Darby Carter’s journey has come to an end, but Love Life has only just begun.
HBO Max has renewed the romantic anthology for a second season that will focus on a “whole new love story in New York City,” it was announced Thursday. The renewal comes just hours after the last four Season 1 episodes dropped on the fledgling streaming service, which launched on May 27.

In the finale, Darby, now an overextended gallery owner and co-parent to Theo, finally met her “person,” a charming British gent by the name of Grant, at her friend Sara’s wedding.
