PEN15 Season 2 Premiere | “Pool”
Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) and Emily Fox (@emelette) are heading back to school with Emily’s lifelong best friend Leigh McLaren to talk about Hulu’s “PEN15.”
Created by Maya Erskine and Anna Konkle, “PEN15” stars Erskine and Konkle as 13-year-old best friends Maya Ishii-Peters and Anna Kone as they navigate the highs and lows of middle school in the year 2000. The catch: they are the only adults playing kids; the rest of the kids are played by … well, kids!
The Hulu comedy debuted the first seven episodes of its second season on September 18. The millennial trio of Josh, Emily and Leigh will tackle one episode per week for the next several weeks, reliving their own childhood trauma alongside Maya and Anna.
Today: the season premiere! Josh, Emily and Leigh party on by the “Pool,” the first episode of season two. In their discussion, the PEN15 Pals play a game of MASH, talk about Nair, debate the veracity of hot cheetos in the early 2000s, relive Emily and Leigh’s coordinated dance routines, and much more.
New episodes post on Sundays. Send feedback to email@example.com.
