Art and activism collide when you watch Woke season 2 online. The Hulu comedy returns with Lamorne Morris as cartoonist Keef Knight, who has become a rising star activist for his comic about police brutality. But with great power comes great responsibility — and Keef discovers that being an influencer with a big following is trickier than he imagined.

Woke follows Keef, the creator of the comic Toast and Butter. He's a Black cartoonist who's close to breaking out in a big way. After a traumatic encounter with the police, a shaken Keef starts seeing and hearing inanimate objects talking to him. 

Outraged and angry, Keef draws a cartoon about his experience, which lands him in legal trouble with the police. When he doesn't back down, standing up for himself instead, Keef learns he's been anointed by the media as the leader of a movement. 

Now, he and his friends grapple with whether they can bring about real change, or if activism is just another business that's all about the dollars. Keef seeks to navigate his newfound celebrity while maintaining his beliefs and goals. Oh, and he can still hear things talk.

Woke season 2 trailer

The trailer for Woke season 2 starts with an uncomfortable Keef getting attention from two white strangers on the bus. One calls himself an "ally" and says he still posts black squares to Instagram every week. The other informs Keef that he is not just an artist and activist, but an "art-ivist." OK, honey.

Woke season 2 cast

Lamorne Morris leads the cast of Woke season 2 as Keef Knight, a Black cartoonist living in San Francisco. 

He's joined by:

  • T. Murph as Clovis, Keef's best friend and roommate
