The popular Hulu series Pen15 is ending.

It was just announced that the comedy series, starring Anna Konkle and Maya Erskine as 13-year-old versions of themselves, is ending after the already-filmed season two.

The first part of season two premiered in September 2020 and the second half of the season will start streaming on Friday (December 3).

PEN15's Anna Konkle Welcomes Baby Girl With Alex Anfanger & They're Engaged!

Anna Konkle revealed that she’s welcomed a baby girl with Alex Anfanger.

The PEN15 star shared the big news in a dual feature with co-star Maya Erskine for Vogue.

Anna and Alex named their daughter, who they welcomed earlier this year, Essie Wunderle Anfanger.

“The middle name comes from my dad’s side of the family, in honor of him,” she shared of her daughter’s unique name. “The Wunderles were known to have strong, forward-thinking women. And my great-great-grandfather, also a Wunderle, went from selling sweets from a street cart to having a large factory where candy corn was invented. Hopefully she’ll appreciate the name instead of resenting us for giving her something difficult to spell.”

The feature also reveals that Anna and Alex are engaged to be married, as she listed things she’d been thankful for during her pregnancy while in the middle of a pandemic.

“I’d like to thank 90 Day Fiancé for giving Alex a plethora of characters to impersonate and, in turn, hours of entertainment for me,” she said. “Pregnancy pillow for keeping me upright; you took up the entire bed. Stretch-mark oil—they still happened, but I’m pretty sure I’d have more. Alex for our marriage proposal, scored by that Neil Young record I love.”

Maya, who is engaged to Michael Angarano, had her baby too!
