Seeso Plants More ‘Flowers’

Flowers will bloom again. The dark comedy series has been renewed for a second season by subscription service Seeso and its British producer Channel 4.

The show is about the eccentric Flowers family, which, per Wikipedia, consists of: a depressed children’s author; his music teacher wife; their 25-year-old twin children – an inventor son and a lesbian musician; his senile mother; and his gay Japanese illustrator.

Seeso released the first six half-hours of Flowers in May. It said the next six episodes will be filmed in 2017, but did not specify when the shows will be available to viewers. Here’s the trailer for season one:

Seeso, NBCUniversal’s all-comedy streaming service, is available for $3.99 monthly. Other upcoming programming includes the “12-Week Stand-Up Streaming Fest,” consisting of 21 stand-up specials to premiere from October 20 through January 5, most of them on Thursdays. The content includes Janeane Garofalo’s If I May (October 27), Mo Mandel’s Negative Reinforcement (November 3) and Laurie Kilmartin’s 45 Jokes About My Dead Dad (December 29).

In addition to original programming, Seeso features classic shows (e.g., Monty Python’s Flying Circus, The Kids in the Hall, 30 Rock, Parks and Recreation, Saved by the Bell, The Office, Fawlty Towers) and day-after availability of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Late Night with Seth Myers and Saturday Night Live.

 You can find Seeso at www.seeso.com, on smartphone apps, and via Chromecast, Roku, Xbox, Amazon Fire TV, Amazon Fire Stick and Amazon Instant Video.
