Cringe-worthy Hulu sitcom PEN15 debuted its first season in February of this year. Set in the year 2000, it was written and directed by Maya Erskine, Anna Konkle, and Sam Zvibleman, with Erskine and Konkle serving as the show’s stars in the role of their middle school selves. Actors Erskine and Konkle play alongside are middle school-aged.
This adds to the comedy and underscores how the main characters feel like outsiders in the middle school world. Pen15’s popularity and appreciation have grown significantly over the past few years since its debut (including some coveted Emmy nominations). Season 2 of Maya and Anna’s Everyday Adventures was much anticipated following season 1.
The second half was released on September 20, 2021; this time, it was an entire season. There’s even talk of the third season of this funny program, even though Season 2 has yet to be released. Here’s all we currently know about the film, from its release date and cast to its plot.

PEN15 Season 3 Plot
Regarding 13-year-old issues, PEN15 has done an excellent job of addressing many of the problems that many of us previously dealt with. More will come as long as the main characters are still in 7th grade. At the end of the first part of Season 2, both friends were in difficulty. During a school performance, Maya’s co-star Gabe (Dylan Gage) dumped her.
The decision to live with one of her parents after their divorce is a big one for Anna, who has been dealing with it all along. In the second part of season 2, Erskine and Konkle told Harper’s Bazaar that a new set of circumstances would be presented to the characters. ‘They’re going through a new cycle of firsts,’ said Konkle. There were many firsts in the inaugural season.
All the firsts have finally been repaid with this seven-episode run. You get the impression that they’re trying to figure out who they are. What exactly is it that I’m looking at here? No, I’m not a teen anymore. ‘Are you kidding me?’ inquired the youngster. After that, it’s like, “OK, I’m a teen now.” Here are some of my very firsts. “‘I can handle anything now,'” he said.
Season 3 features “blowbacks” of these forthcoming events based on the upcoming episodes’ new experiences. A third season after the show’s storyline concludes in 7th grade could see its focus change to the next grade level. As with everything else we’ve seen, whatever happens with PEN15 will almost certainly be embarrassing, humorous, and touching.”
PEN15 Season 3 Cast
If season 3 of the Pen15 television series were to be produced, the central characters would return. Although there is no official word on it, Pen15 season 3 is more likely to feature the cast and characters listed below. Check out the list:
- Maya Erskine in the role of Maya Ishii Peters.
- Anna Konkle in the role of Anna Kone.
- Mutsuko Erskine as Yuki Ishii Peters.
- Richard Karn in the role of Fred Peters.
- Taylor Nicholas in the role of Curtis Kone.
- Melora Walters in the character of Kathy Kone.
There are rumors that the second half of Season 2 will feature more mature content. So, we should expect the series to add more experienced performers.
PEN15 Season 3 Release Date
On September 18, 2020, Hulu’s streaming service debuted the second season of Pen15. There are only seven episodes, each lasting between 27 and 29 minutes. In season 2, the producers only broadcast half the episodes. Early in 2021, you’ll be able to watch the remainder of them. The eighth episode of season two, “Jacuzzi,” will be an animated episode in which Maya and Anna travel to Florida with the latter’s father.

According to a Hulu blurb, Anna and Maya encounter fresh, terrible concerns while on vacation with Curtis. Even though the females try to ignore them, a supernatural turn makes them impossible to forget. PEN15 on Hulu is ending after just two seasons. According to a Hulu representative, Pen 15 Season 2, which finished airing its final batch of episodes on December 3, will now be the program’s final season.
Insiders informed The Hollywood Reporter that Konkle and Erskine were prepared to take a break from the project even though they had been working on the show that would become PEN15 for almost ten years. Additionally, they recently had their first offspring: Konkle’s daughter Essie Wunderle Anfanger was born in early 2021, and Leon Frederick, Erskine’s son, was born in May.
The story of Maya and Anna isn’t over; other sources claim that Hulu is highly interested in doing more seasons of PEN15 if Erskine and Konkle return to the story at some point. However, it’s preferable to put the adolescent anguish of middle school behind us and return to the typical discomfort of adults for the time being. The special animated episode, written by Konkle, will be available on Hulu on August 27 for you to see.
