Netflix has renewed Atypical for a Second Season and has added two more episodes to the follow-up. Atypical tells the story of a high functioning autistic boy Sam Gardner, trying to lead a normal high-school life - which also importantly involves dating and falling in love.

Season 1's suspenseful ending isn't the only reason why the show got renewed. Though lost in the hype around the other Netflix show 'The Defenders', Atypical was well received by the audiences and the critics. The warm and compassionate tone coupled with great humour presented a doorway for spreading awareness about Autism. It also tackled some very challenging topics about having an autistic family member with a lot of grace and dignity.
