At home, Wayne’s father is suffering from cancer, and sadly he dies. This leaves Wayne deeply disturbed, and in momentary madness, he burns down his house.


He burns his house down with the body in it. He then meets up with Del and proposes a cross-country ride to collect the 1979 Pontiac TransAm that his father owned.


Both Wayne and Del set out on the dirt bike that Wayne rides and set out to search and retrieve the Pontiac TransAm.


Here begins the wild and unexpected journey of Wayne and Del.

The show was a massive success. The pilot grabbed eyeballs with an unprecedented 27 million views.


The rest of the season was also equally well-watched. The hugely successful show was slated to make a comeback with a second season.


But, with the ongoing war between online streaming sites about who gets the best shows, highest viewership, original content, and so on, Youtube Premium decided to take a step back and let things cool down.


This put a major spanner in the works. The show lost its home on YouTube Premium.


However, Amazon Prime picked up Wayne. It was aired on Prime for the first time on November 6th, 2020.

But there’s no need to panic; sooner or later, it will be chosen for the upcoming season, and the show’s creators have already stated that they have huge plans for it.


Even if there are no updates for the second season yet, there are also no updates regarding the cancellation.


This made fans expect something from the creators. Let’s see what they deliver. 


Even though the wait might seem long, sometimes it is very common for these types of shows to get a new season pretty late because of the type of audience they have.


Until then, we have to resort to our analysis. Under good circumstances, we can expect the series to come around 2024.
