It’s finally happening! Netflix’s most heartfelt comedy series Atypical is returning for a second season, and now we finally know the date. Atypical, the “coming of age” romantic comedy (with a twist) series will be returning for its second season on September 7th!
Atypical follows an 18-year-old boy named Sam. Sam (played by Keir Gilchrist) is on the autism spectrum and has finally decided that it’s time to step out of his comfort zone in order to find love and independence. If you’ve watched the first season of the series, you’ll remember how important penguins are to the plot, so naturally, when the season two premiere date was announced, the adorable aquatic birds broke the news to everyone.

[row]”Atypical is a coming of age story that follows Sam (played by Keir Gilchrist), an 18-year-old on the autistic spectrum as he searches for love and independence. While Sam is on his funny yet emotional journey of self-discovery, the rest of his family must grapple with change in their own lives as they all struggle with the central theme: what does it really mean to be normal? Jennifer Jason Leigh stars as his mother, Elsa, who is on her own journey of self-discovery.
Michael Rapaport plays his father, Doug. Brigette Lundy-Paine (Margot vs Lily, The Glass Castle) plays Sam’s sister Casey and Amy Okuda (How to Get Away with Murder) plays his therapist Julia. The series produced by Sony Pictures Television is created and written by Robia Rashid (The Goldbergs, How I Met Your Mother, Will & Grace). Academy Award-winning producer Seth Gordon (Baywatch, The Goldbergs, Horrible Bosses, The King of Kong) directs several episodes. Rashid and Gordon serve as executive producers along with Mary Rohlich, and with Jennifer Jason Leigh serving as a producer.”[/row]
