‘Die Hart 2: Die Harter’ Trailer: Kevin Hart, John Cena, & Nathalie Emmanuel Team For Season 2 Of Roku’s Action-Comedy

Kevin Hart’s action-comedy series Die Hart was one of many projects to emerge from the failed Quibi experiment. The first season repackaged into a movie and shipped over to The Roku Channel and, most recently, Prime Video, the series is already back for season two with the appropriately-titled Die Hart 2: Die Harter.

Hart returns as a hyped-up version of himself, a comedy actor who longs to be a big action star. In the first season, he got schooled by John Travolta. But now that Hart is ready to launch his action career with a revolutionary genre film, he finds himself in the middle of some real-life trouble caused by a mysterious figure from his past.

It’s all very meta and self-referential nonsense, which is why it looks like so much fun. Joining Hart in the cast for this season are action genre stalwarts like Fast & Furious vets Nathalie Emmanuel and John Cena, plus comedy stars Ben Schwartz and Paula Pell.

The series is directed by Eric Appel, who just scored a huge hit for Roku with Weird: The Al Yankovic Story. Die Hart 2: Die Harder hits The Roku Channel on March 31st.

After achieving his dream of becoming a bona fide action hero in DIE HART, Kevin Hart now wants to cement his legacy as the greatest action star of all time. He’s developed a concept for a revolutionary movie where the action is so unscripted and unexpected that even Kevin won’t know what’s coming next. But Kevin’s myopic dream comes with a blind spot, and he soon finds himself the victim of an evil revenge plot, orchestrated by someone from his past. Kevin must enlist the help of his favorite co-star Jordan King (Nathalie Emmanuel, returning for season 2), his over-eager assistant Andre (Ben Schwartz), Andre’s mom Cynthia (Paula Pell), and legendary Hollywood stuntman Mr. 206 (John Cena) if he wants to survive.
