HBO has released the trailer for the second season of Divorce and in it, we see that starting over can be more difficult than one might think.
From Sharon Horgan (Catastrophe), Divorce follows Frances (Sarah Jessica Parker), an unhappily married corporate headhunter whose experience with her similarly jaded friends inspires her to separate from long-time husband Robert (Thomas Haden Church). However, Frances soon realizes that consciously uncoupling is more emotionally, financially, and logistically complex that she had anticipated and that the buried resentment and anger between herself and Robert manifests itself in way damaging to the both of them.
Season two of Divorce, which will feature the addition of Becki Newton (Ugly Betty) and Steven Pasquale (Rescue Me), will be focusing on what happens after the nastiness of the initial post-split shock subsides and how two people married for a long time must rebuild their sense of self once they’re alone again.
The second season of Divorce premieres Sunday, January 14th at 10:00 on HBO. You can check out synopses of every episode this season here.
Will you be watching? How do you think Robert and Frances will do out in the world as single people? Do you think it’s likely that the two will retreat back to one another once they realize how scary the world can be when you’re alone?
