The level of high-quality queer TV content just keeps rising, and yet another must-see series to add to your list, HBO Max’s “Sort Of,” just got the green light for a second season. The Canadian project came out of the gate in 2021 to praise across the board, landing on year-end best-of lists from “The Hollywood Reporter,” “The Globe and Mail” and “Vanity Fair.”
It’s the story of a young gender nonconforming Millennial named Sabi, played by series co-creator Bilal Baig, who works at a queer bar, tends to a group of queer friends, and navigates life as the youngest child of a large Pakistani family. Alongside co-creator Fab Filippo (“Save Me”), Baig has given queer audiences hungry for representation a funny, wise show about the nature of identity and the trouble with clinging to labels. Now go catch up while we wait for that next batch of episodes to drop.
