If you didn’t catch the first season of Netflix’s award-winning dramedy Derek, you should check it out before the new season premieres on May 30th. Here is a brief synopsis of the show and a sneak peek at the second season:
Derek Noakes (Gervais) is a tender, innocent man whose love for his job at a retirement home shines through. Derek care deeply for the home’s residents, because they are kind and funny and tell him stories of what life used to be like. Working alongside Derek is Dougie (Karl Pilkington), his landlord who is one of life’s unlucky individuals; Kev (David Earl), a lovable train wreck; and Hannah (Kerry Godliman), a care worker in the home and Derek’s best friend. She is smart, witty and hard-working, but unlucky in love, and, like Derek, always puts other people first. In the second season, Derek’s kindness has truly extended to those around him as he forges new friendships. The retirement home’s residents and employees have built a familial community and Derek’s positive outlook and good natured spirit allows them to persevere through the difficult times that they sometimes face.
Derek premieres on May 30th at 12:01 am on Netflix.
