Heads up to all Love Life fans! More episodes are coming on the way. Following the release of episodes 4 to 6, the show will be dropping more than just episode 7.
Love Life is HBO Max’s new rom-com starring Pitch Perfect star Anna Kendrick. Tucked under the coming-of-age genre, the series is an anthology that follows the life of Kendrick’s character Darby Carter for the first season.
She’s a New Yorker lady in her twenties who is just trying to make sense of her career and dating life. And after going through a series of dead-end relationships, Darby struggles to love herself.
As an anthology series, the second season is expected to have another protagonist. But the story of Kendrick’s Darby will not end until the 10th episode. So far, the brand new streaming platform has already released six episodes.
Episodes 4 to 6 were dropped Thursday, June 4. So now fans are just waiting for the rest of the episodes.
When is episode 7 coming?
According to the official Twitter account of HBO Max, they have changed their plans in terms of the release schedule.
