EXCLUSIVE: Netflix has ordered an eight-episode second season of Bonding, the short-form dark comedy series from Rightor Doyle (Barry), with Zoe Levin, Brendan Scannell, Micah Stock and Theo Stockman all confirmed to reprise their roles. Production began this week in New York.
Written, directed and executive produced by Doyle, Bonding, whose episodes are 12-18 min in length, is loosely based on his life experiences. It centers on the relationship between former high-school BFFs, Pete (Scannell), a recently out gay man, and Tiff (Levin), a grad student and secretly one of New York City’s top dominatrixes, who reconnect in an unexpected way years later.
