HBO has promoted Mrs. Fletcher as a “limited series” which, by definition, means that there are a set number of episodes. In this case, it seems like it may actually be a “mini-series” which is conceived as a one-season story. Still, if the ratings are good enough, perhaps there could be a second season of Mrs. Fletcher, ala Big Little Lies. Stay tuned.
A comedic series that’s based on the novel by Tom Perrotta, Mrs. Fletcher stars Kathryn Hahn and Jackson White with Owen Teague, Katie Kershaw, Domenick Lombardozzi, Cameron Boyce, Jen Richards, and Casey Wilson. The show is a dual coming-of-age story that chronicles the personal and sexual journeys of an empty-nest mother and her college freshman son. Eve Fletcher (Hahn) is a single mother in her 40s who works as the executive director of a senior center. She drops off her only child at college and returns home to a very empty house. Meanwhile, Eve’s son Brendan (White), a popular (though sometimes clueless) jock, finds that college is a little more complicated than he expected. .
