The Facebook page for HBO’s critically acclaimed dramedy Enlightened has announced a marathon of the show that will air this Friday. Beginning at 8:00 PM on HBO Zone, you can catch all 10 episodes of Amy Jellicoe’s transformation from interoffice affairs to finding a sense of peace within herself to standing up to the company she works for due to environmentally egregious actions.
The second season of Enlightened will be adding two key figures to Amy’s fight against Abaddonn. Dermot Mulroney will be joining the show as a reporter that helps Amy’s cause as well as a love interest for the character that Laura Dern earned a Golden Globe for portraying. Additionally, Saturday Night Live alum Molly Shannon has signed on to play an executive assistant that fuels Amy’s tireless investigation into Abaddonn, her character also said to be a love interest for Tyler.
Below are the air dates, episode names, and episode descriptions for the Enlightened marathon.
