Sundance Now has announced that star and co-creator of their highly acclaimed series This Close, Shoshannah Stern, will be taking over their Instagram account Thursday (Oct. 18) to take fans behind the scenes of the production of season two.
The series, which follows best friends Kate (Stern) and Michael (co-creator and co-star Josh Feldman) as they navigate life, love, and their careers in Los Angeles, was renewed for an eight-episode second season in April. The new season is set to premiere in 2019.
