Atypical created by Robia Rashid is one of the Netflix comedies that still flies remarkably under many people’s radars. The ten episodes’ series follows a young man on the autism spectrum who is moving on from high school into college-going into season 3. The release date for season three was announced by the cast on Twitter – Atypical returns on November 1, 2019.
Season two of Atypical saw the Gardner family split up as Sam’s sister Casey began attending a new school and parents Doug (Michael Rapport) and Elsa (Jennifer Jason Leigh) end through a separation. Casey began attending a new private school Clayton where viewers were introduced to two new characters, students Izzie and her boyfriend Nate (Graham Phillips).
Casey initially tries to befriend Izzie but the latter is cold and uninterested in showing the new pupil around, despite being asked to do so. Nate and Casey even start to befriend each other with Casey’s boyfriend Evan (Graham Rogers) suspecting she will fall for him. However, despite being adversaries at the beginning of the season, Izzie and Casey eventually warm to each other. In episode nine, the two almost kiss but are interrupted when Casey’s mother walks into the room. At the end of the season, they are seen quietly holding hands.
In season three, Sam begins college and has to figure out what success means to him while dealing with the pressures of growing up. Meanwhile, at home, his mom, Elsa (Jennifer Jason Leigh), continues her journey of self-discovery as her children become independent. The series also stars Michael Rapaport as Sam’s dad Doug, Bridgette Lundy-Paine as Sam’s sister, Casey, and Amy Okuda as Julia, Sam’s therapist.
We are waiting for the latest news and the official trailer of season three which is not yet published. In the meantime, you can check out the trailer for season two, available to stream now on Netflix.
