    And the show has managed to impact a wide swath of people Bridget’s hometown of Manhattan, Kansas.

    “They did a Bridget Everett Day, which was really cool,” Bridget said. “I went to the city park, everybody came out. I did the pictures and signed the autographs. All different walks of life talked about how they loved the show and they felt represented well. Talking to queer kids to older farmers and everybody in between. I feel very proud of that.”

    In fact, the show has helped Bridget gain a newfound appreciation for her roots.

    “There was a part in my life where I didn’t go home for at least five years,” she revealed. “I just didn’t want to be home for whatever reason. I think that was me judging Kansas in a way. So, Sam coming home was sort of like Bridget coming home. I’ve learned to love my hometown all over again.”

    Season two of Somebody Somewhere premieres April 23 at 10:30 p.m. ET on HBO.
