About the Show
After being adored by critics in Australia and the USA, the award-winning comedy/drama Please Like Me, created by Josh Thomas, returns with a second season on Friday, August 8th at 10:30PM, only on Pivot TV.
When we last saw Josh, his girlfriend had dumped him, he’d gained and lost a boyfriend, come out to his parents, lost his eccentric great aunt, and moved back in to live with his bipolar mother after her suicide attempt. In season two, Josh tries to get through the day without upsetting anyone.
Inspired by the series, and continuing our mission to spark conversation and inspire change, we've teamed with the National Alliance of Mental Illness on Say Something, a campaign that highlights the experiences of the 1 in 4 individuals living with mental illness to help de-stigmatize the issue, and help prioritize the passing of comprehensive mental health legislation.
