O Hulu renewed the praised comedy series Shrill for a third season. The platform streaming ordered eight episodes, the same amount as the second season.
Starring Aidy Bryant, Shrill was developed by her, by showrunner Alexandra Rushfield and Lindy west, and inspired by the book of West Shrill: Notes from a Loud Woman.
The first season followed Annie (Bryant), a fat young woman who wants to change her life - but not her body. Annie tried to start her career while dealing with bad boyfriends, a sick father and a perfectionist boss. After facing her demons, Annie started the second season feeling very good with her boyfriend Ryan by her side. That is, until she realized that hastily quitting her job and entering into a relationship with someone who is, well, a little less career-focused may not have been the best idea. While Annie learned that it is not easy to achieve what she always imagined she wanted, she discovered that it was no longer the doormat it was before - and it is just beginning.
The second season also starred Lolly Adefope, Luka Jones, John Cameron Mitchell, Ian Owens and Patti Harrison.
The series is produced by Lorne Michaels, Elizabeth Banks, Max Handelman and Andrew Singer.
