Peacock released a new trailer for the forthcoming second season of Girls5eva and Dawn (Sara Bareilles), Wickie (Renée Elise Goldsberry), Gloria (Paula Pell), and Summer (Busy Philipps) are ready to make some music… which includes riffs from Wickie’s riff rolodex!
“Season 2 of Girls5eva answers the simple question: What would happen if Girls5eva was renewed for a second season?,” asks showrunner and executive producer Meredith Scardino. “We are so excited to share the next chapter in Dawn, Wickie, Gloria, and Summer’s journey as they enter ‘Album Mode’ and embark on making their first studio album on their own terms.”
Returning for the sophmore season are Andrew Rannells, Daniel Breaker, Erika Henningsen, Janine Brito, Jeremiah Craft, as well as Jonathan Hadary Julius Conceicao. Ashley Park is also set to return — maybe her character (also named Ashley) isn’t dead after all!
The roster of guest stars is quite impressive. Amy Sedaris and Neil Flynn are set to play Summer’s parents. In addition, we will be treated to appearances by Amber Ruffin, Chad L. Coleman (The Wire), Grey Henson (Mean Girls the Musical), Heidi Gardner (Saturday Night Live), Hoda Kotb (Today), James Monroe Iglehart (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), John Lutz (30 Rock), Judy Gold (Better Things), Mario Cantone (Sex and the City), Pat Battle (NBC New York), Piter Marek (The Blacklist) and Tim Meadows (The Goldbergs) as well as Property Brothers Drew and Jonathan Scott.
Girls5eva will debut on Peacock May 5.
