'The Oval' Season 2 Full Cast List: Meet Ed Quinn, Kron Moore and other stars of BET show
'The Oval', which returns for its second season on July 20, has already been renewed for a third season
'The Oval', which is written and created by Tyler Perry, returns with its second season on July 20 on BET. The show follows the lives of a seemingly perfect interracial first family which includes President Hunter Franklin (Ed Quinn) and his wife Victoria played by Kron Moore. However, behind the picture-perfect facade there is a storm of lies, cheating and corruption.
Season 2 returns with an episode called 'The Target' in which we will see Hunter and Victoria in a power struggle concerning a terrorist and find Lilly (Ciera Payton) and Donald (Lodric D Collins) discussing their marriage and laying down ground rules. This all occurs while Barry (Vaughn W Hebron) struggles to hunt for his daughter. If political dramas appeal to you, then perhaps you will also be interested in shows such as 'The Comey Rule', 'The Swamp' and '537 Votes'.
