Made For Love Season 2 looks to be shifting the power dynamic between Hazel and Byron. Though she is in the same horrible place, it seems being in control of her decision and knowing her goals allows her to be a victim of the circumstances. Not to mention she obviously has a plan. However, her father, Herbert (Ray Romano), is completely dependent on Byron and he is a genius, so things obviously won’t be easy for Hazel.

The comedy of Made For Love is powerfully funny being about things that really should not be funny. Season 1 had me dying when this guy kept getting his fingers chopped off. Even more serious, is the toxic and abusive relationship between Hazel and Byron. It is nothing but manipulation and manipulation. What Byron did is completely wrong, but does that justify Hazel’s actions? Personally I think it does, but it does make me pause. While maybe not always “laugh out loud” funny, the dark humor enables audiences to really reflect on relationships and themes of the series and keeps the show and unencumbered by the would-be-heavy serious themes in the show.

Made For Love Season 2 Premieres on HBO Max, with two new episodes, Thursday April 28, 2022.

Synopsis:
Based on the novel by Alissa Nutting, MADE FOR LOVE is a poignantly humorous story of modern love and divorce. Season One followed Hazel Green (Cristin Milioti), a thirty-something woman on the run after ten years in a suffocating marriage to tech billionaire Byron Gogol (Billy Magnussen), as smart as he is insufferable.

After discovering that her husband implanted a monitoring device – the Made for Love chip – in her brain, allowing him to track her, watch her and know her “emotional data,” Hazel fled to her desert hometown to take refuge with her outcast father Herbert (Ray Romano) and his synthetic partner, Diane. In the second season, in order to save her father’s life, Hazel returns to the Hub, Byron’s high-tech palace. But once inside, she and Byron both become ensnared by Gogol’s newest revolutionary (and dangerous) technology.
