Fresh on the heels of its acclaimed first season, the trailer for FX's Reservation Dogs Season 2 has been revealed. The show follows a teenage gang in rural Oklahoma who call themselves the Reservation Dogs. In the wake of their best friend's death, they resort to a habit of petty crime to carry out his dream of reestablishing the group in California. The effort to secure the money for their trip finds the group hijacking a potato chip truck and negotiating with meth heads, among a slew of other whacky pursuits. Behind the scenes, the dramedy series features a nearly all-Indigenous American cast and a team of entirely Indigenous writers and directors.SCREENRANT VIDEO OF THE DAY
A trailer for Reservation Dogs season 2 (via FX) picks up right where the first season left off. Elora (Devery Jacobs) is finally driving to California with Jackie (Elva Guerra), the only one willing to make the trip with her. At the same time, the other Reservation Dogs grapple with life back on the reservation. Will & Grace star Megan Mullally makes an appearance in the teaser as a woman Elora encounters on the road. After Elora confirms she is running away from home, Mullally's character replies, "Damn, I'm jealous."

The trailer indicates that Reservation Dogs season 2 will continue to capitalize on the spiky humor and offbeat wackiness that made the first season a breakout success. However, the humor is balanced with plenty of genuine emotion. For example, in one scene, Bear (D'Pharaoh Miskwaatez McKay Woon-A-Tai) is asked, "You think you're the only kid on the rez growing up without a dad?" to which he only responds with a pensive look at the ground. While he's not included in the clip, comedian Marc Maron will also have a role in the new season of Reservation Dogs, which premieres on August 3 on Hulu.
