“Shrill” Renewed for Season 2

Aidy Bryant in "Shrill"

Hulu has renewed Shrill for Season 2.

The streaming service’s renewal comes one more after the comedy series made its debut.

Shrill has been very well received by audiences. Season 2 will span eight episodes, two more than Season 1’s count. 

The series based on Lindy West’s 2016 memoir Shrill: Notes from a Loud Woman stars Saturday Night Live‘s Aidy Bryant. It is unclear how the renewal might affect Bryant part on SNL. 

The series follows Annie (Bryant), an overweight young woman who wants to change her life, but not her body. While trying to start her career as a journalist, Annie juggles bad boyfriends, sick parents, and a perfectionist boss. Despite the world around her deeming her not good enough because of her weight, Annie starts to realize that she’s as good as anyone else, and acts on it.

Lolly Adefope, Luka Jones, Ian Owens, and John Cameron Mitchell also star in the series.

Shrill is expected to return in 2020.
