Showtime's 'SMILF' gets a Season 2

Showtime is giving its hit comedy series, "SMILF" for a Season 2. The show stars and is created today by and executive produced by Frankie Shaw. "SMILF" is a raw, honest look at the life of a 20-something single mom based on her Sundance Film Festival Jury Award-winning short film of the same name. The series also stars Rosie O'Donnell in her first series regular TV role. The first season finale will air on New Year's Eve, December 31 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. A special preview available online and On Demand on Friday, December 29.

"SMILF" debuted with the biggest premiere week audience for a new SHOWTIME comedy since 2012, and had its best total night this week since the series premiere. The series is currently averaging 4.4 million weekly viewers across platforms.

"SMILF" takes a comedic look at the life of Bridgette Bird (Shaw), a young woman from South Boston whose desires for relationships, sex, and a career collide with the realities of working-class single motherhood. Shaw brings her singular, unapologetic point of view to the semi-autobiographical comedy series, whose title is meant to be ironic and to reclaim the demeaning nature of the label. The cast also includes Miguel Gomez, Samara Weaving and Alexandra and Anna Reimer.
