Atypical is a coming-of-age television series created by Robia Rashid for Netflix. With its Atypical Season 2 renewal announcement, Netflix assures that the heartwarming dramedy about a boy learning about the world around him through the fogged lens of autism will have a chance to tell more of its story. So well-received was this slice of life series that its second season had ten episodes, up two from season 1’s eight installments. How many will season 3 have, we wonder.

Atypical Season 2 Plot: What is it about?
Atypical, from Sony Pictures TV Studios, is a coming of age story from the point-of-view of Sam (played by Keir Gilchrist), an 18-year-old on the autistic spectrum searching for love and independence. The show tells the story of Sam, who is an 18-year-old student on the autistic spectrum. Throughout the first season, he began to reach for more independence, and he and the rest of his family had to face an awful lot of changes. While Sam is on his funny and emotional journey of self-discovery, the rest of his family must grapple with change in their own lives while exploring the question: what does it really mean to be “normal”?
