Wayne first aired on YouTube Premium in 2019. And it was an instant success claiming tens of millions of views on the streaming service. Unfortunately, YouTube cut back investments on original programming crushing the viewers’ dream of a season 2. Many viewers may believe that Wayne season 2 is canceled. But, as Wayne’s Co-writer Rhett Reese said on his Twitter, “Wayne wasn’t canceled, per se. Rather, its network was canceled.”
Luckily for the fans of Wayne, the series arrived on Amazon Prime in November 2020. Even though Wayne has not been officially renewed yet, there is a good possibility that Wayne season 2 will be released if there is a good response on Amazon Prime.
