If you’re lamenting the options for nuanced, adult dramas and comedies at the movies, then may I turn your attention to “Togetherness.” The HBO series is flat out terrific, alternately funny and moving, with a great cast and excellent writing that almost makes it look too easy. The gang is coming back for a second season, and the first trailer is here.
Season one ended on a helluva cliffhanger (I won’t spoil it here), but it does look like it has some ramifications for all involved as they adjust to the shifting relationship dynamics. But as I said, the approach is (deceptively) breezy, with the show presenting a layered look at the complexities of middle age life.
Starring Mark Duplass, Melanie Lynskey, Amanda Peet, and Steve Zissis, “Togetherness” returns on February 21, 2016. Watch below.
