The official synopsis for the second season is as follows:
Struggling with newfound success this season, against a backdrop of black art and culture, Nola must decide if she will remain true to her creative ideals or give in to the corporate world. Her journey of self-discovery helps transform the lives of those around her, including friend and sometimes lover Mars Blackmon, who sets out to pursue his true passion of music as well as her inner circle of Opal, Greer Childs, Jamie Overstreet, Clorinda Bradford, Shemekka Epps and Winnie Win. Their journey expands to new destinations this season beyond their home base of Fort Greene, the vibrant Brooklyn enclave that continues to evolve and change as gentrification remakes the neighbourhood.
The series was based on Spike Lee’s 1986 film of the same name and outlets such as Deadline and TVLine are reporting that Spike Lee will be shopping the series to other broadcasters and platforms.
Ted Sarandos, Chief Content Officer at Netflix, released a statement saying:
Spike Lee is one of the greatest filmmakers of all time and we’re thrilled he brought the series She’s Gotta Have It (1986, based on his first feature film) to Netflix. While this is our last season, we’re very proud that it will be on our service for years to come, and excited to be working with Spike on his upcoming Netflix film Da 5 Bloods.
