The second seasons for Sorry For Your Loss and Kerry Washington’s Five Points have received premiere dates at Facebook Watch.
Sorry For Your Loss will return on October 1, while Five Points comes back on August 5. The Jessica Biel series, Limetown, based on the podcast of the same name, begins its freshman run on October 16. Sherri Saum and Kelly Jenrette co-star.
Other originals also have return dates: Huda Boss (August 20) and Ball in the Family (which is in its fifth season, August 18).
Sorry For Your Loss stars Elizabeth Olsen and Jovan Adepo (When They See Us), featuring Olsen as Leigh Shaw, a “young widow struggling to put her life back together in the wake of her husband’s unexpected death. The show is simultaneously devastating and uplifting, with grounded, flawed characters desperate to find humor anywhere they can. The series dives into grief as an unavoidable, universal, transformative part of life. Leigh’s journey will teach us that grief is not something merely to endure, medicate away or muscle through, but an essential part of the human experience.” Kelly Marie Tran, Janet McTeer and Mamoudou Athie also star. The series has received critical acclaim for Olsen and Adepo’s performances. Olsen received a Critics Choice nomination for the show, becoming Facebook’s first major awards nomination.
Produced by Kerry Washington under her Simpson Street banner, Five Points is set on the South Side of Chicago and takes a look at high school students from five unique points of view. When a life-changing event occurs, all of these different perspectives will be necessary to understand the truth. Season 1’s diverse cast consisted of Madison Pettis, Hayley Kiyoko, Ray Cham Jr., Trey Curtis, Nathaniel Potvin, and Spence Moore II. It was directed by Thomas Carter, the director of films like Save the Last Dance and Coach Carter, and television projects such as the 2016 Roots miniseries. No word on any casting announcements and/or changes for season 2.
