The second season of the TV series about growing up in the 1990s, Mir! Druzhba! Zhvachka! (Peace! Friendship! Chewing Gum!), will premiere on TNT on May 24 at 21:00. The new episodes will also be available on the PREMIER video service. The first season of the series, which was created by Good Story Media, was released in 2020 and became a leader of the evening time slot and a highlight of the year. It was recognized as one of the best TV series in 2020, according to film critics.

The second season of Mir! Druzhba! Zhvachka! continues to look at the 1990s and the trends of that decade, but now does this through a different lens. The plot is less nostalgic. Instead, the nostalgia is replaced by the challenges that various generations faced during this time. One of the main themes of the new season is the transition from childhood into adulthood. It was important for the series director Anton Fyodorov to show how the four main teenage characters transform against the backdrop of other people and events. Mir! Druzhba! Zhvachka! will also have a new sound in the second season. New compositions by the band KINO were remixed and added to the already iconic soundtrack by Roman Litvinov (Mujuice). These arrangements were created specifically for the TNT series.

The eight new episodes will tell the story of the Ryabinin family, which is still struggling to recover from the events of summer 1993. In the new season, the action takes place in 1994 and the main characters are now one year older. Nadezhda is supporting the whole family through her work in the investment foundation Vitalinvest. Her husband, unemployed writer Fyodor, has started a never-ending house repairs project and is now speaking more to his mother as he dives into a self-searching journey. Meanwhile, Sanya is getting ready to meet Zhenya, who returned from Germany because her parents were not able to live together and have separated. Vova is trying to earn what little money he can while his father is paid in shares and furniture and tech appliances are carried out of their apartment to settle debts. Ilya is increasingly losing touch with reality as he gets lost in the fantasy world of The Lord of the Rings. The fight between the Caucasians and the Afghans is still on, now headed by Zurab Beso’s son and Vitya - and no one yet knows that Alik has survived.
