Wiz Khalifa, Rashida Jones and Joy Osmanski have been upped to series regulars for Season 2 of Fox’s “Duncanville,” which was co-created by Amy Poehler.
Rapper Wiz Khalifa plays Mr. Mitch, who is a favorite among students. Mr. Mitch is “the cool, universally loved teacher, guidance counselor, and occasional gym coach and school nurse,” per Fox’s description.
Jones, who played Poehler’s on-screen best friend on NBC’s “Parks and Recreation,” plays Mia on “Duncanville.” Mia is Duncan’s on-again, off-again crush, per Fox. She’s equal parts charming and woke — an activist who believes in feminism and individualism.
Osmanski plays Jing, Duncan’s adopted younger sister who idolizes and has a massive crush on her older brother, according to the Fox character description.
“Duncanville” is created by Mike & Julie Scully and Poehler. Season 2 is currently in production and slated to premiere in 2021.
