The acronymal Showtime comedy SMILF will be back with new episodes very soon according to a trailer for the critical favorite’s second season. In the pop music-fueled trailer, we see flashes of Bridgette still trying to find her place in the world. As we flash between a fancy gala, a polo match, and a Wild West tourist stop, we hear star and creator Frankie Shaw say, “It’s like I’m living someone else’s life.”
Season 2 will show Bridgette still sweating it at her day job while her mother, played by the illustrious Rosie O’Donnell, continues to recover from a manic episode we witnessed towards the end of the first season. We’ll also see more of Bridgette’s ex Rafi, his girlfriend Nelson, and Tutu’s younger sister Jackie, as well as the “highly unconventional birth” of little Larry.
SMILF, based on Shaw’s award-winning 2015 Sundance Film Festival Short Film by the same name, has been a fan favorite at Showtime at a time when uncertainty surrounds the network’s other working-class hit series Shameless. Earlier this year, stars Emmy Rossum and Cameron Monaghan announced they will no longer be on the show. Showtime announced back in 2016 that the Emmy winner would be back for a ninth season.
Season 2 of SMILF will host some major guest stars, including controversial porn star Stormy Daniels. Other guest stars include Ari Graynor, Claudia O’Doherty, Melanie Griffith. Kerry Washington, of Scandal fame, and Cate Shortland will both go behind the camera to direct episodes of the new season.
See if you can spot Stormy Daniels in the Season 2 SMILF trailer! Season 2 will debut January 20, 2019 at 10:30 p.m. ET on Showtime.
