Though it went a little under the radar, Easy was one of my favourite Netflix originals last year, an insight into modern life and love in the vein of Master of None and Love but with its own spin.

The fifth episode, 'Art and Life', was by far my favourite, centring on a generational artistic disagreement between Marc Maron's cartoonist and Emily Ratajkowski's selfie artist.

I kind of assumed that the second season of the show would be all new characters, but it looks like Maron's character is coming back: "I just shot another one as that guy," he told me on our podcast this week (listen below).

He also discussed what it's like acting on such an improvisational show.

"The thing about working with Swanberg is you don't know what's going to happen in those scenes coz he really gives you very little, it's barely an outline in terms of what's going to happen in the scene," Maron explained. "So the emotions that happen on the takes - of which you don't do many - are fairly genuine as long as you're present."

Alongside his own show, Maron, Marc has also appeared in HBO's Girls recently, and will soon take a lead role in Netflix women's wrestling series GLOW.

Easy has been back filming in Chicago the past few weeks, a casting call looking for, among others, burlesque dancers.
