Divorce seemed to be off the table for Abby (Lisa Edelstein) and Jake (Paul Adelstein) in the season one finale of Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce. But what kind of series would that be?
The Bravo dramedy is back in metro Vancouver next month to shoot a second season of thirteen episodes this summer. From showrunner Marti Noxon and based on books by Vicki Iovine, Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce is a contemporary and fun take on a woman tackling life after divorce with the help of her girlfriends. Best-selling self-help author Abby navigates her new life in Los Angeles as a single Mom in her early forties as her husband Paul hooks up with CW actress Becca. Not surprisingly, Abby finds advice from her single friends, divorced former model Phoebe (Beau Garrett), lawyer Delia (Necar Zadegan) and newly separated Jo (Alanna Ubach) more relevant than her married ones and that leads to some big changes — like hooking up with her own younger man Will (Warren Christie). In the season one finale, Abby had choices to make:: a Mexican getaway with Will or a reconciliation with Jake.
She chose Jake but we can see her happy ending will be undone by the unexpected pregnancy of Jake’s CW actress girlfriend Becca.
GG2D’s first season filmed around Vancouver from early June to late October in locations like the Rosewood Georgia Hotel and various night spots like Ginger 62 with Kitsilano playing residential L.A. neighbourhoods and the empty Nokia building in Glenlyon Business Park as the kids’ school.
