Reservation Dogs is a comedy-drama television series created by Sterlin Harjo and Taika Waititi for FX Productions. It is a notable first in that it features all Indigenous writers and directors, along with an almost entirely Indigenous North American cast and production team. It is also the first series to be shot entirely in Oklahoma.
The series premiered on FX on Hulu on August 9, 2021 (International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples).
At the end of “Reservation Dogs” Season 1, Elora, Bear, Cheese, and Willie Jack are at a crossroads. Willie Jack confesses she doesn’t want to go to California after all, which causes the other group members to argue about their plans — especially Elora and Bear. Eventually, Elora decides to head to California with Jackie (Elva Guerra) instead, aka the leader of their group’s rival gang, which will cause a bigger rift between the Rez Dogs in Season 2.
In early September, “Reservation Dogs” was renewed for a second season, and it’s set to premiere sometime in 2022.
