Plot Synopsis

THE GUEST BOOK is a half-hour comedy anthology series that emerged from series creator Greg Garcia's habit of writing fictitious stories in the guest books of various rental cabins in an effort to freak out the next renters. Now he is bringing those stories to life in this series. While the house and cast of characters living in this small mountain town remain the same, each 30-minute episode of the first season features a different set of vacationing guests, who each bring their own baggage and special brand of crazy. Season 1 guest stars include Danny Pudi, Jenna Fischer, Tommy Dewey, Lauren Lapkus, Michaela Watkins, Mary Lynn Rajskub, Michael Rapaport, Kate Micucci, Jaime Pressly, Stockard Channing, Andrew J. West, John Ortiz, David Zayas, Shannon Woodward, Margo Martindale and Stephnie Weir. On Thursday, August 3, 2017 from 10-11pm ET/PT, TBS premiered THE GUEST BOOK, showing back-to-back episodes. In "Story One" (10pm), months after having a kid, Tim, a middle-school science teacher, books the cabin to spice up his sex life with his wife Sandy, but when things take an unexpected turn, Tim finds himself way over his head in a criminal conspiracy. Then, in "Story Two" (10:30pm), devout mother Jill is annoyed that her son Ethan has brought his atheist fiancee Lynn to the cabin for a family getaway.

Season 2 of THE GUEST BOOK premiered on Tuesday, October 23, 2018 from 10-11pm ET/PT on TBS. The second season features a new town, new series regulars, and new guest stars. In the small oceanside community of Mabel Beach, vacationers who stay at the Bare Feet Retreat record their confessions, alibis, and farewells in the cottage's guest book. They are hosted by town locals Bodhi, Nikki and Tommy, played by series regulars Jimmy Tatro, Kimiko Glenn, and Dan Beirne. Tommy and Nikki are a couple that manage Emmy Lou's Grill and Bare Feet Retreat. Bodhi is a handyman who often helps out at the grill and vacation home. Carly Jibson and Eddie Steeples also star in Season 2. Jibson returns as Vivian, the scheming bikini bar owner, who accompanies Eddie (played by Steeples) from Mount Trace to the beach in search of a fresh start. The season opens with back-to-back new episodes:

"Finding Reality" (Tuesday, October 23, 2018 @ 10pm): Vivian and Eddie leave Mt. Trace to make a fresh start in a small beachside town, where they meet Nikki and Tommy, the engaged couple running Emmy Lou's Grill and vacation home Barefeet Retreat, and Bodhi, the local handyman. Vivian starts working at Emmy Lou's and Eddie quickly befriends Bodhi. Tara and Derek rent Barefeet Retreat in an attempt to improve their marriage, which has been complicated by Derek's addiction to VR. Guest stars: Joey 'Coco' Diaz, Kether Donohue, and Nat Faxon.

"Under Cover" (Tuesday, October 23, 2018 @ 10:30pm): Rob and Shelley run an operation called Rock Bottom Industries. In exchange for money, they stage situations to make sure people's drug-addicted loved ones hit rock bottom in a safe environment. They rent Barefeet Retreat to lure in their next mark, a woman named Angel who is abusing every substance that can be abused. Meanwhile, Vivian develops a crush on Bodhi and Nikki goes into labor. Guest stars: Martha Plimpton, Sufe Bradshaw, and Will Arnett.
