2nd Generation Wayans is a television sitcom that premiered on BET in January 2013. It was created by Craig Wayans and Damien Dante Wayans, who were both part of the famous Wayans' family, and it follows the lives of four young adults as they navigate their careers, relationships, and family ties in Hollywood. The show aired for one season with 10 episodes.

The main character of the show is Damien Jr. Wayans, who played himself in the series. Damien Jr. is a struggling actor trying to make a name for himself in the entertainment industry, which seems to be challenging given his famous last name. He shares a house with his cousin, Craig, who's also an actor, and his two best friends, George Gore II and Tatyana Ali. George is an aspiring director who recently graduated from film school, while Tatyana is an up-and-coming publicist.

Each episode revolves around the group's daily struggles, as well as their constant attempts to make it in Hollywood. The show tackles common Hollywood tropes, such as auditioning, networking, and dealing with rejection. The humor is often derived from the group's interactions with one another, as they try to balance their personal and professional lives while living together. The show is filled with witty one-liners, comical situations, and an overall sense of camaraderie between the characters.

Aside from their careers, the characters have their own individual storylines that contribute to the show's overall narrative. For instance, Craig is a single father trying to balance his acting career with raising his daughter, Maya. Maya is written as a precocious young girl, who often provides comedic relief to the show's more serious moments. George, on the other hand, struggles with his love life, as he tries to woo Tatyana, who's dating another man.

The show also features famous guest stars, such as Marlon Wayans, who plays himself, and Faizon Love who plays George's uncle on the show. With its strong focus on camaraderie, the show explores how important it is to have a solid support system when pursuing a career in Hollywood. The characters often lean on each other for emotional support when they face trials and tribulations. Their relationships provide a relatable and realistic representation of how young adults tackle their careers and friendships.

Furthermore, the show also offers a glimpse into the Wayans family dynamic. The Wayans family is a famous family in Hollywood, with members like Keenen Ivory Wayans, Damon Wayans, and Shawn Wayans achieving success in the entertainment industry. This show offers an opportunity for the audience to see how the next generation of Wayanses navigates the industry and continues the legacy of their family's comedic talent.

Overall, 2nd Generation Wayans is a fun and entertaining show that offers a fresh take on the Hollywood and sitcom genres. With a talented cast, witty writing, and relatable storylines, the show is a must-watch for anyone looking for a good laugh and an inside look at the enthralling world of Hollywood. While the show only lasted one season, it left a lasting impression on its audience and continues to be a fan favorite for those who discovered it during its initial run.
