Rafe Spall and Esther Smith return to Apple TV+ this weekend for Season 2 of Trying, and a new trailer gives us a first look at the comedy’s second chapter.
The first British original show for Apple’s subscription streaming service, Trying follows Nikki (Esther Smith) and Jason (Rafe Spall), who want a baby more anything, but it’s the one thing they just can’t have. After ruling out every other option, Nikki and Jason decide to adopt and are confronted by a world of bewildering new challenges. With their dysfunctional friends, screwball family, and chaotic lives, will the adoption panel agree that they’re ready to be parents?
Co-starring Imelda Staunton and Ophelia Lovibond, the show is written and executive produced by Andy Wolton, directed and executive produced by Jim O’Hanlon (Catastrophe), produced by Sam Pinnell (Motherland), co-produced by Tim Mannion, and executive produced by Josh Cole. It launched on Apple TV+ last May and has already been renewed for a third season.
“Rafe Spall and Esther Smith are charming in Apple TV+’s likeable comedy,” we wrote in our review.
The eight-episode Season 2 will follow Nikki and Jason as they continue to navigate the adoption process. It seems like children are being snapped up by other couples while somehow they’re being left behind. Season 2 will premiere on 21st May on Apple TV+, with episodes arriving weekly. Here’s the trailer:
Trying is available on Apple TV+, as part of a £4.99 monthly subscription, with a 7-day free trial.
