Since the Rap Sh!t season 2 delayed release, fans are speculating what other films or series are possibly getting delayed in near time due to the writer’s strike. The WAG and SAG-AFTRA strike has already impacted the release dates of Marvel Phase 5 and Phase 6 films, and it was anticipated that Rap Sh!t season 2 might also suffer the consequences of the ongoing strike.
While delaying Marvel’s Phase 5 and Phase 6 movies was a good take for the Marvel movies, delaying Rap Sh!t might infuriate the fans to some extent. The fans have to wait till November 9th to witness their favourite rap show.
The past days encountered the strikes taking an active turn. The makers have settled to premiere Rap Sh!t season 2 with two episodes, followed by the weekly release of upcoming episodes until the season’s finale on December 21st, 2023. There are 8 episodes, and each episode is estimated to be 31-35 minutes, the same as the last season.
The long gap between the previous and new release of Rap Sh!t season 2 will allow the actors and makers to promote the second season without facing the consequences of the strike.
