Kat Dennings and her co-stars of Dollface shop for well, personal items, in a trailer just dropped. The second season of the Hulu streaming show is set to premiere on February 11. If the trailer is any indication, it looks like the show is prepared to up the raunch and weirdness. Dollface stars Kat Dennings as Jules Wiley, a Los Angeleno in the midst of a life crisis. Along with friends played by Brenda Song, Shay Mitchell and Esther Povitsky, she tries to navigate being an aging young adult in an increasingly weird world. It’s a pretty fun show, and a new season is worth looking forward to.
Check out the trailer here:
In the trailer for the new season of Dollface, we begin with Jules (Kat Dennings) once again considering the weirdness of aging and a hint that a COVID quarantine might be addressed. At the very least, there’s a pointed joke about just how many houseplants she seems to have. Dollface seems to indicate that it’s going to lean heavy into the raunch and fantasy sequences that made the first season fun, which is a plus. In particular, multiple appearances by a genial cat-headed woman voiced by character actor Beth Grant make it seem like we’re in for more episodes like the Wizard of Oz homage of the season one finale. For her part, Dennings seems to be doing pretty well with a new show and her engagement to musician Andrew WK last year. Good for her!
The Kat Dennings-led series was created by showrunner Jordan Weiss. It is produced by Hollywood A-Lister Margot Robbie, who has taken on a bigger producing role along with starring in many major projects. It seems unlikely that she’ll join Dennings in Dollface as an actress though, since the star is so busy these days. In addition to signing with Warner Bros for another three DC films, Robbie has moved into producing, big time. Aside from her popular role as the live-action Harley Quinn, she also produced the critically praised I, Tonya, Birds of Prey and Promising Young Woman. The latter was nominated for a slew of awards, and won an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay. Now, Margot Robbie is producing Dollface.
In addition to starring in Dollface, Kat Dennings has a great deal of experience on TV. One of her earliest roles was on the sitcom Raising Dad with the late Bob Saget and Oscar-winner/workout champ Brie Larson. She also starred for six years on CBS’ popular 2 Broke Girls. She’s using her sitcom experience in her raunchy new comedy series for Hulu, but that isn’t the only job she’s had lately. More recently, she was a primary supporting role on the Disney+ series WandaVision. There have been rumors that her Marvel character Darcy Lewis is being considered for her own spinoff show. Considering that Marvel Studios seems to be going all-in on streaming shows like Ms. Marvel, The Book of Boba Fett and The Mandalorian, it seems like a realistic notion.
