A Walton Goggins photo from the set of The Righteous Gemstones affirms that season 2 has begun filming. Goggins’ Baby Billy Freeman character was introduced in season 1 of The Righteous Gemstones, HBO’s black comedy centered around the megachurch business and its long tradition of deception and greed. Season 1 boasted an impressive cast with many of them inclined to return for season 2, including Danny McBride, who also established the series. John Goodman, Adam Devine, and Edi Patterson also celebrity as a dysfunctional family of televangelists and megachurch pastors.
While much remains unknown about the storyline of season 2, Judy Gemstone celebrity Edi Patterson revealed in July of 2020 that production came to some grinding halt at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic last March. A new gigantic set had only been built in Charleston, South Carolina, and was prepared to be used. The team had only wrapped their first day of filming and also the following day production was shut down, according to Patterson. This layoff lasted over a year, but the good news is now 2 has resumed filming. There are also been discussion of a holiday special that may potentially be prepared to air this year in time for Christmas.
Now, Walton Goggins has confirmed that season 2 of The Righteous Gemstones has resumed filming. The actor posted a photo to Instagram of himself character as the creepy 70-year-old paster named Baby Billy Freeman. Goggins captioned the picture with”Baby is back! Done. You know what time it’s!!! #TRG.” The 49-year-old celebrity is seen giving a thumbs up while standing before a production trailer decorated with The Righteous Gemstones emblem. Take a Look at the picture below:
It’s unclear whether this established photo was approved by The Righteous Gemstones production group or the actor moved rogue and posted it himself. Nevertheless, fans should be thrilled to hear that filming season 2 has picked back up. Hopefully, the sophomore season is going to be finished free of any additional delays due to COVID.
HBO revived The Righteous Gemstones to get a second season in September of 2019, soon after the season 1 finale aired, so it is clear that the network has a great deal of confidence in the humour moving forward. McBride has had a whole lot of success in HBO with Eastbound & Down and Vice Principals, so it’s going to be exciting to find out what his outrageous and cringe-worthy manner of humour produces for season 2 of The Righteous Gemstones.
