Girls5eva Announces New List Of Guest Stars For Season 2

Peacock’s Emmy-nominated and critically acclaimed comedy series GIRLS5EVA, from Emmy Award-winning screenwriter, showrunner and producer Meredith Scardino and Universal Television, has announced an “un4gettable” slate of guest stars for their upcoming season. Following the exploits of a one-hit-wonder girl group from the 90’s trying to make it big again, the Tina Fey-produced series stars Broadway staples Sara Bareilles and Renée Elise Goldsberry alongside SNL Vet Paula Pell and Cougar Town actress Busy Philipps as the titular group.

“Season 2 of ‘Girls5eva’ answers the simple question: What would happen if ‘Girls5eva’ was renewed for a second season?” series showrunner Meredith Scardino said at a SXSW panel. “We are so excited to share the next chapter in Dawn, Wickie, Gloria, and Summer’s journey as they enter ‘Album Mode’ and embark on making their first studio album on their own terms.” Scardino is also an EP on the show alongside Fey (Little Stranger Inc.), Robert Carlock (Bevel Gears), Jeff Richmond, David Miner (3 Arts Entertainment), and Eric Gurian (Little Stranger).
