‘Reservation Dogs’ is a comedy series set in rural Okmulgee, Oklahoma. It follows the lives of four Indigenous youths known as the Rez Dogs.
They aspire to visit California in the future and begin saving money by stealing, robbing, and, ironically, battling crime. The show’s critical success is owed to its examination of Indigenous peoples through a fresh lens, that of humor.
Additionally, the show makes interesting language and culture to create a unique and genuine environment. Additionally, the acting, humor, and setting have been lauded.
The show, which Sterlin Harjo and Taika Waititi created, premiered in August 2021. As the freshman season winds down, fans are eager to learn whether a second season is in the works. We, on the other hand, have the most recent updates!

“We were ecstatic to share ‘Reservation Dogs’ with viewers and are delighted that they appear to enjoy it as much as we do. We’re delighted to buy another season early,” said Nick Grad, FX’s President of Original Programming.
Grad continued in the statement, “Sterlin Harjo fulfilled his creative vision by collaborating with Taika Waititi and the rest of the creative team, as well as the brilliant cast and crew, to create one of television’s best new comedies and a ground-breaking showcase of representation and raw talent.”
The announcement is unsurprising, given the show’s enormous popularity. Although no debut date has been announced, we anticipate ‘Reservation Dogs’ season 2 to premiere in Q3 2022.
What Could the Reservation Dogs Season 2 Plot Be About?
The first season begins with Elora, Bear, Willie Jack, and Cheese, collectively referred to as the Rez Dogs, conducting a memorial for their comrade Daniel, who died a year prior.
While the loss continues to be a part of their lives, the gang does not abandon their desire to visit California. However, another organization known as the NDN Mafia is making things difficult.
The Rez Dogs are forced to learn how to fight due to the contact battles between the two groups. Elora learns more about her mother’s death near the end of the season, while the events surrounding Daniel’s suicide are revealed in a flashback sequence.
The Rez Dogs attempt to be vigilantes while a tornado strikes the town in the season’s final episode.
The series’ sophomore installment will continue to examine the thrilling events that surround Bear, Elora, Willie Jack, and Cheese’s lives. The Rez Dogs have moved a long way as we first saw them in the season 1 premiere, as they come to terms with some of life’s harsh realities.
However, there may be much more they must contend with. However, one thing is certain: this gang of youngsters never has a dull moment. As a result, I look forward to many more adventures with the Rez Dogs!

Who will appear in Season 2 of Reservation Dogs?
While there has been no formal statement on the Season 2 cast, the four series protagonists, including Elora, Bear, Cheese, and Willie Jack, are likely to return.
Additionally, series regulars such as Bear’s mother Rita (Sarah Podemski), Officer Big (Zahn McClarnon), Mose (Lil Mike), Mekko (Funny Bone), and William “Spirit” Knifeman will likely appear (Dallas Goldtooth). We may even meet some new characters, so keep an eye out for any formal casting announcements.
“Reservation Dogs” is setting new standards in the entertainment business as the first television series to feature a majority Indigenous writing, directing, and producing team, as well as an all-Indigenous cast (per Salon).
Harjo also discussed how they approached the first casting process to locate cast members who could authenticate people of Indigenous-American ancestry.
“You have to go to these places to locate the actors,” he told Salon. “That is all that [‘Reservation Dogs’] accomplished. We went into the neighborhoods and cast.
We went out and collected tapes from Indigenous communities throughout the country. The ability is present. It just happens to be located on Hollywood Boulevard.”
