The second season of the award-winning drama series about the Jewish-American Pfefferman family starts as eventfully as the first with the wedding of eldest daughter Sarah, who left her family for a woman. The day gets chaotically out of control in typical Pfefferman fashion. During the first series, head of the family Mort Pfefferman transitioned into Maura: from ‘poppa’ to ‘moppa’. Ex-wife Shelly is surprisingly relaxed about it all, as are their three adult children; besides, they all have their own problems.
The family, the brainchild of Jill Soloway, is known for being non-conformist and revealing other people’s most embarrassing secrets. Although homosexuality and transgender issues are dealt with sensitively, the series is characterised by black humour and fluid play with gender roles and societal expectations. Telling scenes from the family’s past give the characters more soul and layers. With episodes directed by Jill Soloway, Marielle Heller, Stacie Passon, Silas Howard, Jim Frohna, Andrea Arnold.
