Wilfred, the offbeat FX comedy about a guy named Ryan (Elijah Wood) who sees his hottie neighbor's dog as a grown man in a dog suit, returns for its second season on June 28. But thanks to the kind folks at FX, we've got a "special preview episode" to share with you in advance of the upcoming premiere.
If you haven't yet checked in on Wilfred—which is actually an American remake of the Australian series of the same name, starring the same excellent Aussie, Jason Gann, as the titular dog-man—might I suggest that you heed our Great Summer TV Cram advice and get a move on? Season 1 got real dark and mind-bendy in an awesome way toward the end, concluding with one of the best cliffhangers of last summer—you can even see the full Season 1 finale at the bottom of this page. Plus, there are only 13 half-hour episodes to get through. So go fetch the DVDs or something, is what I'm saying.
Anyway, back to that brand-new "special preview episode" I promised you: It's called "Progress," and the official FX synopsis is pretty vague: "Ryan realizes the consequences of not having Wilfred in his life." Let's give it a look, shall we?
Special Preview Episode: "Progress"
Well: Robin Williams is Ryan's shrink? And Ryan lives in a mental health facility now... and
Patrick Warburton Rob Riggle is there too? And Wilfred is in a wheelchair? But wait... Ryan actually just works in the mental health facility? And Wilfred is totally fine? And Ryan's basement is there after all? And everything's mostly as it used to be? Looks like we're in for quite the mind-f*ck of a season... or maybe just another fun one full of Ryan and Wilfred's adventures. Either way, you can count in... as soon as I watch this episode again, because I'm not completely sure I understand what just happened.
P.S. In case you need a refresher on how Season 1 wrapped up, we've also got the full season finale, "Identity," for your viewing enjoyment.
