Netflix announced that the AFI Awards nominated and Gotham Award winning Mo will be renewed for a second season, bringing Mo Najjar’s journey for asylum to a conclusion.
Co-creator, executive producer, and lead actor Mo Amer expressed gratitude for the opportunity to tell this relatable tale of adversity that many around the world can identify with.
“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,” Amer said.
Since its debut on August 24, 2022, the show has received critical acclaim with a Gotham Award for Breakthrough Television Under 40 Minutes and a nomination for the 2023 Independent Spirit Awards in the Best Lead Performance in a New Scripted Series category.
Season 1 Synopsis:
Mo Najjar straddles the line between two cultures, three languages and a ton of bullshit as a Palestinian refugee living one step away from obtaining asylum in the U.S. His family — including his resilient mother and hilariously unfiltered brother — flee to Houston, Texas.
Mo deftly adapts to his new world, but it’s tough to get ahead when you’re tied up in red tape.
The heartfelt comedy is created and executive produced by comedians Mo Amer (The Vagabond, Black Adam) and Ramy Youssef (Ramy, Mr. Robot).
Season 1 is executive produced by A24, Harris Danow (Dead to Me, Daisy Jones & The Six), Luvh Rakhe (Dave, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia) and series Director Solvan “Slick” Naim (It’s Bruno!, Snowfall).
