Pivot has announced its investment into a second season ahead of the first season premiering in August, including series marathons for binge-watching and On Demand.
Thomas said: “I’m so happy that we get to make a second season of Please Like Me. I have loads of ideas for season two and I think it’ll be super fun. The whole Pivot line-up is great and I’m excited that they’ve trusted me with their money. I hope I don’t spoil everything with my ideas and mediocre face, which is currently ruining the days of thousands of bus commuters all over America.”
Evan Shapiro, President of Pivot added, “Everyone who sees Please Like Me falls in love with Josh and this series because it’s a hysterical, authentic snap shot of a quarter life crisis in the 21st Century. Josh is a true star in the making, with an original voice that is perfect for Pivot and our audience. We are enormously excited to bring his awkward genius to the world and to be producing a second season with him, his cast and the Australian Broadcast Network.”
Please Like Me screened on ABC2 earlier this year to critical acclaim and was selected for the Series Mania TV Festival in France.
The series was created and written by Josh Thomas, produced by Todd Abbott and directed by Matthew Saville. Executive Producers are Josh Thomas, Todd Abbott and Kevin Whyte.
