HBO Max’s “Love Life” is following a new lead for its second season, shifting the focus from the romantic stories of Darby Carter (Anna Kendrick) to Marcus Watkins (William Jackson Harper). In the first trailer for Season 2, we get a sneak peek at just how different two people’s experiences can be, when Marcus’ story kicks off with the breakup of his marriage.
“It feels very divorce-y in here,” Marcus’ friend (played by Chris “Comedian CP” Powell) says when he comes to visit him in his new apartment post-split.
“That’s because I got a divorce,” Marcus deadpans. “No, no, no, it feels like I got the divorce. Like when I walked in it got on me, like it’s in me,” Powell jokes.
Watch the “Love Life” Season 2 trailer via the video above to find out where things are headed for Marcus as he tries to shake off this divorce cloud hanging over him.
Per HBO Max, the second season of “Love Life” follows Marcus Watkins “after his marriage unexpectedly implodes.” He is then “forced to rebuild his life brick by brick, hoping to find a love that will last, once and for all.”
