HBO Max has handed out its first renewal for its original scripted series, “Love Life,” for a second season.
The final four episodes of Season one became available on HBO Max this Thursday. Anna Kendrick starred in Season one of the show in addition to executive producing. Kendrick will remain onboard as an executive producer for Season two, but the season will focus on a new lead character.
Season two will remain set in New York City but will focus on a new character’s journey – one which explores what happens when you’ve lived your whole life knowing who your soulmate is, only to find out years into a marriage that it’s not the right fit at all. The new season will also key off characters in season one, with Kendrick’s Darby appearing occasionally.
“It’s so rewarding to see Love Life embraced as an immediate hit. We are proud to pick up a second season of our first Max scripted original comedy,” said Kevin Reilly, Chief Content Officer at HBO Max, President, TNT, TBS and truTV. “We salute Anna, our creative team and partners at Lionsgate, and are delighted audiences have gravitated to Love Life in such a significant way. As a day one original, it is gratifying to see the strong response.”
“We couldn’t be more excited to make another season of Love Life with the amazing people at HBO Max and Lionsgate Television, and to have the opportunity to explore a whole new protagonist. If only as a way to continue processing our own romantic damage,” said creator, co-showrunner and executive producer Sam Boyd and co-showrunner and executive producer Bridget Bedard.
Season one of the series has become of one of the streaming platform’s top performers since its premiere. Its final four episodes are available for streaming now on HBO Max.
Love Life is produced by Lionsgate Television and Feigco Entertainment. The series hails from creator Sam Boyd (In a Relationshi), who co-show runs with Bridget Bedard (Transparent, Ramy). Boyd and Bedard serve as executive producers alongside Kendrick, Paul Feig (A Simple Favor, Bridesmaids) and Dan Magnante (Someone Great).
