Rise episode 2 preview: What’s next for Josh Radnor series?

Rise episode 2Following tonight’s premiere, do you want to know what’s coming up on Rise episode 2? Let’s start by saying this: This story is going to be where the rubber meets the road for the series.

There are few episodes of almost any show that are more important than the second one, and there are a number of different reasons for that — ones that begin with the simple fact that this is when many viewers actually decide whether or not they want to stick with the program for the long-term. It’s certainly possible that they may opt to watch tonight’s premiere, for example, just because it is airing after This Is Us. Following this, the majority of those people may give it another shot because it’s airing in the old This Is Us timeslot. Beyond this, though, it’s really just going to be a test of whether or not the show’s quality, and performers from Josh Radnor and the rest of the cast, are going to be enough in order to ensure that people keep watching. We do think that there is a lot to like here, including the debate about funding for the arts and the hierarchy that exists within a school.

Below, the Rise episode 2 synopsis gives you a little more of a sense as to what is coming up:

03/20/2018 (09:01PM – 10:00PM) (Tuesday) : Lou (Josh Radnor) is brought down to earth when his production budget is slashed, Coach Strickland (Joe Tippett) vindictively monopolizes Robbie’s (Damon J. Gillespie) time, and he has a conflict with Tracey (Rosie Perez). Lilette (Auli’i Cravalho) finds herself starting to fall for Robbie, while Simon (Ted Sutherland) contends with conflicting feelings about his role in the show. As Michael (Ellie Desautels) finds support within the theater troupe, Gwen (Amy Forsyth) acts out in rehearsals in response to tensions at home.
