Disney has released a new trailer for the second season of the Hulu Original series, “Woke”. The series follows cartoonist Keef Knight, who is now a popular activist on the rise, but he’s facing a world where “woke” has become big business. Can Keef and his friends bring about real change, or is it just about the dollar$? And can Keef navigate this new world without destroying what he’s become? Inspired by the life and work of artist Keith Knight, “Woke” continues to upend Black nerd and activist culture, deftly satirizing with a wink and a smile.
Check out the trailer:
The series stars Lamorne Morris, Blake Anderson, T. Murph, Sasheer Zamata and JB Smoove.
