Fan favorite and Emmy-winning HBO Max comedy Chop is coming back for a second season and a new trailer released on Thursday teases what to expect. Over the course of about 30 seconds, the trailer features quick shots that show a whole range of character emotions – and lots of dancing – set to the tune of Mama Cass singing “Make Your Own Kind of Music.” Chop Season 2 is scheduled to land on HBO Max on May 12th.
The show follows Deborah Vance (Jean Smart), an aging Las Vegas stand-up comedian who works with young writer Ava Daniels (Hannah Einbinder) to find common ground between generations.
In Polygon’s review of Chop In Season 1, Joshua Rivera praised the show’s ability to hide dramatic moments in low-key scenes. “The show isn’t always successful — Ava feels obligated and dull compared to Deborah Vance’s ease enhanced by Jean Smart’s performance,” he wrote. “But how could Deborah not be like that? You only yell at a doctor like she does when you know why doctors don’t take you seriously and what can happen if you don’t force them to.”
