The Prancing Elites Project was renewed by Oxygen on Wednesday for a second season.

When the reality docu-series returns next year, it will expand from its current 30-minute iteration into an hour-long format, and all five members — Adrian Clemons, Kentrell Collins, Kareem Davis, Jerel Maddox and Tim Smith — will return.

In an exclusive sneak peek at the season 1 finale, airing Wednesday at 9 p.m. ET, the Elites are once again denied the opportunity to dance at a public event. Heartbroken by the news, Jerel considers quitting the team entirely.

“I’m just mad that we don’t have a damn parade,” adds Adrian in signature wide-eyed fashion. “This is like, really ridiculous. It don’t make no sense — you know parades [are] my favorite!”

This isn’t the first time viewers have seen the Elites denied from dancing in public. Their hometown of Mobile, Alabama, has not been shown to be particularly receptive to the five gay and gender-nonconforming dancers who have made J-setting — a form of dance that combines cheerleading-style movements with hip-hop — their passion. In the premiere, they were denied from dancing in a local parade, but decided to dance alongside it anyway.

However, their home state is not without their supporters — former Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes once visited the Elites to offer her support and advice, much to the absolute delight (and hysteria) of the Elites.
