Yes, the series is based off of creator Tracy McMillan’s real-life relationship with her formerly incarcerated father. Although, it’s not the first time she’s told the story in the media. Tracy originally penned a piece for HuffPost in 2010, which you can read here.

As for a possible second season, there’s no word on whether or not the series has been renewed by Hulu. The 8-episode first season has received glowing praise and rave reviews by fans and critics alike, so things seem favorable. But, you never know what will happen in the world of television, especially with streaming services nowadays.
