Tv Season Info

Casey (Brigette Lundy-Paine) leaves for her new high school and befriends Izzie (Fivel Stewart), the track team captain. However, this newfound friendship threatens Casey's relationship with Evan (Graham Rogers). Sam (Keir Gilchrist) copes with Casey's leaving through drawing; he is also unable to find a new therapist he could be comfortable with the way he was with Julia (Amy Okuda). Sam's guidance counselor, Ms. Whitaker (Casey Wilson), discovers Sam's drawings and encourages him to apply to university. Doug (Michael Rapaport) learns about Elsa's (Jennifer Jason Leigh) affair and makes her leave the house. However, the stress of housework makes Doug relent and allow Elsa to come back home, though he keeps his distance out of resentment. The second season of "Atypical" also stars Nik Dodani as Sam's best friend Zahid and Jenna Boyd as Sam's pretend girlfriend Paige.

Atypical feels like it's finally becoming the empowering, funny, and deeply human show it always wanted to be.

Chances are you'll fall for him, his family and friends. Don't miss it.

Sep 12, 2018 | Full Review…

While Sam's disorder provides a unique perspective to the world of Atypical, the show is about so much more than that. Season 2 pushes this even further...and finds new ways to enlighten, inspire and surprise by endearing us deeper to its characters.

Sep 4, 2018 | Full Review…

There is no sophomore slump to be found in Atypical. The show is as excellent as it was last year, if not more so. Its sweetness and lack of desire to be crass for crass' sake is just refreshing in today's modern television landscape.

Sep 4, 2018 | Full Review…

Atypical is funny, wise, sometimes a bit wobbly in tone but always's a delightful experience.

Dec 11, 2018 | Full Review…

Aspects of the autistic experience... are often overlooked in our popular culture, and "Atypical" deserves enormous credit for incorporating them, even if it is still heavily flawed.

Sep 22, 2018 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Atypical is irreverent when it needs to be, insightful when it counts and, above all, empathetic to the pressures of growing up - on or off the spectrum.

Sep 13, 2018 | Full Review…

It ambles along, showing us people struggling with the stuff of life without making that struggle compelling enough to make me fully invested in it.

Audience Reviews for Atypical: Season 2

    I can't quite stress how much I enjoy this show. There may well be some criticism that can be applied for not being a fully accurate portrayal of autism, but this doesn't feel like a show about an autistic kid - it is just an incredibly high quality, constantly funny, thoroughly heartwarming and exceptionally well laid out family drama. I would defy anyone not to come away from watching without that contented happiness that great drama can leave you with. It's one of Netflix's best dramas, and should be right at the top of your watch list.

    Esta série só melhora, de episódio para episódio. A segunda temporada, na minha opinião, superou a primeira. Excelentes performances dos atores e os plots são cada vez mais interessantes. Um drama muito bem produzido, acompanhado com alguns momentos de romance e comédia. Ansioso para uma terceira temporada!

    One of the best - if not the best - series out there! The whole cast is amazing but Keir Gilchrist is extraordinary! Finally, a series that educates and brings attention to Autism Spectrum Disorders and the people affected by them, while tearing down misconceptions. Love it!

    What the first season did great the second season did better. The cast has always been fantastic but in particular I feel like Brigette Lundy-Paine, Amy Okuda, and Michael Rapaport were much better in their roles in season two than they were in season one.
