In April 2021, the world was introduced to a brand new hilarious comedy series. And now, over a year later, the trailer for the highly anticipated second season is officially here. Here's what fans can expect to see in the upcoming episodes of Rutherford Falls.
The comedy sitcom follows two best friends named Nathan Rutherford (Ed Helms) and Reagan Wells (Jana Schmieding), who have found themselves at a point where an important decision needs to be made. Things take a turn in their friendship after the mayor of their small fictional town set in New York makes the decision to get rid of a statue of Nathan's relative. While Nathan wants to do everything in his power to make sure the landmark stays, his pal needs to decide whether her loyalty lies with her childhood BFF or the people of her town, the Minishonka Nation. So what exactly can we look forward to seeing in season 2?
Based on the teaser, it looks like there have been some big changes happening in the small town. Together, Nathan and Reagan will be working together to help each other deal with relationship and work issues and, of course, the obstacles that occur in their town itself. Especially ones dealing with the Native American reservation that borders the town of Rutherford Falls. The series has been applauded for its Native representation (both on and off the screen). Not only does Indigenous actor Michael Greyeyes portray the Tribal Casino C.E.O., Terry Thomas, but there are 5 Indigenous writers on the show, including Teller Ornelas, Bobby Wilson, Tai Leclaire, Jana Schmieding, and Tazbah Chavez. At the moment, the show holds a 94% Certified Fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
One of the creators, Sierra Teller Ornelas, said in a statement, "Ed Helms, Mike Schur, and I had an absolute blast making a show that's heartfelt, laugh-out-loud funny, and depicts Native Americans in ways you never see on television. Also, a lot of people get punched/kicked in the face. We hope you enjoy Season 2." The full eight episodes will finally be dropped on June 16th.
