HBO’s ‘Betty’ returns to skate another day this June for season two
Based on creator Crystal Moselle’s 2018 Sundance hit Skate Kitchen, Betty will return to HBO for a second season Friday, June 11 (11:00-11:30 p.m. ET/PT). The series follows five young women on journeys of self-discovery against the backdrop of New York City’s male-dominated skateboarding scene. The six-episode season will air on HBO and be available to stream on HBO Max.
