Fans of the Netflix comedy Mo can rejoice to learn that the critically acclaimed series currently holding a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes has been renewed for a second season.
However, Mohammed Amer, the titular character and creator of the show announced this will be the show's final season.
I’m thankful to continue to tell a universal story of struggle that relates to so many refugees and millions of under-represented humans trying to be seen around the globe and to be able to bring the people who loved and rooted for Mo Najjar along for the ride as we close this chapter of his story.
Netflix has enjoyed great success with the show. Mo centers on Palestinian immigrant Mo Najjar, who lives on the cusp of being granted asylum in the United States while juggling three languages, two cultures, and a ton of bullsh*t, according to the Netflix synopsis. His family, which includes his resilient mother and hilarious brother flees to Houston, Texas. Mo must therefore skillfully adjust to his new environment, but when you're bogged down by bureaucracy, it's difficult to advance in life.
The show won a Gotham Award for Outstanding Breakthrough Television Under 40 Minutes, and Amer was nominated for a 2023 Independent Spirit Award for Best Lead Performance in a New Scripted Series.
Speaking of renewals over at Netflix, the streaming giant finally confirmed the second season of the Addams Family spin-off, Wednesday.
