HBO announced today that the critically acclaimed comedy series Somebody Somewhere has been renewed for a second season.
The season one finale debuts on February 27.
From Mighty Mint, Duplass Brothers Productions, and creators & executive producers Hannah Bos and Paul Thureen (writers on HBO’s High Maintenance), the series follows Sam (played by Everett), a true Kansan on the surface, but, beneath it all, struggling to fit the hometown mold.
Grappling with loss and acceptance, singing is Sam’s saving grace and leads her on a journey to discover herself and a community of outsiders who don’t fit in but don’t give up, showing that finding your people and finding your voice is possible. Anywhere. Somewhere.
Season one stars Everett alongside Jeff Hiller (Nightcap), Mary Catherine Garrison (HBO’s Veep), Danny McCarthy (The Ballad of Buster Scroggs), and Mike Hagerty (HBO’s Lucky Louie).
“Bridget Everett brings such warmth to the screen; it’s been an absolute joy to see audiences share a sense of belonging with this ensemble,” said Amy Gravitt, executive vice president of HBO Programming.
“We’re delighted to have Hannah and Paul remind us all where we come from in another season of Somebody Somewhere.”
Season one of Somebody Somewhere is co-created and executive-produced by Hannah Bos & Paul Thureen. The show stars and is executive-produced by Bridget Everett.
It is executive produced by Carolyn Strauss for Mighty Mint, Jay Duplass, Mark Duplass, and Mel Eslyn for Duplass Brothers Productions, Patricia Breen, and Tyler Romary. The producer is Shuli Harel.
The series is written by Hannah Bos, Paul Thureen, and Patricia Breen and directed by Jay Duplass and Robert Cohen.
