‘Atypical’ Renewed for Final Season at Netflix

Atypical is getting a final season at Netflix.

The streaming giant has renewed the Peabody-nominated comedy series for a fourth and final run of 10, half-hour episodes. The final season will air in 2021.

 Keir Gilchrist stars as a 19-year-old on the autism spectrum as he searches for love and independence. Jennifer Jason Leigh, Michael Rapaport and Brigette Lundy-Paine round out the cast of the comedy from Sony Pictures Television.

Atypical becomes one of only a small fraction of Netflix scripted originals to make it to four seasons. The streamer has a penchant for wrapping up originals early in their runs. Around 10 scripted originals have ended after four or more seasons, with nearly that tally wrapping after three and the bulk getting the ax largely after one or two cycles. Netflix typically weighs a show’s viewership — specific details of which have never been revealed — with the cost to produce another season and whether those financial resources are better allocated for new shows that would bring in more subscribers.
