Ramy is a Hulu original series that tells the story of Ramy and his journey towards a better and improved self through the means of the Muslim religion. The series is a truly brave endeavour as it tries to bring dangerous oxymorons together. Season 1 premiered back in 2019. The immense popularity of the show was noticed and in 2020 Hulu released season 2. Ramy 2 will be a must watch!
Each season has 10 episodes with a running time of 23-43 minutes. The bravely crafted series is written by Ramy Yussef, who also plays the protagonist and serves as the executive producer of the show. Yussef’s performance had led to winning Golden Globe awards for best actor in TV comedy series and made him win the 2020 Peabody award as well.
This seriously funny and closely relatable show is what you need to watch and hopefully it will be nice and much respite from typical dark ñ twisted stuff.
Plot of Ramy 2
Ramy Hassan is a Muslim man born to first-generation immigrants parents. He struggles with his family’s ways and ideals and his degrading lifestyle. His mother finally comes to rescue and asks his son to talk to the Imam,i.e. the priest of the local mosque.
As the meeting goes awry pretty quickly
Rame feels helpless. Then he meets Sheikh Ali who accepts him as his student and starts to guide him. But good things are meant to be difficult.
Season 1 takes as much time as it needs to establish the foundation of the plot. The problematic relationship between Ramy and his parents capture a lot of space. Secondly, Ramy’s problems, his addiction towards sex and pornography, immaturity, insecurity – everything is carefully explained.
The depth of his problems is clearly understood when right after his grandfather’s death, he has sex with his cousin. Getting physical becomes his outlet in which he can express himself.
A groundbreaking effort
In season 1 he tries his best to improve himself. But he keeps failing. He seems doomed to repeat his mistakes. Season 1 also explores the double standard behaviour among the Immigrants Muslim. It questions the unsaid standards of rules that people must follow to be a good Muslim.
Season 2: plot of Ramy 2
In season 2, Ramy considers himself a changed man and wants to settle and get married. The more he goes ahead, we see how little he has changed. He is still the very same person who has got only better and maintaining a new exterior of a new self.
The man who has been making mistakes all his life and probably had no intention of changing his ways decides to judge others and promotes himself as a superior man.
Religion in 21st century
Religion is the trickiest business in the world. Everyone has their version of it and interprets it as such. The show intends to highlight the need for spiritual support through religion that will help us navigate through the complex matters of modern life. It does not encourage or promote any particular religious beliefs or practices.

The show is available on Hulu.
Release date of Ramy 2
The second season of the show was released on 29th May 2020.
The show is hilarious in the sense of a comedy and at the same time manages to sincerely address those who do not believe in the concept of religion and argue that God doesn’t exist. This does not attempt to debate on God at all. It simply, if faith is found again and it helps, then why not just grab it and start anew?
