HBO Max has renewed ballroom competition series “Legendary” for a second season.
The show’s MC Dashaun Wesley will return along with the judges: Rapper Megan Thee Stallion, “The Good Place” star Jameela Jamil, the “Wonder Woman of Vogue” Leiomy Maldonado, and stylist and former “America’s Next Top Model” judge Law Roach.
Season one is currently available to stream on HBO Max in its entirety.
Here is the official description:
“In this series highlighting modern-day ball culture, ‘Houses’ battle in fashion and dance challenges including vogueing for the chance to snatch the legendary trophy and win a cash prize. Voguing is a competitive style of modern dance featuring high fashion and choreography based on poses struck by models. Legendary features eight voguing houses, each comprised of five performers and a leader–the house ‘parent.’ The teams compete in an arcing competition that documents a themed ball every episode from start to finish giving full access to the behind the scenes action.”
