“We’re so excited to bring a second season of this series to life, and give an opportunity to really shine a light on what matters most,” said showrunner John Carney. “With so much uncertainty in our current world, these stories bring truth and love to people everywhere, and I’m so appreciative to be a part of making that happen.”
Directors for season two include Carney, John Crowley (Brooklyn), Marta Cunningham (Insecure), Jesse Peretz (Girls), the duo of Celine Held and Logan George, and Andrew Rannells (Black Monday), who’s helming an episode based on a Modern Love essay he wrote for the Times.
Amazon Studios, Storied Media Group, Likely Story and The New York Times produce Modern Love. Carney exec produces with Todd Hoffman, Trish Hofmann, Anthony Bregman and the Times’ Caitlin Roper and Choire Sicha. Sean Fogel serves as producer; Daniel Jones, editor of the Modern Love column, is co-producer.
