And on the third day, Black Jesus arose with its season two trailer

Much like the historical Jesus, season one of Black Jesus found Compton’s lord and savior on the wrong side of the law. This season finds Jesus emerging from incarceration with a vision from his dad; specifically, God wants to see his son and friends getting into a business that’s more legit (or maybe he just wants to get them out of the THC-spaghetti sauce business).


Armed with a purpose, we see Jesus striving to walk the righteous path, which apparently involves a combination mobile church/taco truck/massage parlor. Predictably, Jesus’ good intentions don’t seem to go over smoothly. Meanwhile, John Witherspoon fans can rejoice that he’s also returned as the enjoyably unpleasant Lloyd, seen here humping a gas oven as a dismayed Charlie Murphy looks on. While we don’t know if Jesus will succeed in shepherding his flock to less felonious pastures (glimpses of well-armed followers don’t bode well), we do learn one critical detail: the Son of Man does not have x-ray vision.

Black Jesus returns to our earthly plane September 18 on Adult Swim.
