British comedy series Trying will return to Apple TV+ for a second season in mid May and a third season has also been announced.
Returning cast for S2 include Esther Smith and Rafe Spall plus Ophelia Lovibond, Oliver Chris, Sian Brooke, Darren Boyd and Robyn Cara.
In the eight-episode second season of “Trying,” Nikki (BAFTA nominee Esther Smith) and Jason (SAG nominee Rafe Spall) are continuing to navigate the adoption process. Having been approved by the adoption panel they now find that matching with a child is not as straightforward as they had hoped. It seems like children are being snapped up by other couples while somehow they’re being left behind. Helped by their eccentric social worker Penny (Imelda Staunton) they are determined to do everything they can. When Nikki meets a little girl called Princess at an adoption event she knows instantly that this is the child for them. But there are obstacles to Nikki’s plan that may prove insurmountable.
“Trying” is created, written and executive produced by Andy Wolton, directed and executive produced by Jim O’Hanlon (“Catastrophe,” “Marvel’s The Punisher”), produced by Sam Pinnell, (“Motherland,”“Derry Girls”), co-produced by Tim Mannion and executive produced by Josh Cole. The series is produced by BBC Studios.
New episodes will screen every Friday from May 14 on Apple TV+.
