Childless & Childfree Characters We Can't Wait to See Again

January 18, 2018

Toward the end of every January, I find myself in a familiar space, tingling anxiously for February's ratings sweeps to shake up my TV screens with stories that transport me far from home. For childless and childfree characters living in that universe, my New Year wish, as in every New Year, is that we be entrusted to hear their NotMom backstory, because whatever it is, it informs who they are when we meet them.Here's four of my favorites.


Grace and Frankie (Netflix):Last season, Grace's daughter Brianna (played by June Diane Raphael) has always been happy with her life as a high performance professional, childfree by choice and single. After a breakup, she is questioning her choices. Here's hoping she evolves without caving in. (*See Bernadette, Big Bang Theory)  


Meanwhile, Brianna's sister Mallory (played by Brooklyn Decker). is increasingly unhappy with her life as a mother of four with an unengaged husband.
