Atypical is a hidden gem on Netflix. You’ve probably passed by it in the content queue a dozen times without stopping to read the synopsis or give it a chance. But once you hit play on the quirky family sitcom, the show will have you hooked. The second season of the Netflix original launched on September 7, but some fans have already breezed through all 10 episodes. So, even though most people are still watching the current season, what do we know about Atypical season 3? Here’s everything we know right now.
In case you’ve stumbled here but you haven’t seen any of the show, let us give you a quick rundown on what you can expect: The show follows Sam Gardner, an autistic 18-year-old, who decides to start dating. “The theme of Atypical is that no one’s normal, but Sam’s probably the most normal one of all of them,” show creator Robia Rashid explains. The show lives up to that, highlighting the struggles of all of Sam’s family members to navigate relationships, responsibilities and the changes life throws at you.
“One of the cool things about Atypical is that this is a guy who’s just like all of us,” Rashid adds.

Will there be an Atypical season 3?
This is your one warning that there are spoilers for Atypical season 2 ahead. Go back to Netflix, finish your 10 episodes, and then come back if you don’t want us to ruin any plot points.
It’s too soon to tell if Netflix will renew the show. The first season released back in August of 2017, and it was renewed for its second season on September 13, 2017. That means we might hear as early as October whether the show has earned itself Atypical season 3.
The big cliffhanger at the end of the second season was the blossoming romance between Casey Gardner (Brigette Lundy-Paine) and Izzy (Fivel Stewart). This obviously presents a problem since Casey has been dating Evan (Graham Rogers), also known as Evan Tuba, since the first season of the series. As if that weren’t enough of a love triangle, Izzy and Casey had just reconciled after a spat over Nick (Graham Phillips), Izzy’s boyfriend, briefly tore the two friends apart. For those of you keeping track, that means Evan likes Casey, who likes Izzy, who’s dating Nick, who likes Casey.
We’re sure to see a development in this complicated dynamic if Netflix proceeds with Atypical season 3. Also sure to be explored is Sam’s move to college. We know he got accepted to the local college to do a program in scientific illustration, but will his high school routine translate to this new chapter? It’s a topic we hope the show gets a chance to explore with a renewal.
