First Look at Season 2 of ‘Sort Of’ Teases a ‘Season of Love’
There will be a second season of Sort Of on HBO Max after its successful premiere in 2021. The next episodes of the Peabody-winning comedy, which follows Sabi Mehboob (Baig) as she explores her non-binary identity and navigates cultural expectations, will all be about “love,” the show’s co-creators and co-showrunners Bilal Baig and Fab Filippo disclose to ET.
Baig and Filippo told ET that they can’t wait to share the next chapter of Sabi’s journey, and the progress of all of our characters, with their viewers following the “unbelievably wonderful response” to their first season.
In Season 2, “Sort Of,” “love” is in the air. When it comes to feelings of love, there are many different kinds of feelings. Baig continues, “There are so many people I care about… Love is complicated no matter what form it takes, and Sabi is searching for pure and uncomplicated love.
Soon, Sabi is bitten by the love bug and decides that they are not only ready for a simple romantic relationship, but they also want everyone else to feel the same way they do.
Paul Bauer (Gray Powell) and his children Violet and Henry Kaneko-Bauer (Kaya Kanashiro and Aden Bedard) had to deal with their father’s surprise return from Dubai, as well as difficulties at Bar Bük, with Bessy Kaneko’s (Grace Lynn Kung) release from rehab and other concerns.
So, Sabi finds herself in situations and relationships that are far from straightforward. The Handmaid’s Tale star Amanda Brugel joins the cast this season as Gaia, a doyenne of the art world and mother to 7ven (Amanda Cordner), who is well-known for bringing chaos into her child’s world.
Becca Blackwell’s character Deenzie’s daughter Wolf is played by Raymond Cham Jr. (The Big Leap). Scott Thompson (The Kids in the Hall) will play Bryce, a wealthy investor, and potential business partner.
Aqsa, Raffo, and Olympia will all be back for First Look at season 2, as well Ellora Patnaik and Supinder Wraith, as well as newcomer Cassandra James.
