Shortly before its release, The Vince Staples Show was changed in Netflix’s marketing to be labeled a limited series. Limited series means that it’s one-and-done. That won’t be the case with this Netflix comedy, which was just confirmed to return for a season 2. 

Inspired by Staples’s own life and set in Long Beach, California, the scripted comedy series dropped all five of its episodes onto Netflix on February 15th, 2024.

In an exclusive statement granted from Netflix to Netflix TUDUM, Vince said on the renewal, “The Vince Staples Show is back! The people have spoken and the most riveting, captivating, and polarizing show on Netflix is returning for season 2. Get ready for hijinks that only a mother can love. Thank you, Netflix!”

Leading up to the renewal on May 30th, there had been several hints that it might return. A Rolling Stone interview with Staples on May 23rd seemed to imply more could be on the way, with the singer/actor telling the outlet, “I was honestly surprised by the way that it was received.” RollingStone followed that up with, “It’s up in the air whether the show will be renewed for Season Two, but the response to Season One bodes well for a sequel.”

Further speculation came in a follow-up by a Tweet/Post on Twitter/X on May 29th saying:

Of course, this renewal raises questions about what a limited series is. If there was always an intention of this show potentially coming back, why call it a limited series? Could it have been to have less scrutiny on its viewership numbers? We’ll never know.

How well did The Vince Staples Show perform on Netflix?

In his RollingStone interview, Staples described the show as “niche,” and that would appear to be the case.

The show failed to enter the global top 10s following its initial release, suggesting that it had under 1.7 million views for its opening week and less than 2.1 million in the week following that.

FlixPatrol numbers suggest the show entered the daily top 10s in a dozen countries in total but only stuck around for around a week.

  • Guadeloupe – 15 days
  • Bahamas – 14 days
  • Martinique – 14 days
  • United States – 8 days
  • Canada – 6 days
  • Kenya – 6 days
  • Nigeria – 6 days
  • Reunion – 6 days
  • South Africa – 6 days
  • Trinidad and Tobago – 4 days
  • Jamaica – 3 days
  • Australia – 2 days

Of course, viewership isn’t the only thing considered with a comedy show like this. The show certainly generated buzz with critics, carrying a 94% on RottenTomatoes. You’d have thought it’d also be considered for awards attention, but it’s not currently featured on Netflix’s FYC campaign site as of the time of writing.
