Showtime has released the trailer for the second season of “Kidding,” their anti-comedy starring Jim Carrey and executive produced by Michel Gondry. Created by “Weeds” writer Dave Holstein, the first season of the half-hour series received largely positive reviews for its poignant examination of grief as told through a famous children’s television star, played by Carrey. The moving second season trailer promises plenty of creatively rendered heartache, an evocative score, whimsical cut-out animation and puppetry, and a few choice Frank Langella zingers.
Per the official synopsis: “‘Kidding’ Season 2 picks up moments after season one’s cliffhanger, and with his beloved ‘Mr. Pickles’ Puppet Time’ off the air for the first time in 30 years, Jeff Pickles (Carrey) must find a way to communicate with his many fans who still need him. Jeff creates a new and controversial method to talk directly to children across the world only to become the target of animosity for the first time in his career.”
