HOLLYWOOD, Calif.--Jan. 28, 2022--Nickelodeon announced today that it has greenlit a 13-episode second season of its hit live-action buddy comedy That Girl Lay Lay.

Season one of That Girl Lay Lay shattered records this Fall with premieres delivering double digit gains on Thursday nights and consistent #1 rankings in the time slot across all TV among K6-11.

“I’m so excited to continue this journey with Lay Lay, Nickelodeon and all the talented actors, writers and crew that make this show the hit that it is,” said creator and showrunner David A. Arnold. “Stay tuned because we have so much more fun coming!”

“I couldn’t be more proud of the show that we were able to create with David A.

From BCK Online:


That Girl Lay Lay is continually making boss moves. That talented teen has her own show on Nickelodeon, a first-of-its kind deal with the entertainment giant, a phenomenal music career, and much much more. In an exclusive interview with BCKOnline, That Girl Lay Lay dishes about all that she has going on and what is to come.

Check out what she had to say below!

1. Congratulations on the renewal of your show, That Girl Lay Lay. What can fans expect from Season 2?

Thank you, thank you! Fans can expect a lot of more fun stuff and drama going on because there is never a dull or boring day when Lay Lay is around! LOL

2. You got your start as a rapper, now you are a multi-faceted entertainer. How important is it to diversify your talents in the entertainment industry?

Yes, I am a multi-faceted entertainer and it’s very important to diversify my talents in the entertainment industry. I like to show people everything I can do and show new talents most people didn’t know I had. Not only can I rap, but I can act, dance and cook!

3. What is the one thing that you want to add and perfect in your ever-growing repertoire of skills?

One thing I want to add to my repertoire of skills is learning how to do nails, hair, lashes, facials, etc. Basically, I wanna open up a shop that offers all of that plus more, so when I turn 16, I’m heading to cosmetology school.

4. Congratulations on your 53rd NAACP Image Awards nomination! What does this honor mean to you?

Thank you so much! This honor means everything to me. I am so thankful and grateful for it. I work so hard and to see it paying off just makes me so happy and keeps me going. I also manifested this honor. I told the universe on New Year’s that coming up in 2022, I wanna be nominated for some awards.

5. In addition to all that you have going on, what can we expect next from you?

In addition to all that, yes, I have so much more coming up. I have a doll, microphone and patch maker in stores right now, and soon there will be even more! I have some more music coming out. I haven’t done music in a while because I’ve been doing my acting thing, but trust me, the music is coming! Season 2 for That Girl Lay Lay will be out soon too. Be on the lookout for everything I mentioned and more. Love y’all and thank you for all your support!
