Max Original series Starstruck, from comedian Rose Matafeo and co-writers Alice Snedden and Nic Sampson, returns for a second season with all six episodes debuting Thursday, March 24.

After her grand gesture at the end of season one, in season two, Jessie must deal with the real-world consequences of deciding to stay and pursue a relationship with Tom, rather than sticking to her original plan of returning home to New Zealand.
