Aidy Bryant tries to change her life in Shrill season 2 teaser
Hulu has released the official teaser for the upcoming 8-episode second season of their Aidy Bryant-led comedy series Shrill, giving us a preview on what to expect for the new season as Annie tries to be the person that she wants to be. The series is scheduled to return on January 24. Check out the teaser below and the first look photos in the gallery!
In season 2, after facing her demons – her mom, her boss and, of course, her troll – Annie starts the season feeling pretty good with boyfriend Ryan by her side. That is until she realizes that hastily quitting her job and jumping into a relationship with someone who is, well, a little less career-focused may not have been the best idea. But Annie isn’t the only one on a path to self-discovery… she’ll be joined by both Fran and her mother, who are also figuring out what they really want out of life. And while it’s not easy to get what she always imagined she’d want, Annie is no longer the doormat she once was – and she’s just getting started.
The small-screen adaptation of Shrill is written by Lindy West, Ali Rushfield (Friends from College), and star Aidy Bryant (Saturday Night Live, The Big Sick). Bryant plays Annie, a young woman who wants to change her life, but not her body. Annie is trying to start her career while juggling bad boyfriends, a sick parent, and a perfectionist boss.
While Julia Sweeney (Pulp Fiction) played Bryant’s mother in the show, which also stars Lolly Adefope (Mission: Impossible — Fallout), Luka Jones (Her), Ian Owens (Oasis) and John Cameron Mitchell (Hedwig and the Angry Inch).
Lorne Michaels’ Broadway Video will produce Shrill along with Elizabeth Banks, Max Handelman’s Brownstone Productions and Warner Bros. Television. Jesse Peretz will direct and produce the first episode, while Carrie Brownstein will direct the second. Rushfield will serve as the series showrunner.
All six episodes of season one is already available for streaming, exclusively on Hulu.
