Get ready for some more laughs! Rutherford Falls is coming our way in just a couple of weeks.
The Peacock comedy series is known for its Native American representation both in front of and behind the cameras. The show has five Native writers including Sierra Teller Ornelas (Navajo), Tai Leclaire (Kanien’kehá:ka [Mohawk Nation]/Mi’kmaq), Jana Schmieding (Cheyenne River Lakota Sioux), Tazbah Chavez (Bishop Paiute/Diné/San Carlos Apache), Dash Turner (Yurok) and Azie Dungey (Pamunkey).
The comedy was created by Teller Ornelas, Michael Schur, and actor Ed Helms who also stars as one of the main characters. The first season dropped on Peacock in April 2021, so the show’s sophomore season has been a long time coming!
The first season introduced us to lifelong friends Nathan Rutherford and Reagan Wells, whose relationship is tested after the mayor decides to move a statue of Nathan’s ancestor because car drivers keep crashing into it in their small town. Nathan begins a quest to keep the statue in its place, causing Reagan to juggle loyalty to her friend and to her people, the Minishonka Nation.
