FX’s Dave Season 2 sets return date & guest stars including Kevin Hart
FX has finally set the premiere date for the upcoming second season of their record-breaking sitcom Dave, which sees the return of titular star Dave Burd (a.k.a. rapper Lil Dicky). The series is scheduled to make its return June 16 on FXX with a two-episode premiere, then new episodes available each subsequent week. Episodes will also be available for streaming the following day via FX on Hulu.
In addition, the network has also revealed the new season’s star-studded guest lineup including K-Pop superstar CL, Kendall Jenner, Hailey Bieber, Benny Blanco, Kyle Kuzma, Doja Cat, J Balvin, Rae Sremmurd (Swae Lee & Slim Jxmmi), Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Lil Yachty, Lil Nas X, Kevin Hart and more.
Based on the life of rapper and comedian Dave Burd (stage name Lil Dicky), FXX’s Dave centers around a neurotic man in his late twenties who has convinced himself that he’s destined to be one of the best rappers of all time. Now he must convince his closest friends, because with their help he actually might convince the world.
In the second season, Dave knows he’s destined for rap superstardom – but at what cost? With the pressure mounting as he records his debut album, he has to decide if he’ll sacrifice friendships, love and his own sense of self in order to make his dream come true. Simultaneously exasperating and inspiring to his friends, Dave vows to leave no stone unturned on his quest to become the next superstar.
Season 1 notably featured a number of celebrity cameos and guest appearances, including Justin Bieber, Kourtney Kardashian, Marshmello, Macklemore, Ninja and more.
Dave is created and executive produced by Burd and Jeff Schaffer. Executive producers are Saladin K. Patterson, Ben Sinclair, Luvh Rakhe, Kevin Hart and Hartbeat Productions, Scooter Braun, Greg Mottola, Marty Bowen, Mike Hertz and SB Projects’ James Shin and Scott Manson.
The first season was a success for FX as it became the network’s most-watched comedy series ever, with an average episodic audience of 9.4 million Total Viewers to-date across linear, VOD and streaming, and that number is growing.
