Love Life renewed for Season 2 by HBO Max

Loving Love Life like us? Of course you are! You’ll be happy to know there will be a second season on HBO Max. It’s going to be a new story.

Hands up if you’re loving Love Life. We get it. The first season has been a fun ride, as it took us through the relationships of Anna Kendrick’s Darby. Now there’s some excellent news for the future. There will be a second season.

HBO Max announced in a press release that Love Life Season 2 will happen. However, it’s not going to be focused on Darby. It sounds like this is turning into an anthology series.

New season, new protagonist

The second season is going to focus on a new character and a new string of love lives. This isn’t all that surprising. The first season did set up things well for an anthology series. Had the show not been renewed, it would work well as a limited series.

It’s not just Kendrick that people are tuning into Love Life for. The show is one of those that connects to people for all sorts of reasons. It’s a series that touches on human emotions, friendships, connections, and more. It’s about personal resilience and life in general, which are storylines that will work with all types of characters.

Darby could still return

Depending on the way Love Life Season 2 is set up, there is always the chance that we could see Darby return. After all, it’s not like her story completely ended. It’s not like she’s completely out of every picture.

We could see her starting out as the girlfriend of a protagonist, such as Danny TwoPhones. This could allow us to learn more about the men that Darby formed relationships with throughout the first season. Or we could focus on a friend Darby made throughout her life.

The idea is to give us one connection that we’re familiar with to move onto the next story.

Of course, co-showrunners and EPs Sam Boyd and Bridget Bedard are only just learning the series has been renewed. They know they want to focus on a new protagonist, and now it’s time to focus on what that story will be.
