Is Naomi Season 2 happening? Read to find out.

Naomi is one of the recent DC series that came to the once Arrowverse rich CW. It is based on the comic book series of the same name by Brian Bendis, Jamal Campbell, and David F. Walker. The story follows a teen comic book enthusiast, Naomi McDuffie and her encounters with phenomena that she believed were only stories. 

The first season of the DC series went on air on January 11, 2022, and concluded on May 10, 2022. As the end of the series came close, fans started speculating on the possibility of a second season and what it might offer. Here’s everything we know about Naomi Season 2:

Naomi Season 2 Renewal Status

Unfortunately, CW canceled Ava DuVernay’s superhero drama, Naomi, just two days after the  DC series wrapped up its first season with a two-hour finale, written by DuVernay & Jill Blankenship. But according to Deadline, ARRAY Filmworks and Warner Bros TV have started hunting for interested parties who might be ready to give a green light to the project.

Why is Naomi Season 2 Cancelled?

The cancellation of the series wasn’t exactly very unexpected as it is the third DC series on which CW had put a stop. As per what we understand, the renewal status of the series has been affected by two factors; the unexpectedly disappointing performance of the series on the channel and the proposed sale of CW itself. 

What was Naomi Season 1 all about?

The series follows Naomi McDuffie, a smart teen comic book enthusiast who owns a superman fan website. Naomi seems to be pretty contented with everything she has in life, a loyal best friend, extremely supportive adoptive parents, and a mentor with a secret past. However, the serenity didn’t stay for long and a supernatural occurrence created chaos in the town. With all the help she can get, Naomi set out on a venture to find the reality behind the events and uncover some mind-blowing secrets.

Was Naomi Season 2 needed?

*Spoiler Alert*

Absolutely. Season 1 ended on a rather shocking cliffhanger where it was revealed that Naomi’s birth parents were deceived and killed and the killers are none other than Naomi’s adoptive parents. The way Jennifer and Greg were always so supportive of Naomi’s choices and wants, no one could have anticipated that they would be hiding a secret that was cruel and barbaric. Naomi Season 2 might have shed light on the hows and whys of the betrayal and would have helped the viewers to differentiate between black, white, and gray.
