We present the new version v2.0 of the public code BlackHawk designed to compute the Hawking radiation of black holes, with both primary and hadronized spectra. This new version aims at opening an avenue toward physics beyond the Standard Model (BSM) in Hawking radiation. Several major additions have been made since version v1.0: dark matter/dark radiation emission, spin 3/2 greybody factors, scripts for cosmological studies, BSM black hole metrics with their associated greybody factors and a careful treatment of the low energy showering of secondary particles; as well as bug corrections. We present, in each case, examples of the new capabilities of BlackHawk.
