What Actually is “Woke”?

Woke is a Comedy drama series created by Keith Knight and Marshall Todd focusing on the life of Keef, a visual artist, and creator of a fictional Toast and Butter played by Lamorne Morris. One Day after being subjected to some racial violence, his life changes completely. Our protagonist Keef gets badly traumatized and finds out that he can communicate with inanimate objects.

Why Only 2 Seasons?:

After Deadline reported about the cancellation of the series after 2 seasons, it was shocking for the audiences as it was going pretty well, and as such nobody was having many problems around it.

Although Deadline failed to give any reason for its cancellation, a few reasons starting from some flawed characters to bad direction can be estimated. Even Vanity Fair quoted that the Lamorne Morris starrer Woke is a Comedy for no one:

“Despite a winning cast and a premise that sounds great on paper, Hulu’s Woke, debuting September 9, ends up being a mostly unsatisfying eight-episode investment.”

Vanity Fair further added:

“Woke’s other problem is that the first season just takes too long to say anything interesting”
