Plot Synopsis

Based on Crystal Moselle's 2018 feature, SKATE KITCHEN, this half-hour comedy series follows a diverse group of young women navigating their lives through the predominantly male-oriented world of skateboarding, set against the backdrop of New York City. Opinionated and loyal, Janay is strong willed and stubborn in ways that both help and hurt her. Honeybear is a quiet storm. Her flagrant style is a ruse; an armor she wears to hide her emotional struggles. Kirt is a lover (to the ladies), a fighter (to the rest of the world), and a little kid in the body of a woman. She's the funniest person alive, but even if she knew it, she wouldn't care. Meanwhile, Indigo is a street-savvy hustler trapped in the body of a well-to-do art school drop-out. On the edge of the group is Camille, guarded, perceptive, intelligent and awkward. She wants to be down with the dudes in the skate park and has fought hard for the small space she's carved out with them, but she needs to realize that cool points don't actually add up to the sum of anything, especially in the eyes of the other girls. BETTY stars Dede Lovelace, Moonbear, Nina Moran, Ajani Russell, and Rachelle Vinberg all starred in the original film.
The sophomore season of BETTY debuted on Friday, June 11, 2021 at 11pm ET/PT on HBO. In the new season, the girls are stepping firmly into womanhood and tackling all the challenges it brings. As they navigate the pressures of adulthood, their male counterparts start to step up, step in, and become true allies, forming a united front for the greater good. Set in the last chapter of 2020, the season captures the pandemic in New York City, where masks and outside activities are the norm. Season 2 episodes include:
