When We Are Lady Parts premiered on Peacock in 2021, it was my favorite show that year. On the surface, the show follows a group of Muslim women who form a punk band, Lady Parts. However, the show is about so much more. Through its exploration of culture, religion, music, friendship, and more, the show offers a rich and multifaceted narrative. Additionally, the killer soundtrack adds another layer of relatability and enhances the overall viewing experience.

So, in this season of We Are Lady Parts, viewers can expect a more profound exploration of the band’s journey as they navigate the realities of achieving their dreams. The season delves into the complexities of friendships, relationships, fan interactions, and the music industry as a whole. While managing to maintain its signature quirky comedy style.


So, in season 2 of We Are Lady Parts, viewers can expect a refreshing departure from the typical sophomore slump experienced by many shows. Season one primarily centered around guitarist Amina (Anjana Vasan) and singer/songwriter Saira (Sarah Kameela Impey). Season two delves deeper into the lives of all band members, which I love. Somehow, writer Nida Manzoor skillfully navigates the exploration of each character. She delivers continues to blend humor, relatability, as well as poignancy. The new season also introduces a wealth of incredible original music, which I’m calling “heart songs”. Every song is tailored to each character featured prominently in the episodes.

So, if you found yourself captivated by the catchy tunes of season one’s “Voldemort Under My Headscarf” and “Bashir With The Good Beard,” prepare to be enthralled by the musical offerings of season two. From the infectious beats of “Malala Made Me Do It” to the empowering anthem about having boundaries, the lyrics in season two stay true to the genre with their candid and entertaining nature.

So, as the stories of Bisma, Ayesha, and Momtaz unfold, viewers are taken on a journey where themes of love, camaraderie, music, heritage, and individuality intertwine. Through their personal growth, these characters challenge and redefine stereotypes, showcasing the complexities of their identities and the power of embracing one’s true self. Their narratives not only entertain but also inspire reflection on the importance of authenticity and breaking societal norms.

While it may seem heavy, I promise it’s not. The series balances humor and more light-hearted storylines throughout. One of which is Amina’s possible love life. Is there a love triangle brewing? I dare not say. You’ll have to watch and find out.

We Are Lady Parts season 1 is currently available on Peacock with Season 2 premiering on May 30th!
