Season 2 will focus on Marcus Watkins (William Jackson Harper) and his love stories. William tells TV Insider, "Marcus is a guy that has an idea of what he's supposed to be and an idea of what his life is supposed to look like.

In Episode 2, he meets a 22-year-old college student, Paloma (Aline Mayagoitia). He ends up hooking up with her fresh from his split with Emily.

Then in Episode 3, when he goes home to Michigan, he reunites with his former schoolmate, Destiny (Yasha Jackson). She and Marcus reminisce about their past and end up hooking up. However, Destiny is cheating on her partner with Marcus, so that connection ends up going up nowhere.

It's not yet clear who Marcus ends up with at the end of the season. There are still seven episodes in which he could meet "the one." Throughout the season, audiences will see Marcus fumble his way through his marriage split and into a new world of being single that will involve awkward hookups, promising relationships, and affairs entirely based on sex. It will be interesting to see who Marcus ends up with by the season finale.

The first three episodes of Love Life Season 2 are currently streaming on HBO Max.
