Fans will notice some surprise changes to the cast of the second season of Hulu’s Wu-Tang-inspired series.
Hip-hop fans have been treated to the origin story of the classic group Wu-Tang Clan on Hulu.The history of artists who became crossover stars in entertainment such as Method Man is something that enticed audiences for season 1 with actors Ashton Sanders, Shameik Moore, Dave East, and Joey Bada$$.
As the pandemic hit there was a standstill on when the series would continue and when it was announced that the RZA inspired series would return on on September 8 with Season 2 of Wu-Tang Clan American Saga. We saw the 1st season with the group becoming rap stars with their album debut in the finale of the Hulu debut season.
New additions to this season include Masta Killa and U God, who will be portrayed by JaQwan J. Kelly and Damani D. Sease, respectively. Furthermore, Mathematics, who famously designed the Wu-Tang Clan’s iconic logo, has been added as a new recurring character for Season 2, and Curtiss Cook Jr will play him on the show. However, the biggest surprises for Wu-Tang: An American Saga’s cast reveal have to deal with the absence of two actors.
In the show’s Instagram unveiling of all the Wu-Tang members this season, Caleb Castille’s character Cappadonna was noticeably absent from the line-up. He already played a small role in the first season, so fans who are hoping for him to have a larger presence in the second season may not need to hold their breath.
Furthermore, It was was revealed that Joey Bada$$ is no longer the actor for Inspectah Deck. Perhaps it’s due to his new role on 50 Cent’s Power Book III: Raising Kanan that the Badmon won’t be reprising his role as the legendary Wu-Tang member; regardless of the reason, the show has instead tapped Uyoata Udi for the role.
