“Wayne” has proven to be the ultimate underdog since its 2019 premiere on YouTube’s premium service, and this has been true both on and off-screen. An angry adolescent named Wayne (Mark McKenna) embarks on a bloody road trip with his girlfriend Del (Ciara Bravo) in order to recover his father’s Pontiac Trans-Am, which has gone missing. A wild, profane ride that feels like someone mixed a John Green novel with “Dirty Harry” in a blender — and viewers ate it up! The problem was never a scarcity of supporters. Instead, “Wayne” was forced to live on the streets after YouTube decided to exit the scripted originals business.
Then, in November 2020, Amazon Prime acquired the streaming rights to Season 1 of “Wayne,” giving the show a second lease on life. The show has gained in popularity since then, with more viewers discovering Wayne and Del’s jaw-dropping road trip adventure, and those same viewers are clamoring for more. While Amazon has not officially renewed “Wayne” for a second season, the show has not been canceled, which is unfortunate.
As a result, the critically acclaimed teen dramedy — which currently has a perfect score of 100 percent on Rotten Tomatoes — is currently in a state of suspension. Despite the fact that Amazon hasn’t officially ordered a second season of “Wayne,” the show’s creator, Shawn Simmons, has big plans for the series. Continue reading to find out everything we know so far about the potential “Wayne” Season 2!
Wayne Season 2 Release Date
Without an official renewal, it’s anyone’s guess as to when more Wayne will appear on the scene. When asked about the show’s Season 2 premiere, showrunner Shawn Simmons told Screenrant that he’s already written it and has the entire season planned out, so if Amazon decides to renew its dark comedy, it appears that the team won’t need much time to finish writing the rest of the script before going into production.
Keeping track of what the show’s stars are doing in the meantime is also important. In addition to his role on One of Us Is Lying, Mark McKenna has landed a key role on the upcoming Peacock teen drama One of Us Is Lying, which is currently in the process of filming, according to IMDb. In the fall of 2021, the actor will embark on a tour with his (excellent, The 1975-inspired) band milk, which will take him across the country.
Despite the fact that Ciara Bravo’s schedule appears to be open in the near future, Dean Winters, who plays her father, is one of the stars of Peacock’s Tiger King-inspired show Joe Exotic, which has just begun pre-production and will premiere in the fall. Given that the cast will not be available to film until early 2022, it doesn’t appear that we will be returning to Brockton any time soon.
According to that speculative timeline, Wayne won’t be back until the latter part of 2022, if the show is given the green light for another season. Fans who tuned in to Wayne when it first premiered on YouTube in early 2019 may think they’ve been waiting a long time, but if it all works out, it’ll be just as satisfying as one of Wayne’s (unhinged) acts of vengeance.

Wayne Season 2 Plot
The season finale of Wayne was a punch in the gut for the audience, who had been subjected to a great deal of violence throughout the first season of the television show. While the anti-hero may have triumphed in his battle against his gator-owning adversary Reggie and retrieved his father’s car, Del’s family and the authorities have finally apprehended him and his friends. Due to the fact that Wayne is being hauled back up to Brockton by the law enforcement, Shawn Simmons confirmed to Inverse that Season 2 will almost certainly begin with Wayne in prison. “The entire season is about Wayne trying to get his life back on track, trying to earn back Del, and trying to find the peace he deserves,” he explained. So, is it possible that he will break out of prison for her? We wouldn’t put it past him to pull it off! Although, if he’s attempting to clean up his act in order to potentially gain the approval of Del’s father, this may not be the case at all. Based on the final shot of him holding onto her nameplate in the Season 1 finale, it appears that he is willing to go to any lengths to obtain her attention and save his own skin.
Even though it’s unclear where Del will end up next season, Simmons confirmed to Inverse that we’ll be seeing even more of her father. That means that either winning him over or convincing Del to run away will be a major challenge next season. In an interview with Screenrant, Mark McKenna stated that he would like to see Wayne “feel something other than anger” in the upcoming episodes, and finding his way back to Del might just tick all of those boxes.
No matter what happens, Simmons told Screenrant that, having had a lot of time to think about the next season, he already knows where the action-comedy is going to take it, which sounds even bigger and more badass than the first season. In the meantime, while we await further information from Wayne, keep checking back as we’ll update this post with new information as soon as it is made available.
Wayne Season 2 Cast
Wayne wouldn’t be the same without, well, Wayne, so Mark McKenna, who portrays the titular, nunchuck-wielding, motorbike-driving bad boy with a heart of gold, should unquestionably return to lead the way in the second installment. Due to his feelings for Del, the Bonnie to his Clyde (despite the fact that she is being pursued by her father and goon-like brothers across state lines), Ciara Bravo, who plays the sassy teen, should also be back in the series.
Wayne hasn’t killed anyone yet with his ultra-violent ways, so it makes sense for the rest of the cast to be back together as a group as well. More of Del’s father, played by Dean Winters, and her brothers Carl and Teddy (twins Jon and Jamie Champagne), as well as the few who were looking out for Wayne, Principal Cole (Mike O’Malley), and his friend Orlando (Joshua J. Williams), as well as those who were on his tail, Officer Jay (James Earl) and Sgt. Stephen Geller, can be expected in the second season (Stephen Kearin). However, now that Wayne has been apprehended and is being transported back to Brockton, it is unclear whether or not we will see more of his adversaries down in Ocala, such as Reggie (Francesco Antonio), his stepfather Calvin (Kirk Ward), or even his mother (Michelle Watkins). In our opinion, there is probably still more fighting to be done in the area of that car, especially if Wayne doesn’t get to take it back up north with him as he originally planned.
