2 Broke Girls is a CBS comedy show about two young women that are broke and are trying to start a cupcake business. 2 Broke Girls ran for six seasons before being canceled by the network.


2 Broke Girls is centered on two characters: Kat Dennings as Max Black - a sassy waitress from a poor, working class background - and Beth Behrs as Caroline Wesbox Channing - a former wealthy socialite who lost all her money when her father was arrested for a Ponzi scheme. In the pilot episode, Caroline meets Max when she gets a job at the same diner. By the end of the pilot, Caroline (and her horse, Chestnut) have moved in with Max.

The six season series chronicled the lives of these characters as they worked toward their dream of owning a cupcake business.

The main cast also includes:

  • Earl - the elderly cashier at Williamsburg Diner. Earl often shares stories from his days of being a jazz musician.
  • Oleg - a Ukrainian cook at Williamsburg Diner who is constantly making inappropriate sexual comments and jokes. He falls in love, marries, and has a family with Sophie.
  • Han Lee - the Korean-American owner of the Williamsburg Diner. Han is often the target of Max's jokes.
  • Sophie Kachinsky - a Polish woman who lives in the apartment above Max and Caroline's. Sophie owns Sophie's Choice Cleaning Service.

2 Broke Girls is still fairly small fandom on AO3 and FFN, though it's pretty big on Tumblr.

A Tumblr fan favorite character is Max Black, mainly in part of Kat Dennings' portrayal of the character. Due to this it's common to find crossovers with Dennings' other major role of Darcy Lewis. Crossover fics with the Marvel Cinematic Universe are the most popular.

Shipping mainly deals with the femslash pairing of Max/Caroline (pairing name is "Maxoline")
