How to watch Kevin Can F**K Himself Season 2: Stream AMC’s hit comedy-drama in the UK, US and elsewhere

A mordant and innovative look at the reality behind being a ‘sitcom wife,’ Kevin Can F**K Himself returns for its second season

With an eye-catching title like Kevin Can F**k Himself, any prospective viewer would be hoping for a show that operates a little outside the box. Following the struggling and unhappily married Allison McRoberts, this show does just that, employing sitcom stages, canned laughter, and more traditional, dramatic filming modes to contrast between Allison’s unhappy role as wife to her obnoxious and unambitious husband Kevin, and her darkly funny downward spiral as she attempts to find a way out of her constrictive, small-town homelife.

If you are hoping to catch the second and final season of Kevin Can F**k Himself, there are a number of ways to do so, depending on where you’re located. US TV viewers looking to watch the season live can do so from 22 August at 9pm ET on AMC, with the eight episode season airing weekly thereafter, finishing on 10 October. If streaming is more your speed, you can watch each episode a week early provided you’re subscribed to AMC+, with the second season also likely to appear on Prime Video US a few weeks after its initial airing, similarly to the first season.

There are currently no confirmed dates for the show’s UK streaming availability. However, you can catch up on the first season on Prime Video UK, and we currently know of no reason why season 2 won’t eventually make its way onto Amazon’s streaming service like the first season did.

What is Kevin Can F**K Himself about?

If you’ve ever seen The King of Queens, The Honeymooners, The Simpsons, or countless other similar shows, you’ll be familiar with the archetypal ‘bad sitcom husband.’ Boorish, impulsive and thoughtless, the childish antics of the sitcom husband are usually overseen by his eye-rolling-yet-endlessly-patient, loyal, beautiful and attentive wife. No matter how much she has to put up with, the sitcom wife is always forgiving, flippantly funny and there to bail her husband out of each new mess or failed scheme he has worked himself into. Until now.

Kevin Can F**K Himself star’s Schitt’s Creek’s Annie Murphy as Allison, a woman looking to become the main character of her own life. The only thing standing in her way? Her rude, loudmouth husband Kevin. While Kevin is onscreen the show takes the form of a brightly lit, multi-camera, sitcom shot on a soundstage. Kevin’s antics prompt canned laughter and are cheered on at every turn by a supporting cast of friends and family. However, once Kevin is offscreen, the show switches to Allison’s perspective, which is more darkly lit and shot with a single-camera in prestige drama style, reflecting her inner turmoil and upset with how her husband treats her and how her life has turned out. Allison’s story in the first season takes her down a grimly hilarious path involving drugs, guns and violence, as she seeks to gain control of her story and push Kevin offscreen once and for all.

How to watch Kevin Can F**K Himself anywhere in the world: Sign up to a VPN service

A Virtual Private Network, or VPN, is the best tool for anyone looking to stream geo-blocked content. Should you find yourself outside the UK or US – for a holiday, business trip, or what have you – and wanting to access services like AMC+, Prime Video US or Prime Video UK, a VPN is just the ticket.

If you’ve never heard the term VPN before, you’ll find an in-depth guide in our full VPN explainer. However, If you’re happy with a whistlestop explanation: A VPN is a service which allows you to anonymously browse the web without anyone – the government, your ISP, or malintented entities such as hackers and scammers – tracking or logging your activity. A VPN achieves this via encryption and by rerouting your traffic through multiple servers in various locations across the world. This rerouting, or ‘location spoofing.’ is what allows you to access location-restricted content. With a VPN, for example, you can connect to a US-based server, and with the appearance of browsing within the US, access the full content libraries of sites like HBO Max, Hulu, Netflix US, Prime Video US and more.

A quick Google will introduce you to more VPNs than you can shake a stick at, though not all of them are likely to be speedy, reliable or safe. To simplify things for you, our resident VPN experts have combed through just about every service out there and handpicked what they found to be the best two services available.
