Season 2 of 'PEN15' Is Happening: Here's What Maya and Anna Want It to Be About


Hulu's PEN15 is the best show of the year (don't @ me). The cringey yet heartfelt comedy series is basically like looking in a mirror for any adult woman who spent 2000 in the seventh grade. PEN15 perfectly digs into the uncomfortableness and awkwardness of middle school — bowl cuts, AIM screen names, and first boyfriends included. 

Yet perhaps most surprisingly of all, show creators Maya Erskine and Anna Konkle are 31-year-olds who play 13-year-old versions of themselves, alongside a cast of actual tweens. And the result is not as jarring as one would expect — in fact, it's absolutely delightful.
