If you are a sucker for romance, you’ll undoubtedly enjoy what feels like an ending to Alice’s story.
This review of Netflix’s An Astrological Guide for Broken Hearts season 2 does not contain spoilers.
At the end of season 1, we were all wondering if Alice will ever land love after venturing through astrological theory with her close friend. It was a heartbreaking ending, with Davide showing that his past is still present as he kisses an old flame right in front of Alice. Surely, this was the end for Alice and Davide? But the hopeless romantic part of us remained ironically hopeful.
And that’s what season 2 brings — hope. And it did not take a long time for Netflix to bring out the continuation. Though the material is more and less the same, it’s emboldened by Alice continuing to discover her wants and needs in the most comedic and bubbly way possible — the selling point remains the same. There’s still the approach of reveling in star signs in the belief it will mean something. There’s the beauty of the series; there’s a routine belief that a higher power determines fate, and Alice is certainly a character that embraces that.
For six chapters, season 2 teases with the audience the possibility of a happy ending for Alice, and her friends, as they continue to juggle and balance love, life, and relationships. We could argue that the “happy ever ending” concept is growing tired in the modern world of dating, but the sentiment is still appreciated. An Astrological Guide for Broken Hearts always has a short and sweet vibe to it, and that’s enough. Sometimes we only are encouraged by the “what if,” and season 2 certainly enjoys that prospect.
So, it’s pretty much the same again in season 2, but it’s definitely more conclusive, and it serves the audience respectfully with a continuation. If you are a sucker for romance, you’ll undoubtedly enjoy what feels like an ending to Alice’s story.
