'9 Months With Courteney Cox' Season 2: Release date, plot, cast, trailer and everything you need to know about the pregnancy docuseries
‘9 Months With Courteney Cox’ brings a cross-section of Americans to the spotlight as they self-document their diverse experiences of pregnancy
Featuring 'Friends' actor Courteney Cox as the host, '9 Months With Courteney Cox' debuted on Facebook Watch in late January with a 20-episode first season. The show brings a cross-section of Americans to the spotlight as they self-document their diverse experiences of pregnancy.
Season 2 will follow 10 families as they share their intimate, unfiltered journeys with the world, battling infertility, life-threatening illnesses, and disabilities. The series also has a dedicated Facebook group where members are encouraged to post stories about their own pregnancies, inspire each other and give advice to new parents and expecting families.
Talking about the show, Cox told Entertainment Tonight, "It's a story about 10 different couples that are taking us through the journey of their pregnancy. And you deal with everything from cancer to alcoholism, whether you can keep the baby, whether you should keep the baby, whether you wanted to get pregnant. It's really what's happening. And yes, I cry a lot."
The actress, who gave birth at 40, dealt with numerous failed in-vitro fertilization procedures before finally getting the results. Reportedly, she also battled postpartum depression for six months after her daughter Coco's birth.
The docuseries will premiere on Facebook Watch on Mother’s Day, May 10, at 6 pm PT/9 pm ET.
Focussing on pregnancy stories of families across America that often go untold, Season 2's stories are diverse and complex. Here are some of the stories that will be featured.
Charisse's struggles with her pregnancy as she battles her lifelong problems with balance and motor functions as a result of her cerebral palsy and ataxia. Merrill's journey as a surrogate for her best friend, Alexa who has an inoperable brain tumor and a husband deployed in Germany for the US Army; the picture-perfect LDS couple, Kateka and Stu, will tell viewers about their attempts to get pregnant for 11 years without success, due to multiple complications. Caylea, born with achondroplasia (dwarfism), will share her worries about the 50/50 chance of her baby being born with dwarfism too.
There will be cheerful stories too like that of Tiesha and Dienesha, 28-year-old twin sisters living together, who are both pregnant with boys with the same due date.
Courteney Cox is the host of the show. The actress, who is popular for her role as Monica in 'Friends', has also starred in several movies such as the 'Scream' series, 'Ace Ventura: Pet Detective with Jim Carrey' (1994), 'The Runner' (1999), '3000 Miles to Graceland' (2001), 'The Shrink Is In' (2001) and 'The Longest Yard' (2005).
Executive produced and introduced by Courteney Cox, the actor herself shares her own struggles with pregnancy on the show. The show is a co-production of Ample Entertainment and Cox's own Hopper Productions.
The trailer starts with Courteney Cox introducing Season 2 of the Facebook Watch original series. "Infertility, illness, disability... the stakes couldn't be higher." Her voiceover continues over brief clips of the couples who will be featured this season, saying, "something compels them forward. A life. If they can summon the courage to carry on the reward is a gift of a lifetime".
