During an interview with Deadline earlier this month, Kendrick spoke of the possibility of a third season of Love Life on HBO Max.

"We really have no idea," she admitted. "It’s funny because we’ve written ourselves into a corner where if there’s ever more interactions between Darby and Marcus it’ll have to be fully in the future which is always dicey. Frankly, in Love Life season 1, we only went a couple of months into the future and then Covid hit. If we had written a year or more into the future, it wouldn’t have made sense."
