You asked, and we’re here to deliver: Irresponsable is back with season 2. Julien is something of a Peter Pan: at 31, he was without a job, money, or a home. After moving back in with his mom in season 1, he found out he had a fifteen year old son by his teenage sweetheart. In season 2, he’s adapting to fatherhood and working as a hall monitor at his son’s school, when a surprise announcement from his mother rocks his precariously won stability.
