Freeform Orders Single Drunk Female Season 2 & New Series While You Were Breeding; Peacock Brings Back Wolf Like Me

Single Drunk Female

Freeform has renewed breakout comedy Single Drunk Female, starring Sofia Black D'Elia and Ally Sheedy, for a second season. Additionally, the young adult brand ordered wanderlust half-hour dramedy While You Were Breeding, based on the memoir from Kristin Newman (Only Murders in the Building), to series.

Single Drunk Female has garnered critical acclaim throughout its run. The series follows 20-something alcoholic Samantha Fink, who after a public flame-out at a New York media company, is forced to seize the only chance she has to sober up and avoid jail time: moving back home with her overbearing mother, Carol. Back in Greater Boston, Samantha sets out on a path to move past her worst self and figure out her best self. Kinda. Single Drunk Female stars Sofia Black-D'Elia, Ally Sheedy, Rebecca Henderson, Sasha Compère, Lily Mae Harrington and Garrick Bernard. The series comes from 20th Television and is created by Simone Finch (The Conners), who executive produces along with Jenni Konner (Girls, Camping), Daisy Gardner (Silicon Valley, The Goldbergs), Phil Traill (Good Girls), Nora Silver and Leslye Headland (Russian Doll).

While You Were Breeding follows Kacey, single for the first time in her 30s, as she escapes her fast-paced life in Los Angeles to see the world. From culture clash to vacation romances, this internationally set dramedy is a globetrotting journey of self-discovery that will inspire the wanderlust inside everyone. The series is written by Kristin Newman and based on her best-selling memoir of the same name. Newman also executive produces along with Susanna Fogel (The Flight Attendant) and Blair Breard (Scenes from a Marriage). The pilot is directed by Becca Gleason (Summer '03). The series stars Chelsea Frei (Dollface) as Kacey, whose discovery of the joys of solo travel causes her to eschew the marriage and kids route all of her friends have taken in their 30s. (Indeed, there is no one left to travel with her!) Kacey's emotional journey starts with an epic trip with her fearless best friend from childhood, Sasha, played by Catherine Cohen (What We Do in The Shadows), a comedic force who owns every room she’s in. Alice Hunter (Another Period) is Hope, another of Kacey's friends who is a former globetrotting wild child now happily working her face off, much to her party-boy husband's dismay. And Kosha Patel (Girlboss) portrays Kacey's friend Rikita, a salt-of-the-earth non-profit lawyer, happily married to her wife and pregnant with their first child.


Wolf Like Me

Peacock announced the second season renewal of the critically acclaimed genre-bending romantic half-hour series Wolf Like Me from series creator, executive producer and director, Abe Forsythe (Little Monsters). Isla Fisher (Wedding Crashers, Definitely Maybe) and Josh Gad (Central Park, Frozen) will be reprising their roles. The renewal of Wolf Like Me joins the additional second season renewals of Peacock Original series Girls5eva, Rutherford Falls, One of Us Is Lying, We Are Lady Parts, and second season of critically-acclaimed drama series Bel-Air. Everyone brings their own set of baggage to a new relationship. Gary (Josh Gad) and Mary (Isla Fisher) are no different. Gary is an emotional wreck and struggles to provide for his daughter since the death of his wife. Mary has a secret she can't bring herself to share with anyone. The universe brought these two together for a reason, they just need to keep following the signs.
