After the first season met unexpected success and critical praise for destigmatizing mental illness, it looks like Maria is feeling anxious about Netflix‘s slightly higher expectations this time around. Luckily her agent Karen Grisham (played by Ana Gasteyer) has enough confidence for the two of them.
She assures Maria that season 2 “will be so unbelievably inventive and groundbreaking in its comedy that alt-comedy Twitter will choke on its own jizz.”
Most of the main cast appears to be returning, with fun guest appearances from Judd Apatow, Andy Samberg, Fred Armisen, David Spade, “Weird Al” Yankovic, Jenny Slate, Judy Greer, and Jason Mantzoukas. Plus, Ólafur Darri Ólafsson is back as Maria’s boyfriend.
The show has always artfully woven a meta-commentary on streaming TV into the plot, and thankfully it seems like that won’t be going away anytime soon.
