Fans will see more of Raven Goodwin in Season 2 of “SMILF.”

According to Deadline, Goodwin has been promoted to a series regular for the sophomore run of the Showtime series.

Goodwin was a recurring star in Season 1 of the Frankie Shaw-created series, appearing in seven out of eight episodes of the show’s freshman run. Goodwin plays Eliza, the best friend of Shaw’s character Bridgette. Based on her character description, Eliza is sarcastic, self-deprecating and is always there to help Bridge out. Eliza is a big girl and she embraces it, even if others in her life give her a hard time about it.

Shortly after her promotion was announced, Goodwin took to Instagram to reveal how excited she is for her bigger role on the show’s next season.

Goodwin is coming off a series regular role on BET’s drama series “Being Mary Jane,” which will conclude its four-season run with a two-hour movie finale later this year. Goodwin’s other acting credits include Nickelodeon’s “Just Jordan,” ABC Family’s “Huge,” and Disney Channel’s “Good Luck Charlie.”

Plot details about Season 2 are being kept under wraps, but in an interview with Variety last January, Shaw said that the next season of the Golden Globe-nominated series will involve further adventures for Bridgette in trying to find “her path” or, at minimum, a steady job. In Season 1, Bridgette worked as an actress, a tutor and a collections specialist. She also tried out for the WNBA, but didn’t make it to the next round.

Shaw added that Bridgette will also deal with “the politics of day care” next season as her son Larry (Anna and Alexandra Reimer) gets older. Shaw also promised that the backstories of the supporting characters — Rafi (Miguel Gomez), Nelson (Samara Weaving) and Tutu (Rosie O’Donnell) — will be fleshed out more.

Season 1 was filmed in Los Angeles except for a few exteriors in Boston’s Southie district. But according to Variety, Season 2 is likely to be shot on location in Boston, so viewers can expect more Beantown grit to the look and feel of the show next season.
