“From its first episode, the refreshingly honest point of view of ‘SMILF’ broke through with audiences, the press and on social media,” said Gary Levine, president of programming for Showtime. “Frankie Shaw is a creative force to be reckoned with and we love having her on Showtime. Her show is funny and forthright, pointed and poignant, irreverent and relevant, all at once. We can’t wait to see where Frankie takes ‘SMILF’ next season.”

The series follows the life of Bridgette Bird (Shaw), a young woman from South Boston whose desires for relationships, sex and a career collide with the realities of working-class single motherhood.

Shaw created the series in addition to starring in the lead role. Rosie O’Donnell co-stars as her mother. The cast also includes Miguel Gomez, Samara Weaving, and Alexandra and Anna Reimer.
