Growing up and growing older is never easy, and trying to understand life’s changes is even more difficult. Yet, when you’ve got friends both tasks are a little easier, no matter how hard life can be. Five young adults learned that lesson in season 1 of the comedy web series THE DIGRESSIONS, created by series co-star Andrew Dahl. Its second season of 12 episodes began November 26th on its official web site and Youtube pages. Season 2 of THE DIGRESSIONS picks up where it left off in season 1: with a close group of five friends whose relationships and loyalties to each other are suddenly tested by romance. Spencer (played by Jordan McArthur), a smart, no-nonsense guy who still holds his close friends dear, including wisecracking college pal Preston (played by Dahl).

Last season, Spencer’s intention to marry a woman who’s not at all popular with his friends – including Preston, led to their once close friendship becoming strained. For the two college friends, it was a disagreement that nearly came to blows. Along with that drama, there’s the very awkward romance between Kenley (Winslow Corbett), the group’s resident therapist, and Theo (Eric Pargac), a confused yet well meaning man who finds himself infatuated with her. Rounding out the cast is Michelle (Aubrey Saverino), who’s stuck in a romance with a boyfriend who’s so nice, he’s actually dull. In addition, there are 2 new characters (to be announced) that will make season 2 even more interesting.

A series that focuses on the lives, loves and struggles of millennials born in the early ‘80s, (otherwise known as Generation Y) THE DIGRESSIONS takes a unique approach to its storytelling, emphasizing smart, intelligent writing and relatable characters. “Instead of relying on capturing a niche audience with special interests or a specific hook, we’ve focused on making three-dimensional characters people love and can’t wait to see what happens to them next. That’s why in our show you get a lot of close ups with a hand-held feel. Our show is all about conversations and we want the audience to feel like they’re a part of the conversation – or digression. They might even say, “I’ve had that exact conversation before!” There are a lot of universal struggles in your late twenties and early thirties – and we do our best to distill those and make them into something we can all laugh about together,” Dahl and McArthur say.

For season 2, viewers can expect not only hilarious comedy that made THE DIGRESSIONS popular among viewers last season, but also a more structured and clear storyline that unfolds throughout the show’s sophomore year. In addition, thanks to its successful Kickstarter campaign that raised 117% of its fundraising goal, viewers can also expect an improved quality of production. “The production of Season 2 was much more streamlined. Owning our equipment and understanding the post production process allowed us to be more efficient in our efforts – and also meant we didn’t have to re-film any of our episodes due to technical problems! With better lighting and sound, the visual quality of the show has definitely taken a step forward. We edited the episodes as we went this time, which allowed us to significantly cut down our production calendar and get new episodes out sooner,” they say.

Inspired by the often chaotic pace of daily life in New York, plus the daily struggles of young men and women to make a smooth transition into adulthood, THE DIGRESSIONS will continue to give viewers intelligent and witty humor with characters that members of Gen Y can easily identify with. Already a hit with that crowd, Dahl and McArthur hope to continue the series‘ distinct storytelling style, to attract larger audiences and to better themselves as filmmakers. As they explain: “Season 1 had a very positive response. People were excited to see a show that stripped away distractions and got right to the kernel of what makes growing up a wild, ridiculous ride. With season 2 we hope to continue to grow our audience and shine a humorous light on the difficulties and insecurities that come along with no longer being ‘young’.”
