Love

Love

Judd Apatow’s Love returns to Netflix on Fri 10 March for its second series. The story follows two very different characters, Mickey and Gus as the pair struggle with life, love and work. Season one followed the complicated romance between them as they cross paths at pivotal points in their lives. The second series shows Mickey and Gus facing commitment and all that comes with it as they attempt to bring order to their lives. The show is based in part on the show’s creators Paul Rust and Lesley Arfin but whilst they are now married, they say this does not guarantee a happy ending for their on-screen counterparts. Paul Rust stars as Gus alongside Gillian Jacobs as Mickey.
