Today, BET+ announced the season two premiere of the hilarious and provocative fan-favorite, original comedy “Bigger,” executive produced by Will Packer and Will Packer Media, is set to return Thursday, April 22, 2021.
The 30-minute, ten-episode series will be available exclusively on BET+, with all episodes available to stream at launch.
“Will Packer, Felischa Marye, and the ‘Bigger’ team are a powerful creative force and we are thrilled to continue this partnership,” said Executive Vice President and General Manager of BET +, Devin Griffin. “Season two brings even more of their incredible storytelling with this hilarious and lighthearted comedy. As always, providing a platform for Black storytelling and content is core to our business, and this season of ‘Bigger’ continues to do just that.”
“I’m so proud of Felischa and her team. Season two is edgier, smarter, and funnier and yeah I’ll say it…BIGGER, than an already well-received first season,” said Will Packer. “Can’t wait for audiences to jump into it.”
Created by Felischa Marye, the story continues about the close-knit group of 30-somethings navigating love, friendships, and career ambitions. Season two catches up three months after the big arrest. Is the gang still thriving or frontin’?
“I’m beyond excited for the ‘Bigger’ gang to return for season two. We have such a talented ensemble who has amassed some really passionate fans with their hilarious comedy in the show,” said Felischa Marye. “It’s my pleasure to bring such comedy back during a time when we can use a little laughter.”
