Hulu recently announced that Aidy Bryant’s Shrill would be receiving a Season Two renewal. Read on for more details.

As expected as this announcement was, the news of Shrill being renewed for a second season makes us all want to jump with joy regardless. The first season led by Aidy Bryant was phenomenal and we were aching for more by the time those six episodes ran their course.

The good news is that Hulu has confirmed the show would go on. They announced earlier this week that Shrill would return for an extended season in 2020. It will only be a two-episode extension but anything extra will be received—assuming the second season is just as captivating.

Lucky for us, there’s little doubt that Aidy Bryant, Elizabeth Banks, and Lorne Michaels will completely miss the mark in season two. As for what that’ll entail, we have a few guesses.

For one, Annie (Bryant) will need to sort out her mess of a relationship with Ryan (Luka Jones). Annie has been on the fence about him and she’s at a turning point in her life, which means she could dump him altogether in search of someone better.

Annie also needs to bury the hatchet with Fran (Lolly Adefope). The two best friends got into a serious fight during the finale, leaving their friendship in doubt. Fran even ignored Annie’s frantic phone calls so there’s definitely some tension between them now.

While we can’t say exactly how their fight will be resolved, many fans are hoping they patch things over. These two characters helped build each other up in times of need and it would be a shame to see such a friendship ended because of a single squabble.

Lastly, the troll known as The Awesome (Beck Bennett) is bound to show up again. He bombarded Annie with horrible insults in season one and doesn’t appear to be stopping anytime soon, especially after the finale left him with an even bigger grudge against Annie. Then again, it’s just as possible that Annie’s troll will attempt to redeem himself by doing something noble.
