(with notes from the press kit)
After the events of season one, Sabi is ready to make stronger choices for themself, knowing their boundaries, and having developed the self-worth to “take up space”. Now, in Sort Of season two, Sabi will face new challenges in their work life, love life, and family life. With the return of Sabi’s father to Canada, Bessy in recovery in rehab, and workplace uncertainty, life is everything but simple and Sabi will question if they will ever have uncomplicated, normal love.
Season two is the season of love. Friend love, family love, loving your work, love of place, and romantic love. The season explores the nature of all Sabi’s relationships, as well as those of the rest of the ensemble, with a particular focus on unconventionality — not only in queer and gender queer relationships, but in those of Sabi’s cis fams, shedding light on the fact that every way we are connected to one another is atypical. There is no such thing as “normal” love.
