Sweet Life: Los Angeles Season 2 Plot and Episodes
Sweet Life was inspired by both the Frank Ocean song, after which it is named, and the BET reality television show Baldwin Hills. The program centers on a close-knit group of young African-American friends as they go about their daily lives in South Los Angeles while pursuing “Black excellence.” The group is supportive of one another, and they are connected by their shared desire to pursue their aspirations.
The series is expected to follow the basic premise like the first season, which follows Los Angeles and offers a distinctive perspective on what it means to be a young, black, aspirational person who is always pursuing their ambitions. The coming-of-age series, which explores themes of loyalty, legacy, and love, follows a group of lifelong friends in South Los Angeles as they navigate the relatable, tumultuous mid-20s times at the quarter-life mark and help each other succeed as adults.
Moreover, the upcoming season is expected to have 10 episodes, just like the first season, with a four-episode drop on August 4, 2022. The three episodes will bow each week after, with the season wrapping on August 18, 2022. We’d also like to point out that, as of July 26, 2022, the exact episode titles and synopsis for the upcoming season cannot be confirmed and are yet to be revealed by the network, which may take some time.
