Can’t Cope Won’t Cope Series 2 (2018)

Can’t Cope Won’t Cope Series 2 sees Aisling (Seána Kerslake) and Danielle (Nika McGuigan) struggling with the new normality of being apart.


We meet Aisling after she’s had her soul sucked out of her by small town Mallow for an entire summer. She has a job in a local financial establishment, but in typical Aisling style she throws in the towel at the first signs of trouble.

Meanwhile in Vancouver, Danielle is struggling despite having her wish for more art and less Aisling come true. There is no-one at her side to roll her eyes at when the super politically correct art school culture in Vancouver starts grating on her.

Series 2 gives Aisling and Danielle the chance to make all the right choices… but where’s the fun in that?
