'Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce' season 2 news: Lisa Adelstein discusses Abby's difficulties; show to focus more on women


Stars of Bravo’s hit comedy drama series “Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce” share what viewers may expect in the upcoming installments and where the current second season’s storyline may be heading.

Talking to The Hollywood Reporter, lead Lisa Edelstein and Paul Adelstein, who portray on-again, off-again couple Abby and Jake, tease that as they try to give their relationship a second chance after their divorce in the freshman run, the former will continue to tell lies to their family and friends to keep their reconciliation a secret.

“Abby is particularly concerned about keeping her relationship out of the public eye for fear that she’ll be labeled a hypocrite,” said Edelstein about her character.

“There was a very clear will-they-or-won’t-they arc to season one, but now that they’ve decided to give their marriage another go, it creates a certain pressure on Abby to make sure that she’s not just getting sucked into nostalgia and that they actually have a healthy relationship that can work in the future,” she added.

The actress also revealed that Abby “very much falls apart” as they went deeper to the character’s emotions and possible complications in life.

Moreover, showrunner Marti Noxon shared that season two will focus more on women, no matter what their status are – married, divorce or in-betwee. “When women are asked now if they think they can have it all, their response is ‘I’m not even thinking about that I’m just thinking about all the things I need to do to not lose my mind,” he said.

Meanwhile, in the next episode, titled “Rule #72: It’s Never Too Late to be a Mean Girl,” Abby will have a second date with Dr. Harris. There will be some family time as well with Jo’s ex-husband coming to Los Angeles. He will be bonding with their daughters Zooey and Phoebe and celebrating the GED at the same time with a 1990s-themed prom.

“Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce” airs every Tuesday at 10 P.M. ET.
