Janelle Monae & Stephan James Tease A 'More Expansive' Season 2 of 'Homecoming'!

Janelle Monae sits down onstage to discuss the upcoming season season of Homecoming during the Amazon studios panel held at the 2020 Winter TCA Tour Day 8 at The Langham Huntington on Tuesday (January 14) in Pasadena, Calif.

The 33-year-old actress and singer was joined at the event by her co-stars Stephan James and Hong Chau, as well as co-creators Sam Esmail, Eli Horowitz, Michael Bloomberg and Kyle Patrick Alvarez.

Janelle Monáe will step into a lead role on the show that previously starred Julia Roberts

“When I saw Season 1 and I listened to the podcast, I was a fan. When I had the opportunity to be a part of the show, I said, ‘Hell yeah!’ I moved my schedule around and I made it happen,” Janelle expressed (via IndieWire). “It’s just been an honor to join this family and to push myself as an artist to give the best performance that I possibly can.”

“This season is much more expansive in its locations and its energies. It’s much more aiming outside that narrative world and not as contained within the facility,” Horowitz said of the new season

“It some ways, this season goes far afield from where we were in Season 1. In other ways, it’s directly tied to the moments where we left off in Season 1 and is intimately involved with more the corporate side of what was done to the men and the consequences of that,” Bloomberg added.
