Usually, Apple TV + announces the fate of one of its TV series fairly quickly, if not just before it even launches. Little Voice is nevertheless an exception because it took more than a year for the streaming service to formalize the cancellation of the series, which will therefore not see season 2.
During its broadcast between July and August last year, Little Voice was able to build a loyal, but clearly too small, audience, especially when the platform has to compare with its other comedies like Ted Lasso, Mythic Quest, Physical, or even the recent Schmigadoon!
Written by Jessie Nelson, who previously worked with Sara Bareilles on the writing of the Broadway adaptation of Waitress, Little Voice presents itself as a romantic and musical comedy about finding your voice as you step into adulthood.
The story then centers on Bess King (Brittany O’Grady), a talented young singer who struggles to achieve her dream, navigating New York between rejection, love, and family issues. . All of this is done on original music composed by Sara Bareilles.
In the cast of this unique season of Little Voice, we find Brittany O’Grady, Shalini Bathina, Sean Teale, Colton Ryan, Kevin Valdez, Phillip Johnson Richardson, Chuck Cooper, Nadia Mohebban, Sam Lazarus, Mark Blane, Ned Eisenberg, Samrat Chakrabarti, Gopal Divan, Sakina Jaffrey, and Emma Hong.
Let’s finish by pointing out that Brittany O’Grady is currently in the miniseries The White Lotus, while Sara Bareilles is working on Peacock’s musical series, Girls5Eva, which has been renewed for season 2.
