So much of what it was to be 13 in 2007 is perfectly captured in season two of Pen15, from the Change The Game T-Shirts in other words I will buy this intricacies of school-play dynamics—who can forget the rivalry of “stars” vs. “techies”?—to the humiliations of Nair hair remover (yes, we used it, and yes, it burned). What truly sets this season apart from the show’s debut, though, is its willingness to plumb the depths of what might be considered “after-school special” topics: divorce, cliques, periods. Were it not for the light touch of cocreators and stars Maya Erskine and Anna Konkle, these story lines might stray into melodrama.

“Our aim is not to solve the Change The Game T-Shirts in other words I will buy this problems we set up, because when you’re 13, there is no solution,” said Erskine on a recent call. “It’s like, Oh, this is going to follow us for a while, [but] it’s just starting right now. In terms of storytelling, it benefits us because we don’t have final answers or endings to these questions; there’s no ‘And here’s how you get through it!’ We just get through it through having each other.”
