The SMILF series will be coming back for a second season. The show is a comedy series which is based on a short film, which has the same title. The show has been created by Frankie Shaw, and she has also written the series. Shaw also directs SMILF, and she even plays the lead role in it. One might think that the show is kind of weird but, it has actually received a lot of positive feedback from the audience. Thus, the show ended up getting a renewal.
The first season of SMILF aired back on November 5, 2017. SMILF’s first season had a total of eight episodes and the second season will be longer than the first one. The second season will have ten episodes. It has been confirmed that the second season will return in 2019. To be more specific, it will return in January 2019. The fans will be excited to see more of Bridgette Bird.
The president of Programming at Showtime, Gary Levine had his say on the show. He said, “From its first episode, the refreshingly honest point of view of SMILF broke through with audiences, the press and on social media. Frankie Shaw is a creative force to be reckoned with, and we love having her on Showtime. Her show is funny and forthright, pointed and poignant, irreverent and relevant, all at once. We can’t wait to see where Frankie takes SMILF next season.”
The main cast will be coming back for its second season. Here is the possible cast for season two —
Frankie Shaw as Bridgette Bird
Miguel Gomez as Rafi
Samara Weaving as Nelson Rose
Rosie O’Donnell as Tutu
Anna and Alexandra Reimer as Larry
Connie Britton as Ally

In an interview, Shaw revealed that the show would become “weirder and darker.” She said, “We’re dealing with identity and the masks we wear to present ourselves to the world. And who are we when we take the mask off? We’re two months into the writer’s room, and we start shooting this summer in Boston.”
