Streamz announced their spring program today. We can already predict the return of Uncles expect, but also the series Billie vs Benjamin return. Actors Ward Kerremans and Charlotte Timmers will again be seen as Benjamin and Billie.
Billie vs. Benjamin started exactly two years ago on Streamz. The series is about two opposites who, despite their differences, are still interested in each other. That is not to the liking of either group of friends, but the two still seem to find a way.
Shortly after the release of the first season, Streamz announced that there would be a second. That season will be available in full on the streaming service from March 7, 2024.
Billie vs. Benjamin
The series is about Billie (Charlotte Timmers) and Benjamin (Ward Kerremans). Despite their different political beliefs, they fall in love with each other. Billie has been a vegetarian for a long time, while Benjamin likes to eat a good piece of meat. Billie is concerned about inequality in the world, Benjamin about the number of profiteers.
The first season shows the differences, but also the similarities between the two. This sometimes leads to painful, but also funny moments. Especially when the two groups of friends start mixing. Especially the two best friends Marie (Joke Emmers) and Tommy (Jeroen Perceval) have quite a clear opinion.
In the second season, Billie is heavily pregnant. In doing so, they encounter many important decisions that turn out not to be easy for two people with such different opinions. This creates a discussion about washable and disposable diapers, about plastic or wooden toys, and so on.
Meanwhile, Marie and Tommy have been promoted to godfather and godmother, which doesn’t make things any better. Certainly not when Benjamin, who became a victim of senseless violence in the first season, targets some young people from the neighborhood.
