Playing House Returns For Season 2: New Laughs & A New Way To Watch

Playing House

The sun rose with an even sunnier glow this morning; because America’s most hilarious TV show is back tonight! I will say this with a complete lack of bias, but Playing House is the best comedy currently on TV … and possibly ever. Of course, I’ve written several times about my love for Playing House, including an impassioned plea for the show’s renewal, and thankfully, the Gods (and the decision-makers at USA Network) listened. Season 2 of the series — written by, produced by and starring real-life best friends Lennon Parham and Jessica St. Clair — finds childhood besties Maggie and Emma elbow-deep in motherhood as they co-raise Maggie’s infant daughter.

In Season 1, the critical darling struggled to find a mass audience, although it developed a fiercely loyal fan base, nicknamed “Jammers,” who rabidly demanded the show’s second installment. This season, Playing House will experiment with a unique distribution model, which will allow fans to watch episodes via On Demand the week before they air on USA Network.

The comedy also stars Keegan-Michael Key, Brad Morris, Zach Woods and Jane Kaczmarek. Season 2 will feature guest appearances from Drew and Jonathan Scott, stars of HGTV’s Property Brothers, who will appear as themselves as they remake Maggie’s post-baby body into the “hottest property on the market,” and singer-songwriter Kenny Loggins, who will play himself in the season finale.
