Look out, New York. Billy and Julie are back. And they’ve brought company.
This year, the two frenemies have brought in old faces and new, from Julie’s mom Marilyn (the legendary Andrea Martin) to Julie’s boyfriend Arthur (James Urbaniak) to Todd (John Cho), a brand new beau for Billy. It’s a new step for the show, which has seen plenty of non-starter Billy dates (including a particularly memorable John Mulaney), but no season-long partner.
The trailer also teases another new cast member, Lucy Liu, as an editor working with Marilyn on a book project. (Oh, those scenes with the two of them are going to be a delight.)
Meanwhile, it looks like the tables have turned slightly for Julie, as Arthur’s career ambitions look to take him away from New York. But beyond the additions to the cast, this trailer seems to have all the show’s dependable highlights: emotional frustration, lighthearted ribbing and an unapologetic swipe at celebrity.
