Even though it was a remake of a successful Australian show, Jason Gann’s “Wilfred,” which premiered last June on FX, kind of sneaked up on everyone. No one could have expected for it to get so good so quick, to the point where it’s not become must-see TV. To quote Matt’s review of the premiere, “Wilfred” might be “the strangest show on television,” and its this unique oddness — and dark, dark jokes — that it makes so endearing.
“Wilfred” returns with a sneak preview TONIGHT at 10:30 p.m. (the official season two premiere happens next Thursday at 10 p.m.), and Warming Glow was lucky enough to snag an interview with Wilfred’s cheerful, optimistic owner, Jenna, played by Fiona Gubelmann, a delightful ball of sunshine in an otherwise dark universe. We spoke to her – you can do the same via Twitter at @FionaGubelmann – last week about the upcoming season, working with a man dressed as a dog, and, yes, corgis.
