Dollface. But the show’s second season also features a thoughtful queer love story for Shay Mitchell’s Stella, who was conceived of as queer from the start.In season 2, which kicked off last week, fun party girl Stella, who’s grappling with whether or not she wants the career in finance that she seemed destined for, makes her way into a bar run by out actor Lilly Singh’s Liv.

The chemistry between Stella and Liv is immediately palpable, and without the fanfare of a coming-out or big discussions about identity, the women embark on a beautifully normal relationship that’s treated with as much care as the other relationships in the series that also stars Kat Dennings, Brenda Song, and Esther Povitsky.Shay Mitchell and Esther Povitsky “Stella was always a character from when she was conceived even in season one as a queer character,” Dollface creator Jordan Weiss tells The Advocate. “But she just happened to only date a guy in the one episode we had time to even show, you know, there’s only one episode of season 1 you even see her dating someone.”“I was just excited to have more time to dedicate an entire storyline in season 2,” Weiss adds. “She happens to be dating a woman, and I think we approached it with the same attitude that Stella would approach it as a character, which is that she's just a pretty fluid person.”The first season began with Dennings’s Jules at a crossroads when her boyfriend of several years dumps her and she realizes her old friends moved on while she prioritized the man in her life over them.

The fantastical piece of Dollface involves Beth Grant as the “cat lady,” a human-sized cat who drives a bus and doles out advice to Jules.
