Among the returns that will be the first to be offered by the Radio-Canada platform this fall, this is the one we are most looking forward to. Last fall, we devoured this gleefully transgressive comedy written by Marie-Andrée Labbé (Too) in which Magalie Lépine-Blondeau plays Sarah, a sexologist nurse who cares for patients facing all kinds of problems. Directed by Patrice Ouimet, the second season promises to be just as entertaining. We’re particularly eager to find the skewer of colorful supporting characters, including Dominique, the unfiltered boss camped out by Isabelle Vincent. We’re also curious to see how the author pulled off Anne Casabonne, now a budding politician.
