Hulu Acquires “Rūrangi” Season 2 Rights
Disney has picked up the exclusive streaming rights for the second season of the New Zealand drama series, for Hulu in the United States.
The first season of the show told the story of a transgender activist Caz Davis who returns to the remote, politically divided dairy community of Rūrangi, hoping to reconnect with his estranged father, who hasn’t heard from him since before Caz transitioned. In the second season, Rūrangi’s culture war intensifies between the transgender activists, farmers, and local Māori, while ancestors from the past reach out to the living with unfinished business.
According to Deadline, the second season is currently in post-production and is aiming to be ready in early 2023.
“Rūrangi” stars Elz Carrad, Āwhina Rose Henare Ashby, Ramon Te Wake, Aroha Rawson, Renee Lyons, Renée Sheridan, Cohen Holloway and Liam Coleman.
Rūrangi showrunners are Max Currie and Briar Grace-Smith. The series writer is Cole Meyers, and lead producer is Craig Gainsborough for Autonomouse. Co-producers are Tweedie Waititi, Graham Tipene, Lucean Lunare and Melissa Nickerson.
The first season is available to stream now on Hulu.
