Netflix hasn’t been shy in tackling serious issues in its originals and its latest series, Atypical has certainly stirred the pot with a mixed reaction as it tackles autism. Will the series be renewed for a second season and when would it likely release on Netflix? We’ll take a look below.
As we mentioned, this series picks up on quite a controversial subject much like many other series Netflix has produced recently. Just this year, Netflix released a controversial series that dealt with teen suicide in the form of 13 Reasons Why or Dear White People which tackles racism. While that series will likely come out as the winner in terms of which is the better show, there are some great moments in Atypical that touch on what it’s like living with autism from different perspectives.
Now let’s discuss a possible second season.
Atypical Season 2 Renewal Status
Official renewal status: Not yet renewed (Last Updated: 08/12/2017)
The series has yet to be renewed and honestly, we can’t call as to whether Atypical will be getting a second season. The show shares the most similarities with 13 Reasons Why, which got renewed around a month or so after its first season released. With that said, many of the summer titles with a similar setup such as Gypsy and Girlboss have been cancelled and we can foresee an instance where it’s cancelled.
If you look at the critic reviews for Atypical, they seem to be very mixed throughout the first few days of release. On Netflix itself, user reviews also seem to be fairly mixed with people either submitting five-star reviews or one-star reviews.
You can expect to hear about the renewal status in the next month or so.
When would season 2 of Atypical be on Netflix?
The show would almost certainly be following a yearly cycle, much like other shows of this calibre that Netflix produces. That would mean we could expect a summer 2018 release date but once again, this depends on the renewal status.
