Sundance Now Orders Second Season of Dramedy ‘This Close’

Eight New Episodes Ordered

Sundance Now, AMC Networks’ premium video streaming service, announced the greenlight of season two of its original relationship dramedy, “This Close.” The series is created, written and stars Shoshannah Stern and Josh Feldman — two real life best friends, both of whom are deaf. “This Close” will begin production on its eight-episode second season in summer 2018 in Los Angeles. 
 
“We are immensely proud of ‘This Close’ and could not have asked for a better reception to the series’ first season from both the press and our Sundance Now members,” commented Jan Diedrichsen, General Manager of SundanceTV and Sundance Now. “Greenlighting the show’s second season was the easiest decision we’ve ever made, and we cannot wait to see where Josh and Shoshannah take Michael and Kate’s stories.”
 
“This Close,” Sundance Now’s first straight-to-series order, explores the relationship between 20-something-year-old best friends Kate (Stern) and Michael (Feldman) as they navigate love, loss, careers, friendship, and life in LA.
