Here’s a Season 2 synopsis per Peacock: 

“Season 2 of We Are Lady Parts sees the band return with a renewed artistic mission after the high of their first UK tour, only to find a rival band threatens their delicate status quo. As the reality of chasing success sets in, Lady Parts embark on recording their first album, juggling personal ambitions and deciding whether ‘making it big’ is really what they wanted.”

More on Season 2

Nida Manzoor, the show’s creator, writer, executive producer and director, had this to say regarding the upcoming installment:

“…Coming to season two, I was galvanised. The characters, the world, the tone – it was all there, established, and ready to go. Now, it was time to turn things up to 11. I wanted to go bolder, sillier, darker and deeper and that is exactly what we strived to do. In season two, we explore the interior lives of each of the women in more depth. Each of them facing new, existential challenges with all the silliness, pratfalls and banter of season one.

The music is bigger, too — more wild original tunes (penned by me and my siblings) and dare I say it, even better covers. The season overall asks the question of success. What is success? For a punk band — is fame, stadium shows and major record deals the answer? I wanted to explore the uncomfortable tension between art and commerce and ask how much compromise is too much. I’m really proud of what we achieved, and can’t wait to share it with old fans and new.”

I’m excited to return to this ballsy, irreverent and endearing world. This show is unadulterated punk with a smattering of heart. I’m also tickled to get more music. Bring it on.
