News Brief

The Second Season of 'Chewing Gum' Is Coming to Netflix Very Soon

Season 2 of Michaela Coel's comedy series "Chewing Gum," will be available on Netflix, outside of the U.K., starting April 4.

The wait is over—well it will be on April 4 when the second season of one of our favorite shows, Chewing Gum, is released on Netflix!


The coming of age show, written by the brilliant Michaela Coel, follows Tracey (played by Coel) as she navigates life on her colorful London estate. The first season saw Tracey trying desperately to escape the clutches of her overbearing, Pentecostal mom and lose her virginity.

It looks like we can only expect more of Tracey's hilarious shenanigans in Season 2, and that's certainly something to look forward to.

No one should be missing out on this show. If you are, catch the first season right now on Netflix.

While you wait for the new season of Chewing Gum to drop, revisit our piece on what to expect from season 2
