What if you had the key that could unlock the chains, the magic key that could free us all—would you use it?" asks Amy Jellicoe (Laura Dern), the heroine of HBO’s great comedy Enlightened , which returns for its second season this week. Amy thinks she has such a key—a password to access e-mails of the executives at her L.A.-area cosmetics company, Abaddonn, who she suspects are lying greed-balls who pollute the environment, sell unsafe products, and plot to replace their workforce with "one fat guy in an office somewhere." And she’s right. Too bad this righteous messenger is so easy to shoot. Amy is a former sales executive who last season took a leave for reckless behavior, rehabbed at a holistic treatment facility, and rejoined the company as a wage slave in Abaddonn’s experimental Cogentiva division, ground zero of the worker-replacement scheme. She’s a paranoid, manipulative flirt, a lazy flake whose workload is carried by her nebbishy co-worker Tyler (series co-creator Mike White), and a drama queen who acts as if other people are supporting players in the Julia Roberts movie of her life. "This is fate, serious fate, like sword-in-the-rock fate," Amy tells her mother, played by Dern’s real-life mom, Diane Ladd. "Maybe I am chosen for something, you know?"

HBO has announced the premiere dates for the second seasons of comedies Girls and Enlightened. Beginning on January 13th at 9:00, the 10-episode sophomore run of critical darling Girls will commence, while the Mike White comedy Enlightened will return from a year-long hiatus at 9:30. Both will be airing in a different timeslot than they did during their previous seasons, as Girls premiered this spring at 10:00 with Veep and Enlightened was paired with Bored to Death during HBO's brief foray into Monday night programming. In addition, the two will have the rare task of airing on a night without a drama, as the sudden cancellation of Luck left HBO without an hour-long ready to air come January. Last January, the network debuted the horse racing drama from David Milch at 9:00 and doubled up episodes of Chris Lilley's Angry Boys at 10:00 and 10:30, respectively.

"Let’s win one for the little guys!" an impassioned Amy Jellicoe (Laura Dern) says to her co-worker Tyler (Mike White) in the season two teaser for HBO’s Enlightened . His response? "I’ve got to go to the bathroom." By now Amy is used to her enthusiasm being met with reserve, or worse, hostility. Don’t expect that to dissuade her from continuing down the path of enlightenment though. Season two will see her continuing her crusade against her company’s environmental transgressions. At one point in the trailer she even proclaims, "There is a mutiny brewing." In addition to Tyler, Amy will have additional help in furthering her cause form guest stars Dermot Mulroney and Molly Shannon. Watch the trailer below to see them in action!
