The brand new season of Ramy will also see two-time Oscar winner Mahershala Ali join the cast.
Joining the comedian Ramy Youssef, who received his first ever Golden Globe Award last year for his lead performance in the hit series, is two-time Academy Award winner, Mahershala Ali. Ali is the star of numerous films and television series such as Green Book, Moonlight, House of Cards and the upcoming Marvel movie Blade.
The critically-acclaimed series offers an insightful and hilarious glimpse into the life of a first generation Egyptian-American Muslim living in a politically-divided New Jersey neighbourhood. Throughout the dramedy, Ramy finds himself on a spiritual journey to understand what it means to be a good person – which is no small task when you're being pulled between traditional Muslim teachings which state that life is a constant test, friends who think life is full of endless possibilities, and a God who's always watching.
In Ramy season two, Mahershala Ali will be playing a Sheikh who mentors Ramy on his spiritual path. Other cast members in the second season include Amr Waked, Mohammed Amer, Hiam Abbass, Dave Merheje, Stephen Way, May Calamawy, Rosaline Elbay and Shadi Alfons, who will all reprise their original roles.
