Inspired by the Lindy West‘s memoir of the same name, Hulu’s Shrill emerged as one of the greatest lowkey delights of 2018 with a breezy but empowering first season that put Saturday Night Live scene-stealer Aidy Bryant in the spotlight she so very much deserves. Bryant looks to be bringing another megawatt dose of her joyful charisma to Shrill Season 2, which drops on Hulu later this month and just launched a new trailer.
After somewhat blowing up her life at the end of the first season, quitting her job and confronting her troll face-to-face, Bryant’s Annie looks to continue her oh-so-relatable quest to take control of her life — and this time, Fran (Lolly Adefope) and Annie’s mom (Julia Sweeney) are on an empowering journey all their own.
Get a peak at the delightful new season in the trailer below. Shrill returns to Hulu with 8 new episodes on January 24.
Here’s the official synopsis for Shrill 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.
