'Casual' Season 2 Trailer: Jason Reitman's Comedy Explores The Difficulty Of Juggling Friendships At Any Age


The Golden Globe-nominated series “Casual” is back for a thrilling new season and we now have a new trailer to see what’s in store for Season 2. 

The Hulu original show follows Michaela Watkins as a recently divorced therapist Valerie, her angsty daughter Laura (Tara Lynne Barr) and her womanizing brother, Alex (Tommy Dewey). In this second batch of episodes, mother and daughter will discover that nowadays, in a world ruled by social media, it’s harder to make friends at any age. We see both Valerie and Laura try out new groups to meet people, but just don’t seem to fit in, once again showing that finding a romantic relationship is not the only thing that is difficult to come by these days. 

Alex also seems to be dealing with relationship issues, getting more exercise in his life and even trying to get into green juice.
