Peacock’s record-setting drama series Bel-Air announces Season 2 cameo from Grammy-nominated recording artist Saweetie, along with recurring cast Brooklyn McLinn (Cloak & Dagger, Blackish), Jazlyn Martin (This Is Us, All American: Homecoming) and Riele Downs (Darby and The Dead, Henry Danger).
NEW RECURRING CAST CHARACTERS/DESCRIPTIONS:
Saweetie will make an appearance as herself in the first episode of the season.
Brooklyn McLinn will play Doc Hightower, a busy and driven basketball recruiter and AAU Coach who is impressed by Will’s game at Bel-Air Academy.
Jazlyn Martin will play Jackie. Her South L.A. street smarts put Will’s Philly swagger to the test when they are introduced to each other at a Venice basketball tournament.
Riele Downs will play Yazmin, the president of the Black Student Union at Bel-Air Academy.
While their paths have not previously crossed at school, Yazmin finds herself impressed by Carlton’s contributions to the club.
The upcoming season of Bel-Air picks up with Will at a crossroads as a new figure comes into his life who challenges what he’s learned in Bel-Air and competes for control of his influence. He juggles this while navigating his home life with the Banks family and trying to rebuild the trust that was broken at the end of last season. We’ll see Will and Carlton’s brotherhood start to evolve as they grow closer, but still challenge each other about their differences. We’ll also see Hilary evolve as she becomes more of a boss in her influencer world and how that spills over into her relationship with Jazz, and also highlight the relatable struggles around Viv and Phil balancing marriage and family while trying to forge their career paths and reconnect to the things that are important to them.
Bel-Air season 2 premieres on Peacock on February 23 with new episodes streaming Thursdays.
