Despite entertainment studios being on pause right now due to COVID-19, it doesn’t feel like there’s a shortage in things to watch. We’ve had five months of this and I haven’t run out of movies and television shows. In fact, new things are being added to my list all the time. The one thing that has changed is that I don’t forget when things are premiering now because I mark it down somewhere. That is essentially how much time we have.
One series that I’m looking forward to returning this fall is PEN15. In my opinion, there isn’t another show quite like it. Actresses Maya Erskine and Anna Konkle play younger versions of themselves from middle school and it is as uncomfortable and awkward as you would imagine. They may be surrounded by younger actors and dressed up in pre-teen clothing, but at the end of the day they still remind me of adult me! The first half of season two (7 episodes) premieres on Hulu September 17th.
