Based on blogger Lindy West's memoir, Shrill follows Annie, a fat young woman who wants to change her life - but not her body. Annie is trying to make it as a journalist while juggling bad boyfriends, sick parents, and a perfectionist boss, while the world around her deems her not good enough because of her weight. She starts to realize that she's as good as anyone else, and acts on it.
Hulu announced today that Shrill has been picked up for a third season. The good news comes two months after the comedy's sophomore run, which continued to garner its share of critical praise.
Based on Lindy West's book, Shrill: Notes from a Loud Woman, the half-hour series stars Saturday Night Live alum Aidy Bryant, who executive produces and writes as well. Bryant plays Annie, a full-figured woman looking to change things up in her life - just not her body. She's more interested in earning the respect of her perfectionist boss, finding the right boyfriend, and getting along with her judgemental mother and sick father.
The streaming service has ordered another eight episodes for Season 3 of Shrill, matching the length of Season 2. Look for a return in 2021.
