Hulu has announced a third season renewal of “Shrill,” a comedy series starring “Saturday Night Live” veteran Aidy Bryant. According to Variety, the new season will have eight total episodes.
“Shrill” follows Annie (Bryant), a woman who strives to change and shake her life up without changing the way her body looks. Taking themes of human body norms, the series challenges the status quo through the protagonist’s story. The series, created by Lindy West, Bryant, and Alexandra Rushfield, is based on West’s book, “Shrill: Notes From a Loud Woman.”
In a February interview with NPR, star and co-creator Aidy Bryant spoke on the show’s season two fruition and working in the writer’s room.
But I also think one of the things that we were doing in the writers room was talking about, you know, these specific experiences that were in Lindy’s book. And so many of them are so universal, even though the specifics might be different.
You know, I had had feelings of feeling embarrassed or shamed, or I had ordered something different because I didn’t want to be seen as a fat woman eating pizza.
Or, you know, things that Lindy specified, I was like, I have an experience just like that. And so quickly, you know, with our writers’ room, I think those universal experiences became more specific through, you know, me and Lindy and all the other writers in the room.
Aside from “Shrill,” Bryant has also appeared on “Unbreakable Kimmy Shmidt,” “Girls,” and “The Big Sick.” She continues to appear on the long-running NBC program, “Saturday Night Live.”
Season three of “Shrill” will have eight episodes. Brownstone Productions and Warner Bros Television produce the series. Season two of the series is now streaming on Hulu.
