The girls return home to learn about their mystical lineage; but to do so, each of them must face generational curses that made them flee, to begin with. This project shows magic across the African diaspora in a positive light and gives us a refreshing look into sisterhood, culture, and history.
SZN I: ACCEPTANCE
A curse has been broken.
Last season opened up with a birthday celebration. Ally, the fiery workaholic, and the last witch to turn to 28 broke a spell dating back centuries. Ada was sent by the ancestors to prepare and help guide them through their powers, but there's one thing she's not telling them. On every corner awaits a different evil that plots the girls' demise as they power through their taxing adult life and deal with their newfound powers.
In this first season and introduction to a world never seen before, these girls had to learn to accept who they are and the destiny that was bestowed on them. The tone was soft-hearted, tender, and fun. We introduced different characters, cultures, and supernatural beings. Now it's time to get to the good stuff.

SZN II: ROOTS
In season two, we explore the girls' lineage, heritage, and where they come from. The witches' are forced to go back to the homes they desperately wanted to escape. A place where generational trauma and curses still exist. However, these are places that hold the answers to who they are and who the women before them were.
We will take a deeper look into the childhoods of each witch, the backstory of our other supernatural characters, and the worlds they come from. What's Chelsea's motive? Why is Ada really here? What is the prophecy? Is Jules a good vamp? Where's Kyle's wolf pack?

A story that was needed.
The response to Juju: The Web Series has been overwhelming. We've garnered so many viewers in such a short amount of time (in a span of three months!) We've had comments from all social media platforms thanking us for creating content for Black women and little Black girls. It has been an honor to take back control of the narrative surrounding our countries, cultures, traditions, and spiritualities. We want to continue to do the same for SZN II.
We're here to prove a point.
We're here to make our mark in the film and television industry. We're here to prove that not only do Black people and People of Color love fantasy and sci-fi but that our history literally possesses the elements of magic dating back to the dawn of time. It's time to make room for more stories in the supernatural realm. More vampires, more werewolves, more witches, and just more magic in color.
Securing funding would give us the resources we need to represent everyone's story clearly.
WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP:
Our goal is to deliver excellence.
Fantasy projects require a little more tender, love and care when it comes to producing from inception to completion. We've been transparent with our process. We had a few hiccups that we would like to improve on, the most important being lighting and sound.
Funding will help us in all phases of production (development, pre-production, production, post-production).
