Although it is not yet up on the press site, BET has announced the second season release date of The Quad TV show. The sophomore season will consist of ten hour-long episodes. The drama series, starring Anika Noni Rose, is set at the fictional Georgia A&M, one of the HBCUs (Historically Black Colleges and Universities). BET ordered the second season back in April of this year.
Reportedly, The Quad season two will premiere on BET on Tuesday, January 23, 2018. The first season centered on new college President Eva Fletcher (Rose), her administration, and the students. Look for Antawn “Big Boi” Patton Sr., RonReaco Lee, Sheryl Lee Ralph, Debbi Morgan, Jasmine Guy, and Ruben Santiago-Hudson to appear in the second season.
The Wrap reports:
The show’s second season will pick up in spring semester, with Georgia A&M’s survival as an independent, historically Black university hanging in a precarious balance as the driven Dr. Eva Fletcher (Rose) struggles to raise capital for the nearly bankrupt institution. If she fails, the school may be forced to join Georgia’s large, public and predominantly white university system in order to keep its doors open.
Rapper and producer Antwan “Big Boi” Patton Sr., RonReaco Lee (“Survivor’s Remorse,” “Let’s Get Together”), Sheryl Lee Ralph (“One Mississippi,” “Ray Donovan”) and Debbi Morgan (“Power,” “All My Children”) are all slated to appear in recurring guest roles this season, alongside Jasmine Guy (“A Different World,” “School Daze”).
Patton will play Lenny Jenkins, the over-zealous father of the latest high school quarterback phenomenon.
Lee will reprise his role as Southwestern Delta University’s executive band director and Cecil Diamond’s (Ruben Santiago-Hudson) chief rival, Clive Taylor. Ralph will guest star as Ula Pettiway, Georgia A&M faculty member Carlton Pettiway’s wife, and Morgan will play Dr. Helen Chambers.
