Apple TV+ has renewed the comedy series Loot starring Maya Rudolph and Michaela Jaé Rodriguez for season 2. Five episodes of the ten-episode season 1 have already aired.
The workplace comedy is also executive produced by Rudolph and is from Alan Yang and Matt Hubbard. The announcement was mast just as Apple TV+ set a multi-year, first-look deal with Animal Pictures, the production company run from Maya Rudolph, Natasha Lyonne and Danielle Renfrew Behrens.
“Thanks to Maya, Alan, Matt, and the entire incredibly talented Loot cast and creative team who have created a show filled with captivating and endearing characters, and hilarious and heartwarming moments throughout each episode,” said Matt Cherniss, head of programming for Apple TV+. “This show has captured the hearts of global audiences, and we can’t wait for season two.”
The series also stars Joel Kim Booster, Nat Faxon, Ron Funches and Stephanie Styles.
Here’s the official description:
In Loot, billionaire Molly Novak (Rudolph) has a dream life, complete with private jets, a sprawling mansion and a gigayacht — anything her heart desires. But when her husband of 20 years betrays her, she spirals publicly, becoming fuel for tabloid fodder. She’s reaching rock bottom when she learns, to her surprise, that she has a charity foundation run by the no-nonsense Sofia Salinas (Rodriguez), who pleads with Molly to stop generating bad press. With her devoted assistant Nicholas (Kim Booster) by her side, and with the help of Sofia and team — including mild-mannered accountant Arthur (Faxon) and her optimistic, pop-culture-loving cousin Howard (Funches) — Molly embarks on a journey of self-discovery. Giving back to others might be what she needs to get back to herself.
The show is produced by Apple by Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group
