One would think as a middle-aged father of two, returning to the dating scene might be a bit of a ball game – but not for our protagonist of the CBS sitcom, 'The Unicorn'. Now stepping into the Season 2 territory, Wade returns to test the waters of dating once again to newer explorations, revelations and surprises. Wondering what's in store for his future as far as romance is concerned? Here's all you need to know about Season 2 of 'The Unicorn'.

Release date

After Season 1 premiered to critical acclaim on September 26, 2019, Season 2 comes shortly over a year later right at the onset of the fall season, as most TV shows resume from their Covid-19 break. 'The Unicorn' Season 2 will premiere this Thursday, November 12, at 9:30 PM only on CBS. 


The premise for the first episode of 'The Unicorn' detailed a story quite unexplored: "The friends of a widower encourage him to start dating again. Between juggling the responsibility of raising two daughters and trying to move on, he becomes the most sought-after single man in town." Wade here is of course the father returning to the thin ice of dating, and finding himself reasonably surprised when he becomes quite the catch for his devoted widower and father of two label. Things seem to be starting to get tricky for Wade in Season 2 as he first finds himself obsessing over a woman he goes on one date with, and in a later episode also confronted by the compromises and personal lines he might have to breach to pursue another woman he meets. Some things clearly never change!
