The cable comedy will return for Season 2.
January 13, 2020
Showtime announced today during their TCA presentation that Work in Progress has been picked up for a second season. The good news comes near the end of the comedy's freshman run, which concludes later this month.
The new half-hour series premiered in December and has been met with a healthy amount of praise from both critics and viewers. Co-created and written by Abby McEnany, the show follows Abby, who is played by McEnany in a semi-autobiographical role, as a 45-year-old self-identified fat, queer dyke with OCD whose despair and bad luck unexpectedly finds her in a new and vibrantly-transformative relationship with a young trans guy.
No return date has been set for Season 2 of Work in Progress, but it could drop late this year or early in 2021. For now, the show has two episodes remaining in Season 1, with the season finale set for January 26.

This show is more of a study on OCD than it is on sexuality. All the characters could have been straight and it still would have had the same plot points. Abby makes everything about herself and is unable to move beyond that. It's quite tragic but yet blends comedy and absurdity into each episode. It will be interesting to see where it leads in season two.

I watched the first three episodes. The bathroom episode was the last. The hypocrisy and double standards are so blatant I could not stand it anymore. The main character is nothing but a spoiled entitled brat. She intentionally dresses to appear as much like a man as possible (in her own words proud to be a "queer dyke") and then throws a literal 2 year old-like temper tantrum when ladies in the restroom question her gender! Woe is me!!! I am so mistreated by society!!! All this while she and her boyfriend have no respect for others sensibilities (making out in a public bus, using loud, profane and vulgar language in public). She expects everyone to tolerate her but has little to no tolerance for others beliefs. I have relatives who are gay, married and have adopted a child. They are good Christian people who don't act at all like the characters in this show do, and I am very thankful for it.

Okay..well... Initially.. the premise alone would get me to not watch this show. Just not my thing and I am rarely if ever interested in LGBT issues. I could not possibly care less. But.. I was working and watching Shameless/Ray Donovan.... this happened to follow and I was busy and didn't bother reaching to change channels... But I WOULD have the moment it got too "gay". I didn't. And this has followed suit every week. I was close when there was going to be a sex scene, but the way it was handled was very smart - blacked out room, just audio of mishaps.... So.. yeah it's not drop down hilarious. But it does have its funny moments... and they was it has unfolded, unlike many "shove it in your face " LGBT shows.. this one... is actually written with the "get used to it" mentality taking a back seat. It's simply a story where character happen to be gay... it's not a "GET WOKE!!!!!!" story. Now.. is it scheduled in my DVR? Nope. Wont' be. But I'll catch it when it's on if they keep Shameless and Ray Donovan in front of it.

Love this show - great to see life from other peoples perspective. I agree there is a lot of anger and rage in Abby the main character but also a lot of love and humour. Happy for this and for fans of the show!

I made it through 5 minutes of this garbage. Neither funny nor interesting. Just off-putting.

The strangest of the strange
The lamest of the lame
An unfunny comedy?

WOW! Tried to watch this show a couple of times but was really put off by all of the anger, hate and rage the main character seems to embody.
