Storyline

Bridgette Bird is a smart, scrappy, young single mom trying to navigate life in South Boston with an extremely unconventional family. She struggles to make ends meet, which leads her to impulsive and at times immature decisions. Above all, Bridgette wants to make a better life for her son. SMILF takes on motherhood, co-parenting, and female sexuality through a raw and unfiltered lens. Don't miss this semi-autobiographical half-hour comedy from the creative mind of Frankie Shaw, an original and fresh new female voice. Written by AnonymousB

Too little too late- Cancelled
31 March 2019 | by philpipSee all my reviews

I have not seen so much ambiguity with the reviewer ratings like you see here- I guess some enjoyed it while others hated it. I just finished watching season 2 and I liked the development of the actors and felt that SMILF had a solid base, and a direction to move towards, so I went looking to see if there were any teasers for season 3 and BAM- it's gone! The stand out of the show was Rosie O'Donnell. I'm hopeful that she will find (or that someone will write) a dramady around her. She really hit the nail on the head with her character, and I'm sorry to see her and the other characters go.
