What happens after a grand romantic gesture? After the big finale, now what? Do you sit in silence like the dentist’s aquarium fish in Finding Nemo once they’ve rolled to oceanic freedom (stay with me) or do you fill that awkwardness with so many activities you’ll never have to talk about what’s next?That’s where things pick up in the second season of Starstruck, the romantic comedy series created by and starring comedian Rose Matafeo that stole our hearts by bringing a new millennial twist to Notting Hill. It was hands down one of the best TV shows of 2021. Co-written by Matafeo, Alice Snedden, and Nic Sampson, and directed by Dead Pixels’ Jamie Jay Johnson, Season 2 has landed on BBC Three in the UK, coming later to HBO Max in the U.S., ABC in Australia, and TVNZ in New Zealand.When we last left Jessie (Matafeo) and Tom (Nikesh Patel), they’d been through the horrendously awkward and wonderful clusterfuck that is falling for someone new — especially complicated when one of you is a famous movie star. With the pair of them sitting at the back of the bus en route to Charing Cross, we had so many questions: Would Jessie leave London to go home to family in New Zealand? Would Tom take the big role and head to Ireland? 

‘Starstruck’ is a sweet, funny rom-com that leans into the mess of something new
