Season 1 of “Reservation Dogs” proved how well the show could juggle comedic and dramatic elements, offering a poignant glimpse into what life is like on reservations. There’s already been a great deal of development on the show so far as Bear Smallhill (D’Pharaoh Woon-A-Tai) struggles with being the group’s de facto leader. At the same time, Elora (Devery Jacobs) considers joining another gang. Co-creator Sterlin Harjo couldn’t contain his excitement of continuing these characters’ stories, taking to Instagram to write, “Thanks for all the love.” In true Waititi fashion, he wrote on his own page, “Skoden biaaaa*ch!”
Devery Jacobs took time on her social media to exclaim the importance of telling Indigenous stories: “Niawenhkó:wa — thank you so much everyone for all the streams! Indigenous stories are necessary. Indigenous stories are valid. Indigenous stories are beautiful — and we are just scratching the surface!” Lane Factor, who plays Cheese on the series, got in on the celebration, stating, “SEASON 2!!! STOODIS.”
There’s no word yet on when we might expect Season 2 to drop, but fortunately, we still have a good portion of Season 1 to get through to hold us over. “Reservation Dogs” has been one of the most critically successful new series to release in 2021, currently holding a 100% rating amongst critics on Rotten Tomatoes. You can catch up with the low-key adventures of Bear, Elora, and everyone else making rez life work with FX on Hulu now.
