The second season of Matt LeBlanc's comedy series, Episodes
, will premiere on Showtime in July, and PEOPLE.com has a first look at the cast.
Picking up four months after the end of Season 1, the season premiere has LeBlanc (playing an exaggerated version of himself) feeling the after-effects of a tryst with his friend's wife. Complicating matters? The three characters are working together to launch their television series, Pucks!
But while tensions may be running high as far as the plot is concerned, the cast members are perfectly chummy off-screen.
LeBlanc in particular has plenty to smile about. The former Friends
star won a best lead actor Golden Globe
for the show back in January.
premieres July 1.
