“After facing her demons — her mom, her boss and, of course, her troll — Annie starts the season feeling pretty good with boyfriend Ryan by her side. That is, until she realizes that hastily quitting her job and jumping into a relationship with someone who is, well, a little less career-focused may not have been the best idea,” the Season 2 synopsis states. “But Annie isn’t the only one on a path to self-discovery… she’ll be joined by both Fran and her mother, who are also figuring out what they really want out of life. And while it’s not easy to get what she always imagined she’d want, Annie is no longer the doormat she once was — and she’s just getting started.”
