Netflix has released the new trailer and poster for Season 2 of Lady Dynamite, which will debut on November 10. This trailer also gives fans a first look at the guest stars stopping by this season, including Andy Samberg, David Spade, Fred Armisen, Jason Mantzoukas, Jenny Slate, Judd Apatow, Judy Greer and Weird Al Yankovic. Also featured briefly in the trailer for this Netflix original series is a raccoon named Randall, who series star/executive producer Maria Bamford is seen placing a bonnet on, along with Maria's real parents.
Maria Bamford returns as Maria Bamford in Season Two of the acclaimed comedy series Lady Dynamite. This season finds our precious Maria embarking on her greatest adventure ever, love. Maria will use all the wrong lessons learned in childhood as she navigates her new relationship status with family, friends and pugs. She also lands a new gig at a streaming network that may or may not be owned by Elon Musk. Also starring Ana Gasteyer ("Karen Grisham"), Fred Melamed ("Bruce Ben Bacharach"), Mary Kay Place and Ed Begley, Jr. ("Marilyn and Joel Bamford"), Mo Collins ("Susan") and Olafur Darri Olafsson ("Scott"), Lady Dynamite returns November 10.
The first season of Lady Dynamite included guest stars such as Patton Oswalt, Jon Cryer, Mira Sorvino, Brandon Routh, June Diane Raphael, Adam Pally, Dean Cain, Sarah Silverman, Lennon Parham, Bridget Everett and Tig Notaro, although there is no indication as to whether any of these guest stars from the first season will be back for Season 2. The series was co-created by Arrested Development creator Mitch Hurwitz and Pam Brady, with the creators also serving as executive producers alongside Maria Bamford. With just under a month until this new season debuts, hopefully we'll find out more details soon.
The series came to be after Arrested Development creator Mitch Hurwitz asked Maria Bamford if she had an idea for a TV series. The stand-up comedian pitched Hurwitz an idea that involved a mental breakdown, although the writing process was very slow. The show employs a non-linear narrative, to showcase the different mental states that people can go through, with Maria Bamford describing the show's narrative as, "Bloodline, with me." The show was given a 13-episode series order by Netflix in June 2015, with the first season premiering May 20, 2016, and Netflix renewing the series last July.
The final moments of the trailer also poke fun at one of Netflix's biggest hits, Stranger Things, with Maria Bamford asking her boyfriend Scott, "What kind of upside down world am I living in? Is this a Season 2 of Stranger Things?" Along with the new trailer, Netflix has also released a new poster from this upcoming season, which you can check out below. It remains to be seen if any more footage will be released before Lady Dynamite Season 2 debuts on Netflix, but in the meantime, take a look at the trailer, poster and photos below.
