BET has released the first look for season two of Lena Waithe and Halle Berry’s comedy series, Boomerang.

The series, based on the 1992 American rom-com starring Berry, Robin Givens and Eddie Murphy, will continue to follow the lives of Jacqueline Boyer’s son, Bryson (Tequan Richmond) and Marcus and Angela Graham’s daughter, Simone (Tetona Jackson) as they attempt to emerge from their parents’ shadows and make a legacy of their own, according to the logline.

This season is helmed exclusively by women of color, including Dime Davis (A Black Lady Sketch Show, The Chi, Boomerang S1) and Angeli Millan (The Cleveland Show, Us and Them, The Muppets) who serve as co-showrunners. Davis will also serve as director for half of the season with Tiffany Johnson (Dear White People, Black Monday, and Twenties) and first-time director Katrelle N. Kindred each directing two episodes.

Guest stars include Kim Wayans, Jaleel White, Walter Emanuel Jones, Nicole Williams, Cameron J. Ross, Elle Lorraine, and Zoelle Griggs.

“This season, we really wanted to go bigger and bolder,” Davis said. “Keeping everything we loved from the first season and dumping the rest, we were able to find a unique approach to the storytelling in season two. We were given the freedom to make Boomerang our own, and Angeli and I ran with that.”

Season two of Boomerang premieres Wednesday, March 11 at 10:30 p.m. Check out the key art below:
