Belle Collective Season 2: Release Date, Cast And New Details

In 2010, media mogul and legendary talk show host Oprah Winfrey explained to her "Oprah Winfrey Show" team that "My vision for OWN is to create a network that inspires our viewers and makes them want to be who they are on their best day," according to E! Online. That vision from 11 years ago has certainly come to fruition. The OWN network continues to crank out hit shows including "Iyanla; Fix My Life," "Super Soul Sunday," and "Ready to Love." But can its new contender, "Belle Collective," hold its own?

In January of 2021, OWN launched "Belle Collective," a docuseries following the professional and personal lives of five influential Black women in Jackson, Mississippi. According to the Futon Critic, the successful entrepreneurs are determined to break barriers and southern stigmas as they work together to redevelop a once thriving, but now struggling, hub for black owned businesses.

"Belle Collective" highlights the city of Jackson, and Marie Hamilton-Abston, shared that it's a "humbling, exciting experience to be able to share with the world what Jackson has to offer" (via OWN Youtube). But will the world want more "Belle Collective?"

When will season 2 of Belle Collective be released?

The OWN network has yet to share a release date for season 2 of "Belle Collective," nor have they confirmed a cancellation (via Next Season TV). The lack of reporting by the OWN network could have to do with poor ratings, as Show Buzz Daily placed "Belle Collective" at 109 in its top 150 original cable telecasts list. Furthermore, the show received an average rating of five out of 10 by IMDb users, which is less than a new show would like to see. 

"Reesha on the Radio" of 107.3 KISS FM may have called the show a "hot mess," but ended her spiel with "Move over, Bravo TV! These women on Belle Collective are bringing the heat and the sauce that 'Real Housewives' franchises WISH they had." This sure sounds like a compliment and a win for the fab five ladies of "Belle Collective," but is it enough to get us a season 2?

Who will be in the cast of season 2?

We can only speculate that if there is a season 2 of "Belle Collective," the five women from season 1 will return. Included in that cast of inspiring women is one of the few black female dentists of Mississippi, Dr. Antoinette Liles, who runs her own dental practice and is going through some personal life challenges (via The Futon Critic). Entrepreneur Latrice Rogers, CEO of the successful hair extension company in the area, Goddess Lengths, should also be back along with self-made millionaire Marie Hamilton-Abston. Marie is the CEO of the Hamilton Davis Mental Health empire and mom to her son, Kari (via Meaww). 

We hope to again see on-air radio personality for Jackson's hip-hop and R&B station, Tambra Cherie, host of the most controversial radio show in the city, "The Relationship Hour." The show wouldn't be complete without CEO of the National Women's Brunch Organization, Lateshia Pearson, who has been bringing powerful women together for years through the non-profit organization, and shares the common goal of revitalizing Farish Street in Jackson, Mississippi.  

What will the plot be on season 2 of Belle Collective?

If there is a season 2 of "Belle Collective," we can hope to see more of the re-building of the iconic Farish street in Jackson, Mississippi as well as the ladies continued success in their own businesses.

Social issues would surely be a part of the show, as well as a focus on physical and emotional health, as some of the women have already shared their personal experiences regarding these topics. If the new season mimics season 1, we can expect some drama between the fab five belles, as well as a possible deepening of friendships. Surely there will be some romantic escapades and relationship drama, but we are most are most looking forward to watching these women further flourish.

Oprah Daily shares that "Belle Collective" is a show you will fall in love with "immediately" and after binge watching season 1 with these fabulous women on OWN TV (or the OWN app), you'll be craving a season 2 and beyond.
