The series Chicago Party Aunt, created by Chris Witaske, Katie Rich, and Jon Barinholtz, recaptures the essence of Chicago. The creators of the show have decided to add a second season due to the positive reception of the first season.
The plot centres on Chicago aunt Diane Dunbrowski and her nephew Daniel. Diane is the archetypal aunt from Wrigleyville, Chicago, whose life philosophy is to party as often as possible and never take anything too seriously. We occasionally get a glimpse into her heart, which reveals that despite her careless attitude, she is a good person.
The origin of Chicago Party Aunt is an interesting tale. Chris Witaske had a Twitter account where he posted random tweets posing as an aunt from Chicago. Although the account began as a joke, it quickly gained popularity.
After contacting Chris, producers decided to create a show based on the Twitter account. It premiered on September 17, 2021, with news of a second instalment in production. This week, the second portion of the season will air.
