Atypical is closing in on a Season 2 Netflix renewal, but the series almost never made it out the gate.
Netflix chief Ted Sarandos revealed that the streaming company initially passed on the comedy, per Variety:
He’s delighted as he talks about a series, “Atypical,” that recently got passed over by Netflix’s comedy team before getting scooped up by the young adult division of the company. “I couldn’t stop smiling,” he says. “If there was some mechanism inside Netflix where you had multiple paths in, it wouldn’t just die because one person said no.”
Are you glad Atypical was given another chance at Netflix? Hoping for Season 2?
Stay tuned as we continue to monitor the cancel/renew status of Atypical Season 2…
