Hope: Human Resources season 2 character explained

Hope is the appropriately named embodiment of hope within humans and she shows up often in season 2 of Human Resources. The character is voiced by Niecy Nash-Betts.

Hope and Rochelle are best friends and the first time she shows up is right before Rochelle’s client Alice is set to go out on a date. Petra considers Hope a flake who disappears when things get rough.

While Rochelle wants to keep Alice’s expectations tempered, Hope manages to raise them really high with all of her flamboyance and positive energy. It all comes crashing down when it turns out to be a professional dinner and not a date.

Hope immediately leaves, angering Rochelle who follows her and eventually turns into a hate worm. Hope is overworked and even when the entire office is brought down with a cold, she has to keep working which earns Petra’s respect.

When Petra has to work with a non-verbal autistic child named Sal, she goes to Hope for help and together they help Sal express his needs to his parents.
