Returning: SMILF

Adult themes.

Season 2 of  comedy series SMILF returns to Stan in late January new episodes weekly, same day as the US.

The series stars creator, executive producer and showrunner Frankie Shaw as a single mother Bridgette Bird living fearlessly – and her family, exes and friends, plus Rosie O’Donnell.

Season two guest stars Melanie Griffith, Claudia O’Doherty and Ally Sheedy plus Stormy Daniels, Ari Graynor and Dan Aid.

Filmed on location in Boston, this season finds Bridgette trying to move forward and focus on her future, while attempting to exorcise old ghosts and atone for past misdeeds. She’s still toiling away in her day job working for narcissistic boss Ally (guest star Connie Britton). Meanwhile, Bridgette’s mother Tutu (O’Donnell) rallies from a heartbreaking setback punctuated by the presence of her co-dependent younger sister Jackie (guest star Sherie Rene Scott). Ex-boyfriend Rafi (Miguel Gomez) and his girlfriend Nelson Rose (Australian Samara Weaving) grow closer, while Eliza (Raven Goodwin, now a series regular) deals with her own family drama. Viewers will also go back in time to witness the highly unconventional birth of Bridgette’s beloved son, Larry (Alexandra and Anna Reimer).

The series takes a comedic look at the life of a young woman from South Boston who struggles to overcome her personal demons, as well as the circumstantial trials and tribulations of working class single motherhood. Shaw brings her singular, unapologetic point of view to the semi-autobiographical comedy series, whose title is meant to be ironic and to reclaim the demeaning nature of the label. The cast also includes Miguel Gomez, Samara Weaving, Raven Goodwin and Alexandra and Anna Reimer. Executive producing alongside Shaw are Oscar nominee Michael London, Lee Eisenberg and Scott King. 

Monday January 21 on Stan.

  1. I’m still in two minds whether to watch this. There’s too much to watch and very little time. I stumbled across A.P Bio comedy TV show on Stan and binge watched. Highly recommended.
