About Him: Freshman Year continues to make waves with new, riveting content as we now follow Damien (Brandon Karson) and Kendall (Rahim Brazil) into college. Thus far the series has granted us some very funny moments and some so hot you will sweat like you are in a sauna! Still  there is much more to this popular series than just Damien and Kendall.

Hearts are swooning and lips are licking all thanks to one popular web star, Desmond Fletcher!

Desmond, as you may already know, is one of the most versatile and recognized web stars currently thanks to his appearance in a number of series. We first saw him on Tyson Anthony’s Pharm: The Series as a drug dealing escort, then Raising Eli as an aspiring actor with no real  motivation, and now as a church boy coming to terms with his sexuality in About Him: Freshman Year.

How many times can we say that Tyson Anthony is a true genius? Definitely once more, because it has never been truer!

The writer and creator of About Him, who also brought us Pharm: The Series and Entercourse is back with a second season of his hit web series, Raising Eli!

When we last left off in the first season finale Eli (Chris June) seemed to overwhelmed with personal, romantic, and financial issues. Meanwhile, Travis (Monnie Isham) and Shad (Desmond Fletcher) grew closer, bonding over pizza, video games, and general laziness. Elsewhere, we learned King (Desjuan Zaire) suffers from social anxiety disorder. In the second season a few months have passed and things seem to only have gotten even harder for Eli. He was evicted from his house and has moved into a home his grandmother left for him–with Travis in tow. To make matters worse his insensitive and obnoxious cousin, Monte moves in too when his lack of finances threaten to have their home foreclosed on.

[VIDEO/TRAILER] The Boys Are Back–Tyson Anthony’s “Raising Eli” Season 2!

If we have not said it before then please allow us to yell it from the rooftops (and put this in all Caps!), “TYSON ANTHONY IS THE MAN!”

Yep, your favorite writer and web series guru, Tyson Anthony is back with a new season of his hit show, Raising Eli!

When we left off last season it seemed like Eli (Chris June) had reached his boiling point after a series of stressful events. Besides having the son of his “sort of ex-boyfriend,” Travis (Monnie Isham) needing a place to stay, he was wrought with job offer rejections, bill collectors, and then repeated rejection from his love interest, King (Desjuan Zaire). Meanwhile, Travis found himself drawn to Eli’s complacent, and bisexual, neighbor, Shad (Desmond Fletcher) who dreams of being an actor, but loves his weed, Netflix, and chilling a little too much to be productive!

It’s a new day and a new debut in About Him history. Brandon Karson and Rahim Brazil are back in About Him: Freshman Year as “Damien” and “Kendall,” respectively. After the wild summer we all watched and fell for in the first season the boys are now ready to start college. This means new faces, new friends, and definitely more drama!

In case you didn’t know, the first episode of the new season dropped this morning and we already love it! Kendall is back up to his old tricks, and his powers of seduction have only gotten better. Meanwhile, Damien is determined to blaze his own path on campus;  steering clear of his brother and Vince– and men in general. That may be a lot harder than he realizes when he meets a “friendly” senior.

Tyson Anthony’s About Him: Freshman Year is already setting itself up to be a mega-hit?

How? With a super trailer that would make any of the Love & Hip-Hop previews blush! As we have mentioned in previous posts, Brandon Karson is BACK as “Damien,” along with Rahim Brazil as “Kendall,” (“Hey cuzzo!”) and a few new handsome faces that have us all going gaga!

The second season of the series is set in Damien’s first year of college and it looks anything, but typical. Damien is out on his own away from Vince and his big brother, Marion, but that does not mean he is out of trouble! The super trailer is going to leave you wanting to see more, know more, and of course binge watch these episodes like a new Netflix Marvel series! Check it out below!

In the words of a girl stuck in the nineties, “Aww sookie, sookie now!” Tyson Anthony and Bawn TV  really are a match made in heaven. If this series is anything like Tyson’s others (Entercourse, Raising Eli, Pharm: The Seriesthen we already know we will truly be entertained. The cast looks amazing, Brandon and Rahim are good in just about anything together–their chemistry and brotherhood on and off screen is admirable. Desmond Fletcher is a welcomed addition to the cast. We loved him in Pharm and on Raising Eli. He definitely has the “skills” to keep us tuned in.

About Him just cannot be stopped and we are not complaining.

We are dedicated to complete coverage of both series and our very own “Michael “Hey Mikey” Fanning, was invited to meet the cast of Tyson Anthony’s About Him: Freshman Year.
