Season two of BET+’s fan favorite original comedy Bigger is returning for ten new episodes, with all episodes available to stream at launch. Get ready for an edgier, funnier, smarter, BIGGER season!

Created by Felischa Marye, the story continues about the close-knit group of 30-somethings navigating love, friendships and career ambitions. Season two catches up three months after the big arrest. Is the gang still thriving or frontin’?

Chicago native Felischa Marye, a graduate of the MFA screenwriting program at UCLA, transitioned into the film industry stry after a successful career in public relations in the Windy City. While still in film school, she sold her first comedy pilot to HBO. She most recently created and produced the raunchy friends comedy series Bigger, set in Atlanta, with Will Packer producing. Felischa also wrote on two seasons of the hit Netflix series 13 Reasons Why.

Produced by Will Packer Media, season two of “Bigger” is executive produced by Will Packer and Felischa Marye, who also serves as series showrunner. Devon Shepard, season one showrunner, serves as writer/consulting producer in the series’ sophomore season.
