BET’s series The Quad, which takes viewers inside the unique, culture-filled world of Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU), returns for Season 2 on January 23, 2018 on BET at 10P/9C.

“THE Quad” follows ambitious yet troubled Dr. Eva Fletcher (Anika Noni Rose), the first woman and youngest President of the fictional prestigious HBCU school, Georgia A&M University.

In Season Two, we find the driven Dr. Eva Fletcher struggling to raise capital for the nearly bankrupt institution during the Spring semester. The University does not want to become Morris Brown College, struggling to maintain its historical significance — but as financial misfortunes take GAMU’s status from bad to worse, their only chance of keeping their doors open seems to be merging with the predominantly White Atlanta State University.

Not everyone is against joining the mainstream college system and the fresh infusion of much needed cash it would bring. But at what cost? An HBCU environment is a family environment, with a thick and powerful legacy of educated students who often couldn’t be educated anywhere else. But a legacy doesn’t keep the lights on.

Students protest, allegiances are challenged, and friendships are jeopardized as students, faculty, and the administration struggle to define their place in the fight; while our freshman class also deals with the stress of pledging, hazing, academic probation, post-traumatic stress, hate crime attacks, and prescription drug abuse.

Returning cast members include Ruben Santiago-Hudson as Band Director Cecil Diamond, Peyton Alex Smith as Cedric Hobbs, Sean Blakemore as Coach Eugene Hardwick, Jazz Raycole as Dr. Fletchers daughter, Syndey Fletcher; Zoe Renee as Noni Williams, Michelle Defraites as Madison Kelly, Jake Allyn as BoJohn Folsom.

Recurring cast members joining this season are Antwan “Big Boi” Patton Sr., Sheryl Lee Ralph, Debbi Morgan and RonReaco Lee as Clive Taylor, along with Jasmine Guy as Elle Grace Caldwell, who recurred heavily in the first season.

The emotionally-charged series is created by Felicia D. Henderson (Gossip Girl, Soul Food) and Charles Holland (CSI: Miami, NY Undercover), based on a concept created by Rob Hardy (How To Get Away With Murder, Power). The show is executive produced by Henderson and Hardy. Mitzi Miller is a Co-executive producers on the project. “THE Quad” is production of Rainforest Entertainment and WaterWalk Productions in conjunction with BET Networks.
