Things We Saw Today: Shrill Is Getting a Season 2!

Aidy Bryant and Lolly Adefope hit the pool party in Hulu's Shrill.

Despite the fact that an important piece of international history is currently on fire, there has thankfully been some good news today. One of our favorite bits is that Aidy Bryant’s Shrill will be returning to Hulu for a second season.

According to Vulture, “the second season will be eight episodes instead of six, and is set for a 2020 release.” Based on Lindy West’s fantastic memoir, Shrill not only delivered multiple roles for fat women on television but asked audiences to deal with their own internalized fatphobia. Between this and Dumplin‘ there is some really good body-positive content coming out from streaming … once you get past the trash.

Here’s to more friendships, better boyfriends, and cute clothes.

  • The brilliant science fiction and fantasy Grand Master Gene Wolfe has died. He was 87. (via Boing Boing)
  • Aunt Becky and her rich husband are pleading “not guilty” to the accusations of fraud in the college scam. You do you girl, good luck with that. (via Yahoo News)
  • Laura Ingraham chose to be a disrespectful disgrace in her reporting of late rapper Nipsey Hussle’s memorial service. Many within the Black community and others are calling for her firing. While that probably won’t happen, she’s horrible for using his homegoing as an opportunity to highlight her anti-Black feelings. (via USA Today).
  • Did you miss the fate of Ed Sheeran’s character being revealed on Game of Thrones last night? Me too. (via Cosmo)
  • John Oliver enlists some of Hollywood’s greatest villains to give a dramatic reading of Richard Sackler’s deposition. It is utterly fantastic.
