Apple TV+ Gets More Trying

In the eight-episode second season of Trying, Nikki (BAFTA nominee Esther Smith) and Jason (SAG nominee Rafe Spall) are continuing to navigate the adoption process. Having been approved by the adoption panel they now find that matching with a child is not as straightforward as they had hoped. It seems like children are being snapped up by other couples while somehow they’re being left behind. Helped by their eccentric social worker Penny (Imelda Staunton)they are determined to do everything they can. When Nikki meets a little girl called Princess at an adoption event she knows instantly that this is the child for them. But there are obstacles to Nikki’s plan that may prove insurmountable.

Returning cast also include Ophelia Lovibond, Oliver Chris, Sian Brooke, Darren Boyd and Robyn Cara. Trying is created, written and executive produced by Andy Wolton, directed and executive produced by Jim O’Hanlon (Catastrophe), produced by Sam Pinnell, (Motherland, Derry Girls), co-produced by Tim Mannion and executive produced by Josh Cole.
