What Is Cherish the Day About?

Cherish the Day is an American romantic drama anthology television series created and produced by Ava DuVernay. The series chronicles the relationship of one couple, with each episode spanning a single day marking a significant moment. The series stars Xosha Roquemore, Alano Miller and Cicely Tyson, and the title references the Sade song "Cherish the Day". The series premiered on February 11, 2020 on Oprah Winfrey Network. On October 26, 2020, the series was renewed for a second season.

OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network announced that Joy Bryant ("Parenthood," "For Life") and Henry Simmons ("Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.," "NYPD Blue") have been set to star in season two of award-winning creator Ava DuVernay's anthology drama series "Cherish the Day," from ARRAY Filmworks and Warner Bros. Television. Production will begin this month in New Orleans, with the new season expected to debut in 2022.

"Cherish the Day" is an anthology series that chronicles the relationship of one couple, with each episode spanning a single day. In season two, the rekindling of a romance is told -- the love story of Ellis (Henry Simmons) and Sunday (Joy Bryant), who fell in love in high school but find themselves reunited in beautiful New Orleans. Ellis is a former basketball player who is now a single father of two, and Sunday is a vegan celebrity chef on the cusp of fame. Each episode of the season-long narrative unfolds in a single day to reveal significant moments in a relationship that compel us to hold true to the ones we love, from the extraordinary to the everyday.

Joy is best known for her NAACP Image Award-nominated role as Jasmine in the long-running series "Parenthood," and recently starred in the ABC series "For Life" opposite Nicholas Pinnock and Indira Varma. Joy has appeared opposite Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson on HBO's Emmy Award-nominated drama "Ballers," was a regular on the critically acclaimed Amazon original series "Good Girls Revolt," and guest starred in the final season of HBO's award-winning series "Girls." Her film credits include "About Last Night," "Hit and Run," "Bobby," "Get Rich or Die Tryin'," "The Skeleton Key," "Carmen: A Hip Hopera" with Beyoncé, and Denzel Washington's directorial debut, "Antwone Fisher."

Simmons most recently starred in "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." for ABC, and previously starred in the final six seasons of the landmark ABC drama "NYPD Blue," created by Steven Bochco and David Milch. He was also a series regular on the CBS legal drama "Shark" and ABC comedy "Man Up." Simmons starred in the feature film "No Good Deed," opposite Idris Elba and Taraji P. Henson, for Screen Gems. He also starred opposite Henson and Michael Clarke Duncan in "From the Rough," and opposite Robin Williams in the independent film "World's Greatest Dad." He was named Best Actor at the 2007 American Black Film Festival for his performance in "South of Pico." Additional film acting credits include "Madea's Family Reunion," "Something New," "Taxi," "Are We There Yet?," "The Insurgents," "A Gentleman's Game," and "Above the Rim."
