'PEN15' Returns With Part 2 of Its Final Season

Brace yourself for moments equally as cringey, hilarious and heartbreaking.

Emmy-nominated show PEN15 returns for its series finale. The adult comedy focuses on Maya Erskine and Anna Konkle, who play their younger selves in middle school.

The trailer for the latter half of the second season follows BFFs Maya and Anna as they experience the ups and downs of girl tweenhood, from school dances to masturbating. As the comedic pair continue to make their way through the adventures of adolescence, part two tackles serious subject matters like divorce, racism and creepy, coercive “boyfriends.” The series’ final episodes capture Anna as she navigates the emotional fallout of her parents’ separation, and Maya’s layered struggle with anti-Asian discrimination, which is still prevalent today.

The underlying theme of PEN15 always rings true — even in the middle of a funeral, Maya and Anna use humor to heal and rely on one another for support. At the show’s cringey core, it is an absolute testament to the power of female friendships and what it means to be young.

Get ready for a strong dose of second-hand embarrassment — the final season of PEN15 is streaming now on Hulu. Watch the trailer below.
