The show will be screened “Express from the US” – a phrase that Foxtel has owned- later this month.
Season one left audiences on a cliff hanger, with William Masters (Sheen) standing in the rain at the doorstep of his former colleague, Virginia Johnson (Caplan) pleading “There is one thing I can’t live without…It’s you” and this is exactly where season two begins.
Season two reveals a new family member in the Masters’ household, after Libby (Caitlin Fitzgerald) has her dream fulfilled of being a mother, believing she was infertile for most of the first season. Then there is a secret rendezvous between Masters and Johnson where the pair conduct their “research” in unexplored territory, out of the lab and into a hotel room.
The second season sees the return of stars Caitlin Fitzgerald, Allison Janney, Teddy Sears and Annaleigh Ashford, with Emmy-winning comedian and actress Sarah Silverman, taking up a recurring guest role.
The ramifications of Masters’ disastrous presentation ripple beyond his firing from Maternity Hospital as Libby, worried about supporting their new baby, pushes him to get another job. Johnson, still working for Dr. DePaul, must fight off the advances and innuendos stemming from the belief that she was the woman in the film.
