Moreover, on August 27, 2021, AMC renewed the series for a second season as the show was renewed by the network in August for a second run after a strong first season, which was the most-watched series on AMC+ and popular with young, upscale, and female-skewing viewers.
Dan McDermott, president of original programming for AMC Networks and AMC Studios, said, “It’s Kevin’s world, Allison’s just living in it. Or is she? This series was built on a novel and unique concept, and the creative team on both sides of the camera, led by Valerie and Annie, delivered a highly entertaining first season that really got people talking and rooting for the sitcom wife as never before. We are excited to see this talented team move from the finale’s cliffhanger and continue Allison’s journey, pushing the bounds of conventional storytelling every step of the way.”
On November 30, 2021, AMC confirmed the series would conclude after two seasons.

Kevin Can F**K Himself Season 2 Plot
According to Deadline, the first season, which alternates between single-camera dark drama and multi-camera humor, chronicled the life of Allison McRoberts (Murphy), a character we all thought we knew growing up: the archetypal Sitcom Wife. She is attractive and funny, even though she generally gets the short end of the stick. And because she looks the way she does and he’s amusing, she is married to Kevin (Eric Peterson), a man who must have won the marriage jackpot. By using volleying camera settings, the series defied television tradition and allowed viewers to witness what transpired when cameras followed Allison beyond her husband’s home and when she eventually realized—and rebelled against—the inequities in her life.
Additionally, Anna Dokoza and Valerie Armstrong collaborated on the season one finale episode, which was simply titled “Fixed.” A projected 0.337 million US viewers saw it after its August 1, 2021 debut. The viewers saw that in the episode, Nick had been put in a coma, and it was revealed that Kevin shot him during the break-in. Kevin makes the decision to run for local politics after receiving appreciation from the locals for his deeds.
By hiding the drugs and money in Nick’s bedroom, Allison and Patty try to expose Nick as the neighborhood drug dealer. Sam departs from Jenn and admits he wants to start dating Allison. Moving further with Sam, according to Allison, would be “giving up.”
After being questioned by Detective Tammy, Allison tricks Patty into looking through Tammy’s notepad; as a result, Patty feels terrible, and the two women argue. While in the kitchen, Neil overhears the dispute and discovers Allison’s intentions to murder Kevin. When Allison attempts to take Neil’s phone, he chokes her and threatens to contact Kevin. Patty shows up out of nowhere and slams a bottle at Neil’s head. Both women watch as Neil bleeds out on the ground as the first season comes to a close.
So, the upcoming season is also expected to pick up any potential subplots and loopholes to reach a satisfactory conclusion to the series. Moreover, it is reported that the center of the show’s second and last season will now be Allison and Patty’s frantic attempts to deal with Neil, which will encourage Allison to look for an alternative to being a housewife.
Kevin Can F**K Himself Season 2 Cast and Crew
The first season’s original cast is anticipated to return and carry the storyline into the next season. In addition, the network had not released any new casting announcements as of July 20, 2022. Therefore, the list of the series’ prominent characters with their respective descriptions is as follows:
Annie Murphy as Allison Devine-McRoberts: A woman seeking to take the lead in her own life.
Mary Hollis Inboden as Patricia “Patty” Deirdre O’Connor: the McRoberts’ neighbor who works at a beauty parlor.
Eric Petersen as Kevin McRoberts: Allison’s obnoxious, rude, and ignorant husband—modeled on the loutish husbands in sitcoms such as The King of Queens, The Honeymooners, and, most pointedly, Kevin Can Wait, the CBS sitcom starring Kevin James. He is completely oblivious to Allison’s life and activities when she is away from him.
Alex Bonifer as Neil O’Connor: Kevin’s friend and Patty’s brother who often gets involved in his schemes. Neil is extremely dimwitted and, like Kevin, is completely oblivious to Patty’s life away from him.
Brian Howe as Peter “Pete” McRoberts: Kevin’s father. He predominantly makes caustic comments on the goings on in the “sitcom” portions of the show.
Raymond Lee as Samuel “Sam” Park: Allison’s old friend from high school who now owns a diner and is married; he and Allison still have feelings for each other.
Kevin Can F**K Himself is created, and executive produced by Valerie Armstrong (Lodge 49, SEAL Team), and Rashida Jones and Will McCormack executive produce through Le Train Train (Claws, A to Z). Craig DiGregorio (Shrill) is the showrunner and executive producer. Sean Clements and Colin Walsh also serve as executive producers.
We urge viewers to have some patience because it usually takes some time for new cast announcements to surface. The network will let fans know in advance if any new characters are being introduced in the upcoming season. Fans should, therefore, attentively follow any such developments on social media in the coming weeks.
