Oughta Get a Nod: Pen15 stars Maya Erskine and Anna Konkle are comedy valedictorians

Hulu’s fantastic sitcom about turn-of-the-century youth went out with a brilliant second season. Don’t overlook this short-lived teen TV wonder for this year's Emmys. I never got around to making my list of the 10 best shows last year. So please pardon this very late praise: Pen15 was 2021's best TV series. Co-creators Maya Erskine and Anna Konkle turned their art project comedy into a masterpiece out of the gate, playing their (fictionalized) teen selves. But the final episodes pushed their characters further than ever. BFFs Maya and Anna both got boyfriends, and the show honored their romantic excitement without blinking from the genuine terrors of awkward-or-worse teen intimacy.

Pen15 Creators Maya Erskine And Anna Konkle Are Leaving The Door Open For More

PEN15: Maya Erskine and Anna Konkle Share Why They’re Ending the Show

School’s out for PEN15. Maya Erskine and Anna Konkle’s critically adored comedy, in which they play 13-year-olds in the year 2000, will end on December 3, the day the second part of season two hits Hulu. The series’ conclusion comes as a surprise, given its nomination for the outstanding-comedy-series Emmy earlier this year.

It was devastating news to fans of the series, which premiered in February 2019, seemingly the latest critically acclaimed series to come to an abrupt conclusion, another singular show gone too soon. But this wasn’t Netflix canceling “GLOW” or Comedy Central axing “Detroiters,” Freeform’s “Everything’s Gonna Be Okay, or even Hulu’s “High Fidelity.” Because the decision to conclude “Pen15” had nothing to do with Hulu and everything to do with the women...
