As the trailer of “Little America” yet arrived and the show is not yet released, Apple just announced season 2 of Little America just ahead of the release of Little America season 1. That’s huge!
The new Apple TV Plus show “Little America” has already created buzz as the series is written by Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon, who also wrote The Big Sick. Also, Lee Eisenberg (who’s worked on The Office and SMILF) and Alan Yang (Master of None and Parks and Recreation) are executive producers of the show.
Little America is the anthology series based on true stories from Epic Magazine. The show is about immigrants in the US. Well, the trailer of the show is yet to release, but the release date of Little America has already been revealed by Apple as the show is arriving on Apple TV+ on January 17th. The great thing is Apple will release the entire season at once, which means you don’t have to wait just like you did for See and The Morning Show. And the huge news is Apple has already committed for the Little America season 2.
Apple is now focusing on creating quality shows rather than quantity. And they think that Little America would stand with that as its family-friendly material. So, Apple has also revealed the detail of Little America’s eight episodes, which you can see below in more detail. Each episode will have half an hour run time.
