Casual trailer: Michaela Watkins tries to act normal in season 2

Posted on

Hulu via YouTube

Valerie (Michaela Watkins), her brother Alex (Tommy Dewey), and Laura (Tara Lynne Barr) spent the first season of Casual making a bit of a mess out of their lives. In the season 2 trailer for the Hulu dark comedy, they’re trying to clean that mess up — keyword: trying.

Alex, for one, has taken up exercise and weirdly colored smoothies. “It’s distracting,” he explains to a confused Valerie. “And distraction is the universal human motivator.” Meanwhile, Valerie’s struggling to make friends, and Laura’s figuring out whether or not to return to high school. Valerie sums up their efforts when she tells Laura, “I want to make a good impression so they think we’re normal.”

Watch the trailer — which also features appearances from Casual newbies Katie Aselton and Vincent Kartheiser — above, and see the season 2 premiere when it debuts June 7 on Hulu.
