Production for the second season began on August 6, 2012.
For its second season 2 Broke Girls moved to 9 pm ET/PT after Two and a Half Men was moved to Thursdays, and remained there until early in its third season.
By the end of the season, the movie about Caroline's life has been made (albeit with some "creative license" changes), but Caroline destroys a ,000 on-loan dress at the premiere, which wipes out the girls' savings and returns them to "broke" status.
Also featured starting late in the first season is their neighbor and part-time boss Sophie (Jennifer Coolidge), a Polish immigrant who runs the house-cleaning company Sophie's Choice.
During most of the first season, Max is also a part-time nanny for the twin babies of Peach Landis (Brooke Lyons), who during the season adopts Caroline's horse Chestnut.
At the end of each episode, a tally shows how much they have made toward their goal of 0,000.
Early in the second season, Sophie lends the girls ,000, which is enough for them to start their business.
Meanwhile, despite her advancing age, Sophie becomes pregnant with Oleg's child.
