It’s been a very busy Christmas for Netflix in 2019, and we’ve seen a whole variety of holiday-themed titles arrive throughout the season, including the sitcom Merry Happy Whatever. After a lukewarm reception, will the Original series be receiving a second season on Netflix? Let’s find out.
Netflix has often faced mixed reactions from its sitcoms, having failed to impress with previous series such as Disjointed and All About the Washingtons. While the series has struggled to impress critics, hopefully, fan support will carry Merry Happy Whatever to a second season.
Family time at Christmas isn’t for the faint-hearted, especially for Don the patriarch of the family. As he tries to balance the stress and demands of his complicated family during the Christmas season, his youngest daughter comes home but is accompanied by her new boyfriend.
Has Merry Happy Whatever been renewed for season 2?
Official Netflix Renewal Status: Pending (Last Updated: 09/12/2019)
At the time of writing Netflix has yet to confirm the renewal status of Merry Happy Whatever, but we can expect to learn the future of the series in the near future. Typically, Netflix doesn’t make renewal announcements within the first few weeks of a series debuting and opts to wait for least a month for the viewing stats to come in.
It’s rare to see Netflix renew a series within a week of release, but if a series explodes in popularity, it’s been known to happen.
Does the story warrant another season?
A sitcom based on the holiday season, centered around a dysfunctional family writes itself. There’s always more holidays to be had and always more awkward social interactions with your family to follow. Netflix could use Merry Happy Whatever as an annual Christmas sitcom release, or other for other holidays such as Independence Day and Halloween.
What has the response been from subscribers?
It seems the most positive response has been Ashley Tisdale’s role in Merry Happy Whatever. Tisdale plays the role of Kayla Quinn, daughter of Don and a real estate agent, who was yet to reveal her homosexuality to her family.
