In season 1, The Best Years introduced foster kid SAMANTHA BEST (Charity Shea) as she jumped into her first year at Charles University, and dealt with all the challenges of finding her feet, making friends, falling in love and breaking up, and discovering a family she never knew she had. Along the way, we met her best friends KATHRYN KLARNER (Jennifer Miller) and NOAH JENSEN (Randal Edwards) and other great characters who rounded out the ensemble and kept Sam afloat through her tumultuous freshman year. The season ended as Sam drove off to LA for her winter break, excited about the prospect of adventure.

Season 2 starts nine months later, as Sam returns to CU after an unexpected detour to South America that ended with a broken heart in Panama. But we see right away that Sam’s experiences have changed her: she’s feistier, wiser, and more than anything determined to have fun. And the tone of Season 2 changes along with her: wilder, sexier and funnier than anything we’ve seen before.

Noah and Kathryn are still there, but they too have changed, and so Sam gets a second chance to do college right as she meets new characters, including DEL HODGES (Michael Xavier), a funny, arrogant rich kid who fancies himself a ladies’ man but has a lot of surprises underneath; ROBYN CRAWFORD (Mishael Morgan), a driven and slightly neurotic pre-med who’s also Noah’s new girlfriend; POPPI BANSAL (Nadiya Chettiar), Sam’s bizarre-but-brilliant RA, and not one but two new love interests for Sam; RICH POWELL (Tommy Lioutas), a charming and funny sustainability major who’s more at ease with saving the planet than committing to Sam, and JAKE LA SERRE (Corey Sevier), a dangerous-sexy bad boy with a wicked sense of humour.

The second season of The Best Years builds on the characters and relationships that Season 1 fans loved, but spins them in a fresh and funny way. With a lighter tone and more emphasis on relationships and the small moments that change our lives, Season 2 looks to be a fresh new face in Canadian television.
