factor in molding season 2. This happened prior to having a spot on The Breakfast Show, so if the timeline is a little skewed, it could still work. 

Burd also came out with the song, "Molly," which is about his IRL ex-girlfriend getting married to someone else. Could this foreshadow his breakup with Ally in the show? Time will tell, and as of right now, and unfortunately, there isn't a concrete release date in 2021. That said, Burd did confirm to Distractify on March 30, 2021, that he's officially finished working on season 2, so a release date announcement should be imminent.

Who will be coming back, and who will we meet?

The casting in season 1 was solid, and everyone involved, including Mike (Andrew Santino), GaTa (Davionte "GaTa" Ganter), Travis "Taco" Bennet as Elz, Ally (Taylor Misiak), and Christine Ko (Emma), were pivotal characters of making the show successful. As for season 2? Well, it'll be a continuation of the first season, which means that the main characters will likely be back in action. This also includes the main cast that was listed above, and of course, Dave as himself, as Lil' Dicky.

According to Deadline, Pitch alumna Meagan Holder is set to play a recurring role in Dave season 2, as Tessa, an executive at the record label Dave is signed on to. She will keep a close eye on him, which means she'll be along for the ride to keep tabs on him, while keeping him on track, as well.

Is there a trailer?

While season 2 was announced in 2020, during the pandemic, a trailer hasn't been released yet. It is a good assumption that filming has begun since season 2 will be released this year, so it's only a matter of time before fans will get their hands on some sneak peeks in the season 2 trailer. 

In the meantime, season 1 of Dave is available on Hulu to stream, and the trailer for season 1 is also available to watch on YouTube. Who knows, maybe you missed someone in the first season, or you might need a refresher on how ridiculous Dave is; in a good way, of course. Because Dave Burd, AKA Lil' Dicky is a rising star in real life, he has also landed himself on Jimmy Kimmel Live, just in case you're having withdrawals. Maybe an award or two is in the rapper-actor's horizon?
