The D'Amelio Show Season 2 - Here's What We Can Tell Fans So Far

These days, being popular on TikTok typically means that your success and name have extended past the social media platform and pivoted to even bigger modes of success. For Addison Rae, it took the form of an EP, a Netflix film, and a friendship with Kourtney Kardashian (via Seventeen); for Bella Poarch, her fame brought her a few hit songs and music videos (via Variety). But for the D'Amelio sisters, their overwhelming fame on TikTok has brought them their very own Hulu series.

Sisters Dixie and Charli D'Amelio probably never imagined that posting a few light-hearted videos to TikTok would lead to anything even vaguely resembling massive stardom. At one point, Charli's TikTok bio even read, "don't worry I don't get the hype either," per The Washington Post. But whether or not the sisters could have predicted their success, it's here — and it doesn't appear to be going away anytime soon.

Their series on Hulu, "The D'Amelio Show," premiered in 2021 and ran for eight episodes, per Deadline. It centered around 17-year-old Charli, who currently holds the title of most popular person on TikTok, with around 124.4 million followers as of September 2021 (via Dexerto). While 20-year-old Dixie doesn't have quite as many followers on the app, her success is nothing to sneeze at, as she has a whopping 54.2 million followers of her own (via PopBuzz).

Has a release date for Season 2 of The D'Amelio Show been set?

Season 1 of the "The D'Amelio Show" garnered an impressive number of viewers, but reviews tended to focus on concerns surrounding Charli and Dixie's well-being. According to LA Magazine — which called the show a "downer" — there's a certain unexpected sadness and darkness to the show, as it follows two young women whose lives have been completely taken over by social media and subsequent massive fame. 

We see Charli as she struggles to maintain a normal teenage life and Dixie as she deals with debilitating online hate. Another reviewer, per Vox, listed some of the notable — and eerie — comments that Charli made throughout the season regarding her mental health, including, "I feel like I've had a constant anxiety attack for the past four years," as well as, "Twenty years from now, this is gonna be the happiest time of my life."

Despite some of the mixed reviews, "The D'Amelio Show" has been predicted to return for a second season — though it hasn't been officially confirmed. Hulu announced Season 1 in December 2020, and it premiered nine months later. Therefore, if a second season does hit the small screen, fans could reasonably expect it sometime in mid to late 2022 (via Bustle).

The cast of Season 2 would likely include these stars

Season 2 would most likely involve the usual D'Amelio family members: Charli, Dixie, and parents Marc and Heidi. It would also likely address Charli's dating life, as she had been on and off with social media star and singer Chase Hudson, professionally known as Lil Huddy (via Stylecaster). Hudson has amassed an impressive 32.2 million followers on TikTok, which has brought him a massive 1.6 billion likes total. He has also released his debut album, "Teenage Heartbreak," which is said to address his previous girlfriends. Fans have speculated that many of the songs are specifically about his former relationship with Charli (via Billboard). 

Furthermore, we would expect a pretty regular appearance from Dixie's boyfriend, fellow content creator Noah Beck, as he made several appearances in Season 1 of "The D'Amelio Show" (via Seventeen). Beck has 30.5 million followers on TikTok as well as 1.6 million subscribers on YouTube. Some even call him one of the most well-known male content creators on TikTok (via GQ), a claim which can be largely attributed to his spot in the disbanded group of TikTok personalities, the "Sway House" (via People). 

Season 1 didn't shy away from featuring Marc and Heidi from time to time. Believe it or not, mama and papa D'Amelio have their own impressive following on TikTok, with Marc boasting a whopping 10.5 million followers and Heidi 9.5 million. They also run a parenting-themed podcast called "The Other D'Amelios" (via Bustle).

What content could we expect from Season 2 of The D'Amelio Show?

Season 2 would most likely follow Charli D'Amelio as she continues to grow her TikTok audience as well as a possible continuation of her ascent into the world of films; she's currently slated for a role in the upcoming animated movie, "StarDog and TurboCat," where she will voice a mouse called Tinker (via Seventeen).

As for Dixie, more "The D'Amelio Show" content would most likely follow her as she navigates her music career in L.A., which Season 1 focused on quite a bit. Regarding live performances, she told The Hollywood Reporter, "There's nothing planned yet. I've been saying that I have three pop-up shows coming but those aren't planned — I've just been telling people that and putting it out there and then it's going to happen," she explained. "But yes, I will be having some shows later this year."

Season 2 may continue from Season 1, showcasing the challenges of being a D'Amelio. Dixie recently told The New York Times regarding the first season, "I think people are going to be surprised about the maturity of the show. It's not like, 'Oh my God, watch us do TikToks all day.' It's very deep, it's very true, it shows our emotions, it's caught us in real time having breakdowns and not wanting to do social media anymore," she explained. And with Charli and Dixie's fame only increasing, it's hard to imagine that their struggles with life in the spotlight will become any easier to manage.
