Watch a trailer for 'Kevin Can F**k Himself's' final season ahead of its August premiere on AMC.
When trying to kill your husband doesn't yield the results you want (i.e. he lives), what's a woman to do but flee? That's where the second and final season of Kevin Can F**k Himself finds its protagonist Allison McRoberts (Annie Murphy) when it premieres Aug. 22, as you can see from the just-released trailer below.
Her friend and neighbor Patty (Mary Hollis Inboden) warns her not to do anything stupid, so she takes her Google search for how to fake her own death to the public library where it should be less traceable back to her, but of course that goes according to comedic plan and only gives her a sensitive content warning, rather than real answers.
Allison isn't in this plan alone, as she has Patty by her side. Unfortunately, Neil (Alex Bonifer) is also aware of what she wants to do to her husband, and at the end of the first season, he threatened to bring the information to light. This may require Allison and Patty to set him up before Allison skips town — if she can skip town. The trailer also teases her falling into a freshly-dug grave.
Set in Worchester, Mass., Kevin Can F**k Himself follows the life of a woman television audiences only got glimpses of in the past: the prototypical sitcom wife. In scenes set in her husband's point of view, everything is brightly lit, punctuated by a laugh track, and played out for an audience beyond the fourth wall. Allison is also relegated to stereotypical concerned behavior while her husband, Kevin (Eric Petersen) hams it up with his family and friends.
However, as the first season quickly revealed, that was only one part to this story, and things would take a darker turn when following Allison beyond the kitchen doors into a single-camera, moodily-lit dramatic format where she can finally be seen as a fully-fleshed out individual. It is there that she gets to know and bonds with Patty, and it is there that those characters, as well as the audience, have to grapple with the realities of what they are being asked to laugh at in the other format. Now, they will scramble to deal with Kevin and Neil together.
The series also stars Brian Howe, Raymond Lee, Jamie Denbo, and Candice Coke, with Erinn Hayes guest-starring in the final season.
Valerie Armstrong created and executive produces alongside Rashida Jones, Will McCormack, showrunner Craig DiGregorio, Sean Clements, and Colin Walsh.
Kevin Can F**k Himself will also stream its first two episodes on AMC+ on Aug. 22. Season 1 has a Metascore of 65. The second season has not yet been made available for review.
