Okay ladies, now let's get in formation!

Prime Video's empowering series Harlem is reuniting some of our favorite ladies for an exciting second season.

Meagan Good and Jerrie Johnson both return to their respective roles and bring even more drama in the jam-packed new episodes.

Johnson's character Tye embraces her queerness on a heightened level this time around, with the actress thrilled that more people will connect with the role.

"It feels like the natural thing to do. It feels real and it also is fun to show queers living life and having a good time. It's not about them being down and out or coming out. That's always exciting that I get to play the queer character that gets to do that. I pay homage to all the queer characters that came before me that didn't, but that set the stage for this to be possible," Johnson says.

Meagan Good always seems to have a project or two lined up, but this gig has a special place in her heart.

"It's just wonderful to come back to this and come back to great scripts. I feel like this season is even better than last season. It feels like such a gift and it is such a blessing," Good tells PRIDE.

Beyond her time on Harlem, Good is also looking forward to continue her story in the very popular DC Comics film Shazam: Fury of the Gods. The actress will reprise her role as Darla Dudley in the highly anticipated sequel.

"I'm so excited, because you know we shot the first one in 2018. This was wonderful because the older kids are in a lot of the movie this time. I've always wanted to be in the DC or Marvel world. I want little Black girls to be able to see themselves in this character, which works out perfectly because I literally play a little 12-year-old Black girl. It's pretty epic."

Harlem is streaming now on Amazon Prime Video, and Shazam: Fury of the Gods comes out March 17 in theaters. To see the full interview with Meagan Good and Jerrie Johnson, check out the video below.
