Difficult People will return for its second season in Canada on shomi on July 13. New episodes will become available on the Canadian streaming service a day following their premiere on Hulu in the U.S. This season will also have ten episodes with two premiering this week.
The series stars Billy Eichner (Billy on the Street, Parks & Recreation) and Julie Klausner (you’ve probably read her TV recaps) as best friends living in New York City who are trying to make it in the comedy business. Andrea Martin and James Urbaniak are back this season as Julie’s mother and boyfriend while Cole Escola, who plays that awful Matthew, has been upped to series regular.
Gabourey Sidibe and Derrick Baskin are also back as the owners of the cafe where Billy and Matthew work. You can also look out for appearances by Joel McHale, Method Man, John Mulaney, Amy Sedaris, Debbie Harry, Rachel Dratch, Tina Fey, Nyle DiMarco, Fred Armisen, Nathan Lane and Lin-Manuel Miranda.
If you enjoy comedies like Curb Your Enthusiasm, Happy Endings and Broad City, you’ll definitely like this. You can also stream the first ten episodes of Difficult People on shomi.
