Flack fans in America will finally get to see season two. The Anna Paquin comedy series was cancelled by Pop TV when the cable channel decided to get out of the original scripted television business. The second season had already been produced and Amazon Prime Video picked it up but hadn’t announced plans to release the final episodes in the United States, until now.
Prime Video revealed more about the new season of Flack in a press release.
“The official trailer for season two of Flack is available now. Amazon Prime Video will premiere all six episodes of season two on June 11, 2021 on Prime Video in the US and Canada.
Created and written by Oliver Lansley, Flack is equal parts drama and comedy set in a world of high-stakes public relations and shows the dark underbelly of cleaning up clients’ messes. Anna Paquin plays Robyn – a flack – who’s a sharp and witty publicist and an expert at her craft, but is completely self-sabotaging when it comes to her personal life. This season, Mills Paulson PR finds itself dealing with its usual fill of showbiz scandals, managing models, promoting politicians and wrangling off-the-rails television presenters. No scandal is left unturned.
Season two picks up from the events of the season one finale which saw Robyn’s work and home life collide catastrophically when she could no longer resist the temptations of her myriad of addictions. She has sacked PR intern Melody (Rebecca Benson, The White Princess) – for her own good – but closer relationships could be damaged beyond repair. Will Eve (Lydia Wilson, Requiem) ever forgive Robyn, and on a broader scale, will Mills Paulson PR ever be the same again? Their boss Caroline (Sophie Okonedo, Chimerica) has bigger fish to fry in a shakeup that could change her business forever. Throughout all this, the team will continue to keep the outrageous indiscretions of their celebrity clients firmly behind closed doors.
Season two also welcomes guest stars Sam Neill (Jurassic Park and Peaky Blinders), Daniel Dae Kim (Lost, Hawaii 5.0), Martha Plimpton (The Good Wife), Jane Horrocks (Absolutely Fabulous), Doon Mackichan (Smack the Pony), Kevin Bishop (In the Long Run) and Paul Ready (Motherland). Stephen Moyer directs Episode 5 & 6. Arinze Kene, Marc Warren and Amanda Abbington return as guest stars.”

What do you think? Are you a fan of Flack? Do you plan to watch season two on Amazon?
I love the show. Great character development. Writing excellent, amazing, right on for female representation. Very honest, entertaining. I love the actors!!! Olie you are awesome!
I’m in love with this show the characters are awesome the charisma is beyond reproach I could watch it continuously I love it
Quick, smart, and funny with that lovely dark side. It walks the dark edge like broken glass but offers some hope to keep it from the abyss. I really hope they bring back a season 3. This is the first show in a year that I didn’t glance at my phone but was pulled in.
Can’t believe the show is cancelled. They should really consider bringing it back. It is awesomely dark and well written.
We liked the show and are disappointed that there will be no season 3.
Yes Yes Yes! It’s great entertainment – Love it! But why only 6 episodes ?!? I’m ready for more…
By far the best series in years. Funny, dark, heartbreaking and heart warming. Shows the dark core of human nature which you may uncomfortably recognize as reflecting your dark side or of someone you know.
WORST SHOW EVER!!
Just started watching this amazing show last and finished it by morning! It’s truly addicted! Can’t wait for season 2!
Season 2 is just as amazing FYI! Go binge it if you haven’t already!
Truly the underbelly of PR with its deadline driven frenetic scramble. Great cast with excellent timing and chemistry. Can’t wait till June 11th! Welcome back Flack
Yes the chemistry is literal magic
Hopefully she’ll make her real comeback soon.
Whom are you referring to? Who’s she & are you talking about “whoever she is” making real life comeback or the character herself making a comeback because although either scenario would fit I suppose depending on your objective opinion of “her” acting? As far as I’m concerned this is an amazing “comeback” for EVERY. actress on this show.
