Netflix has decided to renew “Atypical” for Season 2.

According to Deadline, the upcoming season will also have two more episodes compared to Season 1. This means that the Keir Gilchrist-starrer will have a total of 10 episodes next year. “Atypical” streamed on Netflix on Aug. 17 and was created, written and executive produced by Robia Rashid. The series centered on the life of a high school student who has autism.

Sam, who is already 18 years old, is coming to terms with the fact that he’s growing up but hasn’t dated or kissed a girl. He and his best friend, Zahid (Nik Dodani), typically talk about sex and what it would be like for Sam when he finally does the deed. Sam and his older sister, Casey (Brigette Lundy-Paine), also have a very close relationship. Casey protects Sam from the bullies in school and even gave set her dreams aside to be able to watch over him.

Things are starting to get better for Sam in “Atypical” Season 1, but the same cannot be said about his parents, Elsa (Jennifer Jason Leigh) and Doug (Michael Rapaport). While Doug struggled to get closer to Sam, Elsa got tired of taking care of their whole family. She decided to have some fun and met a bartender who she slept with a couple of times.

Towards the end of Season 1, Casey found out that her mom has been cheating on her dad. Her dad also had a feeling that something was going on behind his back. In Season 2, Elsa and Doug’s marriage storyline will certainly take center stage.

Meanwhile, in order to provide accurate representations of autism, the people behind “Atypical” decided to seek the help of Michelle Dean. The PhD graduate from UCLA also worked at the UCLA Center for Autism Research and Treatment. She is currently working as a faculty member at CSU Channel Island. Dean worked closely alongside executive producer Mary Rohlich, Rashid and executive producer and director Seth Gordon, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

As of late, the official release date for “Atypical” Season 2 hasn’t been announced by Netlfix.
