Naomi season 1 has wrapped after 13 episodes. We break down what is in store for the superhero show's season 2, including Naomi's renewal status.

Warning: Spoilers ahead for Naomi season 1. 

Naomi wrapped season 1 after 13 episodes — here is what to know about season 2, including which characters could return. Naomi is currently one of the last Arrowverse series standing following the cancellations of Legends and Tomorrow and Batwoman. The freshman show was a newcomer to The CW after it got a series order in 2021 and, similar to Stargirl, focused on a teenage girl who was coming into her power and identity.

Naomi McDuffie has seen her fair share of ups and downs throughout Naomi season 1. After realizing she had powers and came from another planet — Earth-29 – in the multiverse, she set out to discover more about her origins and why so many other aliens are after her. What made Naomi stand out in season 1 is that the title character didn’t immediately take up her mantle as a superhero. It was more of a slow-burn, whereas series like The Flash and Supergirl typically centered on their respective heroes saving people in some kind of way, Naomi’s journey was lengthier as she learned more about herself and her powers more gradually.

Naomi’s season 1 finale saw the teen hero choosing her own destiny after the truth of her identity was hidden from her for the majority of the season. With season 1 over, here’s what the future holds for Naomi season 2, including the series’ renewal status and predicted release date.

Will Naomi Season 2 Happen? Renewal Status Explained

Naomi season 2 hasn’t been officially confirmed. Of the five superhero series that remained on The CW, Naomi was the only show that has yet to be given a green light for the 2022-23 season. According to a Deadline report, two of four superhero series could move forward, including Gotham Knights, a new DC Comics adaptation that received a pilot order. With Legends of Tomorrow and Batwoman both having been canceled, Naomi’s chances for renewal are a bit higher now than before.

Naomi Season 2 Cast: Which Characters Can Return?

Naomi season 2 will certainly see Kaci Walfall returning as the titular superhero, alongside Mary-Charles Jones as Naomi’s best friend Annabelle, Alexander Wraith as Dee, Mouzam Makkar as Naomi’s adopted mom Jennifer McDuffie, and Daniel Puig as Nathan. The remainder of the show’s main cast will more than likely return as well. Any character who remained alive through the season 1 finale and has played a crucial enough role in Naomi’s life should guarantee their return in Naomi season 2.

Naomi Season 2 Story Details: What To Expect

The majority of Naomi season 1 was about her self-discovery. After realizing her status as an alien who plays an important role on her birth world of Earth-29, much of Naomi’s time is spent learning about her origins and fighting Brutus, one of the 29 with powers who has hunted her since she was born. Nearing the end of season 1, Naomi was finally starting to use her powers to fight aggressors and was able to solve predicaments on her own without needing too much help from her vast support team, which included Dee, Zumbado, and her friends.

In season 2, Naomi’s powers will likely continue to grow and audiences will get to see her be more confident wielding her abilities and using them to help people. There is still enough mystery to fuel the sophomore season as the titular hero really comes into her own. The multiverse is vast and Naomi has only scratched the surface regarding what it holds. With some of the questions from season 1 answered, Naomi season 2 could delve more into the details of what was revealed to deepen the story and the dynamics Naomi has built with other characters throughout season 1.

Naomi Season 2 Release Date Prediction

Naomi season 1 debuted at midseason on January 11, 2022. If the series is picked up for season 2, it will likely premiere its sophomore season in early or mid-January 2023. Production turnaround is faster on network television, so if Naomi season 2 begins filming in the summer of 2022, most or all of the episodes should be done before the season premieres in winter 2023. Keeping the show on The CW’s midseason schedule makes sense because it only has 13 episodes, with season 2 expected to receive the same episode order.
