The reality competition series Legendary has been renewed by HBO Max for a second season.
MC Dashaun Wesley is set to return for the new season, along with judges Leiomy Maldonado, Jameela Jamil, Law Roach and Megan Thee Stallion. While the first season was centered in New York City, the second will be set in Los Angeles. The final two episodes of season one are now available to stream on HBO Max.
From Scout Productions, Legendary highlights modern-day ball culture, with “Houses” battling it out in fashion and dance challenges, including vogueing, for the chance to win the legendary trophy and a cash prize. The series features eight voguing houses, each comprised of five performers and a leader—the house “parent.” The teams participate in a competition that documents a themed ball every episode, giving full access to the behind-the-scenes action.
Kevin Reilly, chief content officer at HBO Max and president of TNT, TBS and truTV, said: “Legendary was an HBO Max, day one premiere. We knew we had something special and are proud that critics and audiences alike have embraced the series. Bringing this incredible world back for a second season furthers our commitment to high quality, compelling storytelling.”
Sarah Aubrey, head of original content at HBO Max, said: “Season one was an inspirational and educational journey into the exuberant world of ballroom. This series is truly sensational and we are humbled by the backstories of the contestants that make up the heart of the show, our illustrious MC Dashaun and judges panel, and the fantastic team at Scout.”
Rob Eric, Scout Productions’ chief creative officer and executive producer, said: “Scout is thrilled and honored that our friends at HBO MAX have picked up Legendary for a second season. We’re also excited to have our amazing judges and Legendary MC Dashaun Wesley returning to the stage for season 2. Our goal is to continue showcasing the exuberant and dynamic world of ballroom through the omnicultural stories of its most talented houses.”
