‘David Makes Man’: Season 2 With New Actor Playing ‘Adult David’ Sets June Premiere (First Look Trailer)

David Makes Man - Adult David

*David will look a bit older when the Peabody Award-winning drama “David Makes Man” returns for its second season on June 22nd at 9p ET/PT on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network.

The lead character is now in his 30s (now played by Kwame Patterson, “Snowfall,” “The Wire”), and a rising businessman facing an opportunity that will change him and his community forever. The mounting pressure forces David to choose between the instincts that helped him survive or finding a new way to truly live. Young David, played by Akili McDowell, will still be featured in flashbacks.

Production returned to Orlando, Florida and commenced filming amid the pandemic in October 2020.

Watch the Season Two first look trailer below:
