The Season 1 finale of ‘Kevin Can F**k Himself’ premiered on Aug. 1.

Despite the ongoing turmoil of Kevin and Allison’s marriage, Allison develops a meaningful relationship with another cast member, which is threatened in the Season 1 finale after Patty refuses Allison’s request to spy on her girlfriend, Tammy (Candice Coke).

While the two seem to be on the brink of breaking up their friendship, things get chaotic when Neal (Alex Bonifer) discovers Allison's plan to murder Kevin. He later attacks Allison, forcing his sister, Patty, to spring into action and save the day — at least, for now. Allison and Patty's onscreen chemistry is undeniable, and according to the showrunner Valerie Armstrong, the actresses also shared a bond off-camera.

"I think the moments of true happiness on this show are the ones where Allison and Patty are together," Valerie told Salon. "A constant thing I would tell Annie and Mary Hollis — I mean, I didn't really have to tell them since they're so great at their jobs — they love each other so genuinely, but it's like, 'No, you guys you're not that happy yet! You can't show you like each other, stop it!'"

Before the series was picked up, Valerie gave fans a glimpse into what they can look forward to for Season 2. She shared, "I hope [Season 2] exists! And I really love the idea of exploring Neal in single-cam, not in a way that would ever excuse what he did or forget what he did."

Along with offering a closer look at Neal’s motivations for attacking Allison, fans will also learn more about the series villain, Kevin, and his origin story as he pursues a career in politics.

A premiere date for Season 2 has not yet been shared.
