About Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce
Girlfriends' Guide To Divorce follows self-help writer Abby McCarthy (Lisa Edelstein) as she navigates being single once again in her 40s. In Season 2, as a new chapter in Abby's professional life seems promising, her personal life remains chaotic and all-consuming as her adventures in dating become even more unpredictable. When she becomes "the face of divorce" for chic lifestyle website SheShe, Abby is once again forced to live a lie hiding her complicated relationship with estranged husband Jake (Paul Adelstein). But as Abby finds success preaching the pros of divorce to her readers and portraying a fabulous single life on social media, she is torn over whether her marriage is worth saving or if she should chart her own course. Throughout Abby's ups and downs, the one constant in life remains her incredible girlfriends. While Delia (Necar Zadegan) grapples with following the rigid traditions of getting married, Phoebe (Beau Garrett) tries to leave her demons in the past as she looks to find her true self, and Jo (Alanna Ubach) deals with her ex-husband and new wife encroaching on her new LA life.

Barry Bostwick and Lesley Ann Warren also guest star as Abby's parents George and Dina.
