“Mr. and Mrs. Smith” has been renewed for Season 2 at Amazon Prime Video.

However, sources say that Season 1 stars Donald Glover and Maya Erskine are not expected to return to star in Season 2. 

Glover is still credited as a co-creator and executive producer on the series alongside Francesca Sloane, who will return as showrunner. 

In addition, Glover recently announced that he will go on a world tour as Childish Gambino beginning in August through February 2025.

“We are excited to announce that a second season of our groundbreaking spy series, ‘Mr. and Mrs. Smith,’ is in the works for our global Prime Video customers,” said Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon MGM Studios. “The success of the first season is a testament to the brilliant creators Donald Glover and Francesa Sloane. We are proud to bring you another season filled with unforgettable journeys and new adventures.”

The announcement was made as part of Amazon’s first ever upfront presentation to advertisers in New York on Tuesday.

“Mr. and Mrs. Smith” is a reimagining of the 2005 film that starred Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. 

The series is produced by New Regency and Amazon MGM Studios.

Per the official series description: “In the first season of ‘Mr. & Mrs. Smith,’ two lonely strangers land jobs working for a mysterious spy agency that offers them a glorious life of espionage, wealth, world travels, and a dream brownstone in Manhattan. The catch? New identities in an arranged marriage as Mr. and Mrs. John and Jane Smith. Now hitched, John and Jane navigate a high-risk mission every week while also facing a new relationship milestone. Their complex cover story becomes even more complicated when they catch real feelings for each other. What’s riskier: espionage or marriage?”.

The reimagining received critical acclaim upon its release in February, with the first season holding a 90% critical approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
