Here’s everything you need to know about Love Life season two.
What can you expect from Love Life season two?
William Jackson Harper plays new divorcee Marcus, as he navigates the New York dating scene
Love Life season one kicked off in 2020 and followed the romantic life of lead character Darby, played by Anna Kendrick.
However, this time the focus will be on new divorcee Marcus, played by William Jackson Harper (The Good Place), and how he navigates getting back into the New York dating scene.
Explaining the plot of season 2, HBO Max said: “As Marcus Watkins enters his 30s freshly divorced, he’s as lost as ever. Forced to rediscover his identity as a single Black man in New York, Marcus must learn to find love again.”
Will Anna Kendrick’s character Darby be in season two?
The lead character of Love Life will shift in season two to Marcus Watkins, played by William Jackson Harper.
Season one followed Darby searching for her soulmate, which she found in Grant played by Kingsley Ben-Adir.
The new season will still feature Darby (played by Anna Kendrick), however, she is no longer the lead character, as we focus on Marcus’ journey as a newly divorced 30-something trying to find himself.
Speaking to The Hollywood Report, the show’s creator, Sam Boyd said: “We have a fun way we can keep Darby floating in and out through this world.
“We would never want to give Darby short shrift by branching off to some other story that isn’t related to her.”
