Frankie Shaw is trying to forget the past and focus on her future in the second season of her hit comedy series “SMILF”, which just got a trailer and premiere date.
The popular Showtime series, starring, created and executive produced by Shaw, was renewed while its first season was still airing back in November last year and will return to our screens on Sunday, January 20, 2019.
“SMILF” stars Shaw as Bridgette, a 20-something single mom and aspiring actress who is struggling to make ends meet. Her days involve tutoring the children of her conceited boss Ally (Connie Britton) and getting into petty arguments with her stubborn and opinionated mother Tutu (Rosie O’Donnell).
Britton and O’Donnell return for season two alongside Miguel Gomez, who plays Bridgette’s ex-boyfriend/baby-daddy Rafi, Samara Weaving, as Rafi’s Australian girlfriend Nelson, and Raven Goodwin (now a series regular), Bridgette’s best friend.
The new season also features a long list of guest stars, including Melanie Griffith, Claudia O’Doherty, Ally Sheedy, Ari Graynor, Dan Aid, and controversial figure, Stormy Daniels, who is reported to play a “wise street vendor.”
A synopsis reads: “Filmed on location in Boston, this season finds Bridgette trying to move forward and focus on her future, while attempting to exorcise old ghosts and atone for past misdeeds.”
The trailer shows a quick clip of a pregnant Bridgette, which suggests we will see some flashbacks to before the Boston native gave birth to her beloved son Larry (played by twins Alexandra and Anna Reimer).
Shaw and her fellow cast members also look to have gone to town in the costume department this year, with the trailer highlighting what seems to be Royal Family and Western-themed episodes.
“SMILF” second two premieres on Showtime Sunday, January 20, at 10:30 p.m.
