Season 2 shifts the focus from Anna Kendrick's character Darby Carter to someone new. Meet Marcus Watkins (William Jackson Harper).

'Love Life' Season 2 will shine a spotlight on Marcus's search for love.

Marcus is a young divorcee, looking for genuine lasting love, just like Darby was in Season 1. His ex-wife Emily (Maya Kazan) will also appear in Season 2. Marcus will meet various potential new love interests in Season 2. If the teaser trailer is any indication, the woman who appears the most intriguing to Marcus is Mia Hines (Jessica Williams).
