Actress Aidy Brant may be seen on your tv each week as a member of the SNL cast, but for the last few years she’s been starring in a groundbreaking series on Hulu. In the first two seasons of the comedy series, Shrill, Brant has introduced audiences to Annie, a new type of leading lady: a smart and capable fat woman who doesn’t attempt to shrink herself or her voice regardless of the personal and societal challenges she faces. And she’s not the only “shrill” character in the series, Annie surrounds herself with other powerful and passionate women, including her unabashedly queer and outspoken roommate Fran (Lolly Adefope).
The third and final season of Shrill is set to premiere on May 7th on Hulu, but in the meantime you can check out the trailer below.
Season three of Shrill finds Annie (Aidy Bryant) energized by her breakup with dud boyfriend Ryan and her newfound momentum at work. Annie feels like everything is finally falling into place for her, but does she actually know how to get what she wants? Along with SNL‘s Aidy Bryant, Shrill stars Lolly Adefope, Ian Owens, John Cameron Mitchell, E.R. Fightmaster and Patti Harrison.
Watch the first two seasons of Shrill on Hulu now, and don’t miss the season premiere on May 7 2021.
