In Season 2, Annie starts the season after facing her demons – her mom, her boss, and of course, her troll – and feels pretty good with boyfriend Ryan by her side. Until she realizes that quitting her job hastily and starting a relationship with someone who is a little less career-minded might not be the best idea. But Annie is not the only one on the path to self-discovery. She is accompanied by Fran and her mother, who also find out what they really want in life. And while getting what she always imagined isn’t easy, Annie is no longer the doormat she used to be – and she’s just getting started.
The small screen adaptation of Shrill is written by Lindy West, Ali Rushfield (College friends) and Star Aidy Bryant (Saturday night live, The big sick one). Bryant plays Annie, a young woman who wants to change her life, but not her body. Annie tries to start her career balancing bad friends, sick parents and a perfectionist boss.
While Julia Sweeney (Junk literature) played Bryant’s mother on the show that also featured Lolly Adefope (Mission: Impossible – Fallout), Luka Jones (your), Ian Owens (oasis) and John Cameron Mitchell (Hedwig and the bad customs).
Lorne Michaels’ Broadway video produced Shrill along with Elizabeth Banks, Max Handelmans Brownstone Productions, and Warner Bros. Television, with Rushfield serving as the series showrunner. All episodes of the first two seasons can be streamed exclusively on Hulu. The third season premieres on May 7th.
