However, she soon discovers that her girlfriend has not yet come out to her conservative family.

Also joining the cast are GLOW star Alison Brie, Parks and Recreation’s Aubrey Plaza and Schitt’s Creek‘s Dan Levy. There’s no word yet as to the roles they or Levy will play.

Mary Steenburgen and Victor Garber have also joined the cast to play Davis’ character’s conservative parents.

The movie is written and directed by out talent Clea Duvall, who in 1999 played the lead role in lesbian satire But I’m A Cheerleader.

Happiest Season is set for release in November and it’s currently being filmed in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania.

As well as expressing their excitement, eagle-eyed fans took to social media to share photos and clips of the actors on set.

Kristen Stewart wants to ‘make movies and kids’ with girlfriend Dylan Meyer

Last November, Kristen Stewart said she “couldn’t f–king wait” to propose to her girlfriend Dylan Meyer.

Radio host Howard Stern asked Kristen if she was “in love right now,” to which she replied, “Yes, the answer is yes.”

“The first time that I told her that I loved her, we were like sitting in this random bar,” she said.

“I’ve known her for like six years, but we only started seeing each other like two weeks in.

“It was just like, it was literally like the day that I met her, all bets were off.

“We met years ago on a movie, I hadn’t seen her in two years and she had just walked up to a friends’ birthday party. I was just, like, ‘Where have you been and how have I not known you?’

“I want to make movies and kids with this girl, I can’t believe I’m so lucky.”
