For anyone who didn’t tune into the bingeable series for its first chapter, Starstruck follows millennial East Londoner Jessie who is juggling two dead-end jobs when she becomes romantically entwined with Tom, a famous film star. After repeatedly going their separate ways, Jessie and Tom concluded Season 1 after coming to the realization that they can’t stay away from one another.
So, what does this mean? According to the photo shared by Matafeo, it means domestic bliss as the pair brush their teeth together. Viewers will follow along as they navigate their relationship and Jessie must deal with the ramifications of her grand gesture to follow Tom.
As previously announced, Minnie Driver is set to return as Tom’s agent Cath, meanwhile, Season 2 welcomes new cast member Russell Tovey whose role has yet to be revealed. The Avalon Production airs on BBC Three in the U.K. and is an HBO Max Original series stateside.
