Beginning on June 2, the entirety of With Love season 2 will be available to stream on Prime Video. The series jumps around in time and focuses on several different couples during major holidays and life events. Among the strongest pairing is Sol and Mike, who meet while working together at the hospital. The two expressed a romantic interest in each other in the pilot episode, and their flirtation has evolved into a long-term relationship. The season 1 finale left much up in the air, but teased the possibility of an engagement for someone in the Diaz family.


Isis King plays the role of Sol Perez and has worked on projects such as Good Trouble, Equal, and The Bold and the Beautiful. Meanwhile, Todd Grinnell plays Dr. Miles Murphy and is most well-known for his starring role as Schneider in One Day at a Time. Emeraude Toubia, Rome Flynn, Desmond Chiam, Mark Indelicato, Vincent Rodriguez III, Constance Marie, and Benito Martinez complete the show’s ensemble cast.

Isis King and Todd Grinnell chat exclusively with Screen Rant about working together to fill in the gaps between time jumps and the family dynamic between Sol, Miles, and Charlie in With Love season 2.

Isis King & Todd Grinnell Talk With Love Season 2

With Love Season 2 Still 2

Screen Rant: The show has a lot of time jumps in season 1, so is that something that will continue?

Isis King: Yeah. While season 1 was based on holidays—and season 2 does have some holidays—it’s more like big life moments that you’ll see. If you watch the end of season 1, you know that something’s going to happen around a wedding ring. So in season 2, you’re going to see some really big moments that show the family all doing different things.

As actors, how does that affect the way that you play the relationship between Sol and Miles? Do you discuss what may have happened during these gaps of time?

Isis King: In season 1, in one episode we kiss, and then the next episode is a few months later, and we’re in a relationship. So I think season 1 got us used to it, and allowed us to think, “Okay, it’s been six months. Where are they now?” And we kind of have had those moments where we’re like, “They’re really in love now, so let’s play it as so.” I love that Gloria always allowed us the freedom to figure it out as well. It was really fun to kind of collab in that way.

Todd Grinnell: It’s almost like a puzzle. Because if you skip months ahead in a script, you read the script, and then you have to go back and say, “Okay, well, we’re here now,” and the writing is so brilliant that we’re already in great spots. You pick up, and it’s very easy to play. But at the same time, you kind of have to go back and go, “Well, we kissed in that episode, and now we’re in bed,” and so you have to imagine all the other things that happened in life in those months that have passed, and it’s kind of fun to fill in those blanks.

Todd, I love how great of a father your character is to Charlie and how attached Charlie has become to Sol as well. What do fans have to look forward to in regard to that family dynamic?

Todd Grinnell: Yes, you’re going to see Charlie come back. You’re also going to see Charlie’s mom. They’re played by Busy Philipps, which was so fun, and that leads to a whole other story. It’s really fun.

Isis King: It was a really fun episode and Busy was a hoot to work with. She kept making me break, and it was just a fun time for sure.

Sol didn’t get to have too many scenes with Lily and Jorge outside the family events. Will we be seeing more of that trio in season 2?

Isis King: I feel like you’re going to see more, especially with Sol and Jorge. In season 1 we mentioned how usually the queer cousins have a connection, or the queer family members in real life—that’s how it is in my family. So you’re definitely going to see them have moments. I’m especially looking forward to Sol and Jorge having a really warm moment in one of the episodes that’s just so sweet.

What else can you tease about the season? Is there a certain episode you’re excited for fans to see?

Todd Grinnell: Oh, man. I’m excited for everybody to see every episode. There’s so much in this season. This relationship between Miles and Sol gets even more real and relatable, and I think Miles learns a lot. Miles and Sol had their ups and downs, and we come back together, and it’s even stronger. I think it’s going to be really inspiring and fun for people to watch. It’s hilarious and sexy and heartwarming.

Isis King: Team Smiles is coming back strong like Todd said. There are going to be a lot of ups and downs. We have a lot more conflict here that naturally happens in relationships as you continue to open up new doors and have other situations happen. You kind of just figure it out as you go, and I feel like with Sol and Miles, you see a lot more of that. A lot more sweet moments, but those real moments when we have to be like, “You can’t do that,” or “You can’t say that.” [There are] some fun moments. We’re so relaxed in real life, so it was really fun to kind of yell at Todd.
