The new show is set for release on February 15th. Its current status is limited series, and it is presently unclear whether there will be a second season after the initial five-episode run. As per Netflix’s usual tact, it will likely wait to see whether the show is a success before it decides to open talks for a second instalment.

It also features a cameo from Rick Ross, who appears in the trailer. The clip, which runs at just over a minute long, sees a fictional Staples lying to his partner about his humdrum life, when actually getting caught up in a spate of crimes.
The official Netflix official synopsis for The Vince Staples Show explains: “Who’s Vince Staples? Well, that’s a tricky question. He’s kind of famous, but he’s not. He’s kind of rich, but he’s not. He’s also kind of a criminal. But he’s…not? Follow him on his daily adventures, where anything that can go wrong usually does.”
Staples’ show was co-created alongside Ian Edelman and Maurice Williams. As well as the Californian rapper, it co-stars Vanessa Bell Calloway, Andrea Ellsworth, Naté Jones, Arturo Castro, Scott MacArthur, Bryan Greenberg, and Myles Bullock.
