William Jackson Harper has been set as the new lead of Love Life, HBO Max’s rom-com anthology series. Anna Kendrick was the lead of the first season and will still appear in the series in some capacity.

Set in New York City, the second season of the show will focus on Harper’s character, who “comes out of a years-long relationship with the woman he thought was going to be his person. The rug pulled out from under him, he is plunged back into the search for the romantic fulfillment that he thought he had already found.”

Additional casting announcements are expecting to be announced at a later date as the supporting cast fills out.

Love Life was HBO Max’s first original scripted series when it launched earlier this year.

Harper is fresh off of the final season of The Good Place. He also recently wrapped his role in Barry Jenkins’ The Underground Railroad.
