What do we Know About The Show We Are Who We Are?
We Are Who We Are is a heart-wrenching story about teenage identity and sexuality – founded on a fictional US military base in Italy. The play, which explores the agony, curiosity, and excitement of an adolescent, takes place against the backdrop of the 2016 US campaign and election.
Co-produced and directed by Luca Guadagnino, it does a remarkable job of focusing on small details. Critics have termed it as a ‘small screen poem’ and live immersive, visceral, and unsalted ‘experience.
‘We Are Who We Are’ was conceptualized as a short series. But the positive reviews received by the inaugural installment paved the way for the series to continue. So, let’s give a little more information about its future details.
What will be the Release Date for We Are Who We Are Season 2?
‘We Are Who We Are Season 1 premiered on HBO on September 14, 2020. It wrapped up with its eighth episode on November 2, 2020. Now, as far as a second season goes, producer Luca Guadagnino is in it all.
He explained during an interview that he and his team of co-creators (Sean Conway, Paolo Giordano), and Francesca Maneri) had already written a ‘Bible’ for the next edition. The entire project lockdown was completed during 2020 as they did not want to waste their time. After numerous zoom calls, the crew carved a follow-up story for the show’s various characters.
Has HBO Renewed We Are Who We Are Season 2?
However, the final decision will depend on HBO. And the channel has not yet officially renewed the series. But a good rating reflecting the creative team’s willingness to move forward with the first season and the new team should guarantee Season 2.
Although the show debuted as a limited edition, we are optimistic that news of its renewal will be announced soon. If this happens in the next few months, we can expect ‘We Who Who We Are’ season 2 to premiere sometime in 2022.
It may be some time before we see the next installment as Guadagino is already working on several projects and has no intention of hurrying up any of them.
Which Celebs and Characters Will Return for the Cast of Season 2 of We are who we are?
The lead cast of Are We’re Who We Are features Chloe Savane as Sarah Wilson (a colonel in the United States Army). Sarah is the mother of Fraser (Jack Dylan Grazer) – who moves to Veneto. Alice Braga stars as Maggie Teixeira – a Major in the US Army and Sarah’s wife.
We also have Jordan Christine Cimon as Katlyn Pothress (a girl who befriends Fraser and struggles with her sexual identity). Kaitlin’s family is accompanied by her brother Danny (Spence Moore II), her father Lt. Col. Richard Pothres (Scott Meskudi), and her mother Jenny (Faith Albee).
Other important characters include Brittany Orton, Sam Pritchett as Ben Taylor, Corey Knight as Craig Pritchett, and Francesca Scorsese by Tom Mercier as Jonathan Kritchevsky. Barring Knight (whose character is killed in the punishing episodes of Season 1), the rest of the cast are expected to return for season 2.
What Can we expect from the Plot of We Are Who We Are Season 2?
Season 1’s We Are Who We Are ends on a heartfelt note. Fraser and Caitlin say their goodbyes with a warm kiss. But this does not mean that they are a couple – it means that they are teenagers, who do not live life on the terms of others.
So what does the gesture indicate for their future? According to the creators, the story in Season 2 could go through a time leap – showcasing Katlin and Fraser in their 20s. On the other hand, season 1 is set in 2016, when the presidential election ended a phase in American society (according to producer Luca Guadagnino).
Therefore, Season 2 will most likely be heard against the backdrop of the 2020 presidential elections. Guadagnino has already indicated that he would love to capture the stories of various characters as they grapple with their hopes, ambitions and identities – in an uncertain political environment.
Is there any Official Trailer Released For We Are Who We Are Season 2 By HBO?
No, as of now HBO is yet to officially renew season 2 of the show. So till then, we will have to wait for the trailer for the upcoming season of we are who we are. Though you can watch the trailer of season 1 of the show given above.
