PEN15Season two finally arrives in all of its painfully embarrassing glory this week, offering a much-needed mental escape into the year 2000. If you're going to see it on Hulu and crave more preventively, we're here to assure you yes, more episodes are in fact on the way. The first seven episodes hit Hulu on September 18, and the streaming service plans to release seven more sometime in 2021 once filming is safe to resume. That means we're getting 14 damn episodes in total, compared to the 10 episodes of season one – hell yeah!
To refresh your memory PEN15 made their debut in February 2019 and introduced us to the 13-year-old BFF duo Maya Ishii-Peters and Anna Kone, played by the real 30-year-olds Maya Erskine and Anna Konkle. Season one explores some of her very relatable middle school experiences, from flirting to AIM (does the real FlyMiamiBro please get up?) To wearing a classmate's stolen thong (sorry, sorry, Heather!).
Season two goes a little deeper into Anna's struggle to cope with her parents' breakup, as well as some hysterical moments for her and Maya, including a pool party, experiments with witchcraft and wrestling (separate of course), a school play, and pretty much the eventful sleep. Hulu has yet to tease what the remaining seven episodes are about, but we hope Sam can finally face his big crush on Maya.
