Hurrah… at last the second season of the wonderful United States of Tara is returning to ABC1 later this month.
This season’s synopsis indicates of Tara‘s (Toni Collette) alter-egos that some are returning and some are new.
She’s got a husband, two kids and multiple personalities. Toni Collette returns in her Emmy and Golden Globe winning role in the new season of United States of Tara, the comedy series produced by Steven Spielberg.
Toni stars as Tara Gregson, a suburban wife, mother and sister with DID (dissociative identity disorder formerly known as multiple personality disorder). The new series starts with a bang – literally. Just as Tara decides to move on from her past, a sudden neighbourhood incident opens the door to her family’s shocking secrets.
Her alters – some returning and some new – will help unravel the mysteries while simultaneously infusing their own chaos into the mix. Meanwhile the rest of Tara’s family explore their own identities as Max hits a boiling point; Marshall questions his sexuality; Kate takes on an online fantasy persona; and Charmaine finds herself in a complicated love triangle.
In tonight’s first episode, the Gregsons’ neighbour commits suicide and the family unexpectedly is given responsibility of the house. Now well and dissociation-free for several months, Tara sets out to make new friends with Max’s help. Marshall struggles to fit in at school, Kate lands a new job, and Nick pops the question to Charmaine.
It returns on Wednesday June 23 at 9.30pm.
