Season Premiere
HBO Max's rom-com anthology series returns for a second season with William Jackson Harper (The Good Place) replacing Anna Kendrick in the lead role. This time 'round, Harper takes on the role of the initially-unlucky-but-ultimately-lucky-in-love protagonist, while Jessica Williams (2 Dope Queens) plays the object of his affection, Mia Hines. Not unlike Kendrick's Darby, Harper's Marcus finds himself navigating his way through clumsy hookups, devastating breakups, and plenty of questionable decisions when his marriage unexpectedly ends. And, because the treacherous world of New York City dating wasn't brutal enough, the pandemic also hits halfway through Marcus' quest to find love. But luckily, his best buddy Yogi (Chris Powell) and sister Ida (Punkie Johnson) are there to pick Marcus up when he falls — and believe us, he falls often. —Ruth Kinane
