In the first season of this clever comedy, 16-year-old Tessa is uprooted from her beloved New York City and planted in the suburban "purgatory" of Chatswin. But the suburbs aren't all bad as Tessa and her dad, George, discover, and with the help of the overly friendly suburbanites, the two find ways to survive their culture shock. Gradually, however, George and Tessa started to become what they swore they would never be: suburbanites.
Now, as the third season begins, they find themselves more at odds with bucolic Chatswin than ever before. George struggles to once again navigate life as a single suburban dad after a tumultuous breakup with Dallas, while Tessa, abandoned by her mother at the start of her senior year, no longer has any interest in trying to fit in. She and George recommit to walking amongst the suburban hordes without becoming them. Only Chatswin's pull is stronger than they anticipated. Meanwhile, the Shays suffer from empty-nest syndrome after Ryan goes off to college -- never mind that Lisa is still at home -- and Dallas deals with the loss of her relationship with George. But no one suffers from the breakup more than Dalia (according to Dalia), who misses her "Daddy Altman," and amplifies her feud with Tessa. Welcome back to SUBURGATORY.
