The groundbreaking original dramedy explores universal and relatable themes of love and friendship between two best friends living in Los Angeles - in its many permutations. In season two of This Close, Kate (Stern) and Michael (Feldman) are determined to reboot their friendship. But what's that they say about best laid plans? Kate's past returns to haunt her in surprising ways as she finds her voice at work. Michael tries to walk the straight and narrow path, but everyone sees the truth except for him. With the return of old flames and distant parents, Kate and Michael are going to have to lean on each other or fall apart.
This Close is executive produced by Christine Vachon and David Hinojosa for Killer Films, Mary Pat Bentel and Paul Young, along with Stern and Feldman. Super Deluxe serves as the studio for the Sundance Now Original production.
