Ava DuVernay’s (When They See Us) anthology series Cherish the Day was renewed for a second season at OWN, as The Hollywood Reporter reports. Having debuted its first season in February, the series follows a couple moving throughout the monumental stages of their relationship.
While the first season starred Xosha Roquemore (The Mindy Project), Alano Miller (Jane the Virgin), and Cicely Tyson (Sounder, The Help), the second season, which will begin production in 2021, will feature a completely different set of actors, following its anthological format. DuVernay clarified her show’s premise in a statement reported by The Hollywood Reporter, “Our Cherish the Day audience embraces and applauded the evolution of a Black couple building a life together in our first season, and we can’t wait to bring another story of love and connection to the small screen.” As in the first season, Raynelle Swilling (I Feel Bad) and Teri Schaffer (I Feel Bad) will stay on as co-executive producers.
Alongside Cherish the Day, OWN is also home to DuVernay’s drama Queen Sugar which just recently began filming its fifth season with COVID-19 guidelines in place. They plan on integrating notable issues of 2020, including the ongoing pandemic and Black Lives Matter protests in the upcoming season.
