The season two premiere of the Apple TV+ series 'Trying' has been delayed by a week.

When Apple originally announced season two of the series, it said that it would premiere globally on May 14.

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+.

It's unclear when or why the premiere date was changed, but the company announced today on Twitter that the second season will now debut on Apple TV+ on May 21.

Season two of 'Trying' will once again follow Nikki and Jason as they try to navigate the adoption process.

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 of 'Trying' will premiere on Apple TV+ on May 21. The streaming service is best experienced on an Apple TV, so check out our list of the Best Apple TV in 2021 to see which one is best for you.
