Apple TV+ today announced that the second season of its acclaimed British comedy series "Trying" will debut globally Friday, May 14. The series, which has been renewed for a third season, will premiere new episodes weekly, every Friday, exclusively on Apple TV+.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.

Season two follows Nikki and Jason as they try to get a match with a child having been approved by an adoption panel. The new season will air May 14, with the remaining seven episodes following weekly thereafter. Apple did not provide a timeframe for the release of season three.
