HBO Max revealed more about the return of the series in a press release.
“Max Original series, STARSTRUCK, from comedian Rose Matafeo and co-writers Alice Snedden and Nic Sampson, returns for a second season with all six episodes debuting THURSDAY, MARCH 24.
Hailed as a “charmer” by The New York Times, and “the breakout star of 2021” by The Guardian, Matafeo returns to play Jessie in STARSTRUCK, a millennial living in East London navigating the complications of becoming romantically involved with Tom (Nikesh Patel), a famous film star. The season two ensemble cast also includes Minnie Driver and Russell Tovey. Season one is currently streaming on HBO Max.
Logline: After her grand gesture at the end of season one, in season two, Jessie must deal with the real-world consequences of deciding to stay and pursue a relationship with Tom, rather than sticking to her original plan of returning home to New Zealand.”
