What have the stars said about Feel Good season two?

Mae Martin opened up to Digital Spy ahead of season two, explaining the story had ramped up since viewers last saw George and Mae. "I think that a lot of the things that preoccupied Mae in season one, like addiction, and falling in love with George, and pressuring George to come out and, you know, feeling quite victimised by that situation – I think those things were convenient distractions, as well as legitimate stresses that were distracting from a deeper pain."

She added: "And so in season two, with a more solid foundation, they're forced to look at those things more soberly, and in the light of day. So a lot of stuff starts bubbling up."

When is Feel Good season two out?

Feel Good season two arrives on Netflix on June 4. You can catch up with series one on All 4.
