The HBO comedy series “Divorce” starring Sarah Jessica Parker will return for its second season in January.

In the series, which premiered last October, Parker plays Frances Dufresne, a married woman who has an affair and finds herself being sued for divorce by her husband Robert (Thomas Haden Church). As Frances begins to reassess her life and her marriage, she finds that making a clean break and a fresh start is harder than she thought.

Season two finds Frances and Robert dealing with the aftermath of their explosive separation and learning to rebuild their lives.

Parker’s role led her to be nominated for a Golden Globe award for best actress in a Television Series Musical or Comedy.  Church earned an Oscar nomination for his role in “Sideways” and was most recently seen as the villain Sandman in “Spider-Man 3”.

The show also stars Molly Shannon, Talia Balsam, Tracy Letts, Sterling Jerins and Charlie Kilgore.

The series was created by Sharon Horgan. Season two is executive produced by Jenny Bicks, Parker, Sharon Horgan, Alison Benson and Aaron Kaplan.

The first season of “Divorce” is now streaming on HBO GO via AIS PLAY and AIS PLAYBOX.
