Abby McEnany’s Work In Progress is set to return to Showtime later this summer with a fresh season of new beginnings and more jokes. The series hails from co-creators McEnany and Tim Mason, with Lilly Wachowsk co-writing.
Set to premiere Sunday, Aug. 22 on Showtime, Work In Progress Season 2 will pick up from the previous chapter, with Abby (McEnany) coping with her break from Chris (Theo Germaine) and adjusting to life with best friend-turned-roommate, Campbell (Celeste Pechous).
Showtime also dropped the Season 2 official trailer, which sees its lead reflect on her past and take charge on moving forward to change “my life for the better.” The teaser also gives fans a quick glimpse at a Covid-19 storyline, as McEnany dons a face mask.
During the ATX Television Festival, McEnany and Wachowski revealed that the ongoing coronavirus pandemic will be featured in the sophomore season, but not a main focus.
“Our show sort of climaxes around Covid coming and the murder of George Floyd,” Wachowski said during a panel. “That is sort of where the end of our show takes place.”
Work In Progress is executive produced by McEnany and Wachowski. Lawrence Mattis and Josh Adler of Circle of Confusion also serve as executive producers with Tony Hernandez of JAX Media and Julia Sweeney.
