List of Postcards from Buster seasons
1 · 2 · 3

Season 2 of Postcards From Buster debuted on November 27, 2006, on PBS. This season only has ten episodes.

The return of the show for a second season was delayed following the controversy surrounding the Season 1 episode, "Sugartime!" and it has significantly fewer episodes than the first season. Production funding from the Department of Education and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting were eliminated for this season, forcing the show to seek funding from PBS itself, along with other new sponsoring foundations, many of which support LGBT causes,[1] including the Gill Foundation and the David Bohnett Foundation.
