Plot Synopsis

Loosely inspired by the real life of star Marlon Wayans, this half-hour family comedy series centers on Marlon Wayne, a loving (but immature) father committed to co-parenting his two kids -- daughter Marley and son Zack -- with his very-together ex-wife, Ashley. While his misguided fatherly advice, unstoppable larger-than-life personality and unpredictable Internet superstardom might get in the way sometimes, for Marlon, family really always does come first -- even if he's the biggest kid of all. NBC premiered MARLON on Wednesday, August 16, 2017 from 9-10pm ET/PT, showing back-to-back new episodes. In the series opener (9pm), "Pilot," Marlon and Ashley try a friendly divorce for their children's sake, but things get tricky when Ashley decides to date again. Marlon struggles to keep a sponsor for his online channel, The Marlon Way. Then, in the night's second episode (9:30pm), "Cleaning Out the Closet," Ashley is shocked to learn that Marlon has a storage unit crammed full of things from when they were married and challenges him to have a yard sale to part with it all.

Season 2 of MARLON premiered on Thursday, June 14, 2018 from 9-10pm ET/PT on NBC. This family comedy continues to center on a loving (but sometimes inappropriate) father committed to co-parenting his two kids with his very-together ex-wife. While his misguided fatherly advice, unstoppable larger-than-life personality and unpredictable Internet superstardom might get in the way sometimes, for Marlon family really always does come first -- even if he's the biggest kid of all. To open the new season, NBC debuted back-to-back new episodes:

"Model Parent" (9pm): Marlon convinces Ashley to let Zack model for a kids' athletic line after he is approached in a mall. After the shoot, Stevie, Yvette, Marlon and Ashley are horrified to see that the photos have been altered as the shirt he is modeling now contains the phrase "Funky Monkey." Ashley and Marlon decide to pull Zack from the campaign after the advertising executives fail to see the racism of the shirt.

"Wingman" (9:30pm): Marlon offers to be Ashley's wingman during a night out at a club. All is going well until Marlon meets someone too and Ashley finds herself jealous. Yvette gives Stevie a makeover and kisses him in an attempt to make her ex jealous.
