Clark is a middle-aged man who lives in a quiet area of the city with his cats. He has long been in love with an eccentric colleague, Amily, who is famous for her tough temper. One day, in the courtyard of his own house, Clark is struck by lightning, and a week later, a half-drunk Amily, who arrives on a scooter to the office, sees how he glows. And this is just the tip of the iceberg…
“God’s Favorite Idiot ss 2”: release date, announcement
A sequel to the romantic comedy “God’s Favorite Idiot” has not been announced. It is worth noting that the first part of the season 1 received too low ratings, which does not yet give any guarantee that we will see the second one. But there are 8 more episodes ahead of us, which have not even been filmed to the end. Perhaps it is these episodes that will raise the overall rating of the picture and the producers will have a reason to extend the project for the season 2.
The most important thing in Clark’s life were pets. They spent a lot of time in the arms of their beloved owner and were always deliciously fed. The unexpected “rebirth” of Clark for the cats went unnoticed, but he himself understood — the lightning had done something inexplicable to him. The traffic lights began to turn green, favorite music was playing everywhere and this was at the most opportune moment.
Few people knew that Clark secretly sighed for a colleague who was his complete opposite. Amily rode her favorite scooter, adored flashy clothes, bright makeup, alcohol, painkillers and everything that can bring pleasure. One night, she got so drunk that she rode her scooter into the office elevator.
Before the doors opened, she saw a strange sight. Clark was sitting at his workplace, but his body glowed so brightly that the woman fainted, falling from the transport. Surprised by her late arrival, Clark did not think about the reason why she fainted. It is understandable — he was more concerned about the state of Amily, he liked so much. The next day, when all the colleagues gathered in the office, Amily decided to tell them about the nightly incident.
Knowing Amily’s craving for alcohol, with which she washed down an incredible amount of painkillers, colleagues decided not to take her stories about the “glow” seriously. Just on this day, Clark decided to try his luck and ask Amily out on a date at a restaurant. She agrees, trying to bring him to the truth. Recalling a happy moment in his life, Clark glows again, and the people at the restaurant capture it on their phones.
The public immediately begins to terrorize the man about what happened. But now he has such a powerful force as Amily on his side. She is ready to protect her comrade from anyone who wants to harm him. Colleagues join the defense of Clark, because for many years he was a close person to them. How will this story end?..
