The Emmy award-winning digital drama series "After Forever," created by Michael Slade and Kevin Spirtas, is back with an amazing second season.
The second season launched on Amazon Prime Video on December 31, and it is comprised of eight compelling episodes. In this season, Brian (Emmy award-winning actor Kevin Spirtas) is dating David (Mike McGowan), who was introduced to him by Jason's parents: Frannie and Carl played by Anita Gillette and Lenny Wolpe respectively. Anita Gillette keeps on delivering dynamic and emotional performances as Jason's mourning mother.
Brian is trying to move on with the help of his family and friends, but he is still wrestling the memory of Jason, who still feels very much a big part of his life and every decision-making process. Emmy-nominated actor Mitchell Anderson reprises his role as Jason and really triumphs in it, while Mike McGowan is a revelation as David.

Kevin Spirtas brings so many deep layers to his complex character, Brian, and the audience can't help but sympathize with him and feel his pain and sorrow. He is raw, dramatic, and convincing. Spirtas' tour de force acting really hits the viewers like a shot in the heart, and he proves that he is a miracle actor.
Veteran actress Mary Beth Peil is sensational as Brian's mother, Helen, and she gives a memorable, sentimental performance. Cady Huffman also does solid work as Lisa keeping the memory of her late friend, Jason, alive through her singing and bittersweet scenes with Brian. Emmy winner Erin Cherry is back as Brenda, who is the voice of reason in Brian's workplace.
At last year's Daytime Emmy Awards, After Forever won five Emmy Awards including the coveted award for "Outstanding Digital Drama Series," and this new year, it looks like it's on its way of earning many more well-deserved Emmy nominations and accolades.
Creators Michael Slade and Kevin Spirtas served as executive producers with Allison Vanore as producer and Tina Cesa Ward as director.
