Let’s hear it for love… or not. I am kind of a cynic when it comes to emotions, but people expect that from me.
I’ve always loved the Modern Love column and was thrilled when it became an anthology television show. And now we’ve got our first look at the second season with some pretty big stars.
Joining the anthology series in season two are Gbenga Akinnagbe, Susan Blackwell, Lucy Boynton, Tom Burke, Zoë Chao, Maria Dizzia, Minnie Driver, Grace Edwards, Dominique Fishback, Kathryn Gallagher, Kit Harington, Garrett Hedlund, Telci Huynh, Nikki M. James, Aparna Nancherla, Larry Owens, Zane Pais, Anna Paquin, Isaac Powell, Ben Rappaport, Milan Ray, Jack Reynor, Miranda Richardson, Marquis Rodriguez, James Scully, Zuzanna Szadkowski, Lulu Wilson, Don Wycherley, Sophie Okonedo, Tobias Menzies and Jeena Yi.
