Netflix has released the trailer for the upcoming second and final season of Feel Good, and the show is picking up right where it left off.
According to Netflix, this second season follows Mae and Georgie as “Mae struggles to come to terms with the ghosts from her past and Georgie tries to reinvent her present. Can they grow together or will they grow apart?”
The first season of the semibiographical Feel Good introduced us to comedian Mae Martin, and we instantly fell in love with the show’s darkly comedic depiction of life as a gender nonconforming queer person. This is a show that isn’t afraid to show us messy and imperfect queer characters and we love them for it. Ever since the first season ended we’ve been dying for a continuation, and now we’re finally getting it!
The second season starts with Mae checking into rehab after last season’s relapse. But the Mae we know and love is, unfortunately, far from perfect and is quick to get back into trouble and fall back into their destructive behaviors. Will this be the season they get their shit together?
Maybe they won’t, because the next thing we see is Martin visiting their ex, Georgie (Charlotte Ritchie), and finding out she’s seeing someone new. This sets Mae off on an adventure of drugs, drinking, and stand up comedy.
The second season also promises a deeper exploration of Martin’s gender identity. “I don’t actually identify as a woman these days,” Martin says in the trailer. When their friend asks, “what do you identify as,” Martin replies in their typical deadpan way, “kind of like an Adam Driver or a Ryan Gosling.” This is the gender-based humor we want!
It comes after Martin opened up to the world offscreen about their gender. In April, Martin came out as a nonbinary in a moving post.
"The way I feel about my gender identity is ongoing and evolving, and it's personal, but I thought it might be good to say for clarity in case anyone finds it helpful — I'm nonbinary," they wrote. "I'm very bisexual and attracted to people of all genders."
Feel Good season 2 also features Lisa Kudrow, Philip Burgers, and Adrian Lukis. Anthony Head, Jordan Stephens, John Ross Bowie, Eleanor Matsuura, and Eve also join the cast.
Feel Good season 2 premieres all episodes on Netflix on Friday, June 4.
