What is David Makes Man about?
David (Kwame Patterson, “Snowfall,” “The Wire”), a rising businessman in his 30s, faces an opportunity that will transform him and his town forever in Season 2 of the Peabody Award-winning series produced by Warner Bros. Television. The increasing stress leads David to make a decision between relying on his survival instincts or discovering a new way to live.
Written by “Moonlight” Oscar winner and Emmy nominee Tarell Alvin McCraney, “David Makes Man” is a dramatic serial. This poetic coming-of-age drama takes place in South Florida, and it follows David, an adolescent genius who lives in the projects yet goes to a magnet school for bright students. David, portrayed by newcomer Akili McDowell, moves between the streets, where he was reared, and the classroom, where he has a chance to escape poverty. This OWN original series explores themes of race and identity and shows how emotionally taxing it is for him to maintain this juggling act.
In season two, David (Kwame Patterson, “Snowfall,” “The Wire”), now in his 30s, is a successful businessman in the midst of a life-altering chance for himself and his neighborhood. The increasing stress leads David to make a decision between relying on his survival instincts or discovering a new way to live.

What to expect from David Makes Man Season 3?
In David Makes Man, we follow a young guy called David as he navigates life in the slums of a big metropolis. He worries about his mother’s job security because of his best friend’s death. In his forties, Kwame returns as a successful businessman. With the opportunity to have a positive impact on his community and the people that live in it.
There was a time jump in the second season. After that, we saw David as an adult attempting to make sense of his surroundings while simultaneously confronting old hurts. After being apart for some time, David tracked out his old buddy Seren. At the conclusion of the second season, David told his niece Trenise that his door was always open if she ever wanted to get away from home. Meanwhile, David felt liberated after a long time when he quit his job after an open conversation with Gloria.
David Makes Man Season 3 will pick up where Season 2 left off with the show’s plot. In the next season, David may go on a journey of self-improvement and personal growth. We’ll also be watching to see how things go with JG, Trisha, and Trenise. The second half of the season brings a lot of turmoil to their family dynamic.
David Makes Man Season 3 Release Date
The second season of ‘David Makes Man’ debuted on OWN on June 22, 2021, and it ended on August 24, 2021. There are 10 episodes in the second season, and they each clock in at about 43 minutes. Regarding the third season, here is what we know so far: OWN has not yet made a statement confirming the renewal or cancellation of the series. Even though the show’s ratings have been going down, it may come back with a new season. The streaming rights to the series were purchased by HBO Max in June 2020, and the drama premiered on the service in July 2020.
The second season got picked up in December of 2019, thus it will return in 2020. The pandemic was perhaps a factor in the delay, although it is no longer a major concern. We may have to wait a long before hearing about the renewal of the prospective third season, given that it took OWN around two months to officially hand over the order for the second run. ‘David Makes Man’ season 3 would premiere in the second or third quarter of 2023 if a third season order was given before the end of the year in 2021.
David Makes Man Season 3 Trailer
The trailer for season three has not yet been released, and it seems that this may take some time. While we wait, you may catch up on the previous seasons.
