Hulu has set the US premiere date for Season 2 of the awesome Aussie drama Love Me.
Love Me is such a wonderful drama, I wholeheartedly recommend it. Season 1 launched in the US just about a year ago on Hulu, where it’s currently streaming.
The series is based on the acclaimed Swedish drama Love Me (Älska mig), which is also available for streaming in the US, but on a different SVOD service. I’ve watched this version, too, and adore it equally as much.
In the first season of the Australian version, members of the Mathieson family — patriarch Glen (Hugo Weaving, The Matrix, The Hobbit), his 30-something daughter, Clara (Bojana Novakovic, Instinct, Rake), and her younger brother, Aaron (William Lodder, Wakefield, Bali 2002) — find themselves on a road they hadn’t thought they would be on after the death of wife and mother Christine (Sarah Peirse, Under the Vines).
Glen meets, falls in love with, and marries Anita (Heather Mitchell, The Unusual Suspects, A Place to Call Home) after meeting her while on a holiday that was meant for him and Christine. Clara begins a relationship with male model Peter (Bob Morley, The 100, Home and Away), which goes swimmingly until it doesn’t. And Aaron experiences a bump in his relationship with his girlfriend, Ella (Shalom Brune-Franklin, The Tourist, Bad Mothers), while realizing his feelings for his friend, Jesse (Mitzi Ruhlmann (Reckoning, The Code).
In Season 2, Glen, Clara, and Aaron each grapple with a new reality that poses the challenging question: Is love enough?
Glen and Anita are faced with the arrival of someone from her past, who will threaten their current happiness and security. Clara must come to terms with becoming a stepparent to Peter’s son, as well as the very real prospect that her hopes of having a family of her own may never be realized. And Aaron’s attempts to juggle fatherhood, Ella, and his love for Jesse send him into a spiral of self-doubt and erratic behavior.
Love Me: Season 2 premieres in the US on Friday, April 21, exclusively on Hulu.
