Now that Wayne season 1 has ended, fans are awaiting the renewal news of season 2. Will Wayne be cancelled or renewed for its second edition? When does it start airing on Amazon Prime? Come along, let’s find out!’
What Is Wayne About?
Wayne is about a 16 y/o Dirty Harry, who along with his new friend, Del, sets out on a small two-stroke road bike from Boston to Florida. After the demise of his father from cancer, they set out on this mission to get back the shit-hot 79′ Trans-Am that was stolen from his father. The last episode of the series was released on January 16, 2019, in the US.
Will there be a Season 2 of Wayne?
Wayne season 1 was released on YouTube premium. The show about a teenage boy (Mark McKenna) driving cross-country from Brockton to Florida to get back his father’s stolen Pontiac Trans-Am became an instant success! It amassed millions of views on YouTube and critical acclaim. Despite being a cult favourite, Wayne faced the brunt of the streaming wars when YouTube decided to cut back on investing in original programming just months after it aired.
The show wasn’t officially cancelled by YouTube. Co-writer Rhett Reese explained it on Twitter back in 2019: “Wayne wasn’t cancelled, per se. Rather, its network was cancelled.” Thus, the show then moved to Prime Videos in November 2020. Though it was passed over to Amazon, that doesn’t imply there would be a second season. It still hasn’t officially been renewed yet. But again it’s not out of the realm of possibility.
According to sources, it’s come to notice that the cast and team behind the series are really pushing for another season. When the show was released on Amazon, the showrunner and stars posted on their respective social media handles and encouraged viewership. They said if the show gets more views on Amazon Prime, the streamer might wanna greenlight season 2. Meaning, if the show’s a success on Amazon, there’s a possibility that season 2 may happen. Besides, Co-writer Rhett Reese told Complex in December 2020 that the team behind Wayne got “good feedback from Amazon,” so the possibility is there.
When will Wayne Season 2 be released?
As aforesaid, there is a “possibility” that season 2 might happen. But without an official renewal statement, we can’t really predict when it might be released. Showrunner Shawn Simmons told that he’s already written the Season 2 premiere and has the entire season mapped out. Now, all we have to do is wait for Amazon to renew another season!
It’s also significant to note what the show’s stars are up to in the meantime. Mark McKenna is working in the teen drama series, One of Us is Lying. Ciara Bravo’s schedule appears to be available shortly, but Dean Winters, who plays her father, is among the stars of Peacock’s Tiger King-inspired show, Joe Exotic! However, adhering to the speculative timeline, Wayne season 2 will not be releasing this year. We can expect it to premiere in 2023!

- Del’s father, played by Dean Winters,
