Get ready for more “Togetherness” with Jay and Mark Duplass.

HBO has given a second season to the Duplass’ half-hour comedy, which will begin production in Los Angeles this year for a 2016 debut.

The series follows two couples living under one roof on the fringes of Los Angeles. Brett (Mark Duplass) and Michelle (Melanie Lynskey) are struggling to rekindle the spark in their relationship, which has puttered out from the stresses of marriage and children. When Brett’s friend Alex (Steve Zissis) and Michelle’s sister, Tina (Amanda Peet) move in with them, the foursome engage in a tragically comedic struggle to follow their personal dreams, while still remaining good friends, siblings and spouses to each other.

“We began our love affair with HBO in our parents’ living room in 1983, and to have these brilliant creative people put a ring on our fingers with a second season of ‘Togetherness’ is a real-life dream come true,” the Duplass brothers said.

“Togetherness” is written, co-created, directed and executive produced by the Duplass brothers, with Zissis also serving as co-creator as well as consulting producer. Stephanie Langhoff serves as a co-executive producer.

The series premiered Jan. 11.
