Season 2

Raising Hope is the critically acclaimed single-camera comedy from Emmy Award winner Greg Garcia that follows the Chance family as they find themselves raising the newest addition to the household: a baby named Hope (guest stars Baylie and Rylie Cregut).

Hope is the product of Jimmy's (Lucas Neff) one-night stand with a wanted felon, whom his mother, Virginia (Martha Plimpton), helped capture and send to prison.

Virginia and her husband, Burt (Garret Dillahunt), who had Jimmy at the tender age of 15, find themselves back in the baby game - but now with their granddaughter, they have a chance to get it right.

The Chances live with Jimmy's great-grandmother, Maw Maw (Cloris Leachman). Once the rock of the family, she now forces everyone to stay on their toes. In her mind, the house is infested with mongooses, she's cheating on her dead husband and it just might be World War II.

When Jimmy isn't working for Burt's lawn-care service, he moonlights at Howdy's Supermarket for the health insurance benefits and a chance to be close to Sabrina (Shannon Woodward), a sardonic checkout clerk with an annoying boyfriend - all under the watchful eye of his doll-collecting, fight-clubbing boss Barney (Gregg Binkley).

Together with his family, friends, neighbours and coworkers, Jimmy will give Hope the best upbringing he can while facing the toughest job of his life: being a father.

This season on Raising Hope, the Chance family takes a trip to Las Vegas for a wedding; Burt gets kidnapped; Sabrina's secrets will be revealed; and the family worries about Hope's future.

Raising Hope is produced by Amigos de Garcia Productions in association with 20th Century Fox Television. Garcia serves as executive producer on the series.
