Atypical’s 4th season is finally on its way to Netflix. The series has seen three seasons release so far and its last season was aired in November 2019. But it seems that Netflix’s beloved and thought-provoking comedy series seems coming to an end, unfortunately. So let’s take a look at Atypical season 4 and see what to expect from it.
What we have seen so far in Atypical
The original Netflix series, Atypical is created by Robia Rashid. It focuses on the Gardner family and their trials through the years. Keir Gilchrist plays Sam in the series who is the Gardner family’s autistic teenager. The story revolves around his tribulations of growing up. His mother Elsa fusses over and loves him too much that it usually gets overwhelming. She can’t let go of her son Sam somehow, so he exists from his crave and have his freedom.
His father Doug has no idea about anything even if he seems to be a kind person. So his effect on the family is negotiable. And Casey is Sam’s sister and also his best friend. She protects her brother all the time but on the other hand, she is desperate to have her freedom as much as Sam.
The series has been renewed for the new season
The renewal for Atypical has been announced in February 2020. The renewing for the final season also assumed as a tactic of Netflix that to re-cancel the show. But however, it doesn’t matter about renewing the series that much while they allow the creators to conclude the show rather than leaving it unfinished.
Besides the renewal, Netflix released a new short clip of Atypical that confirms it’s the final season. The caption states:
“They’ve brought you laughs, tears, hugs, and homies. Now see how the story concludes. Atypical. The Final Season.”
Robia Rashid also made a statement to The Hollywood Reporter and said,
“I am excited that we are going to do a season 4 of ‘Atypical’. Although I am sad because the end of the series is approaching, I am tremendously grateful to have been able to tell this story. Our fans are great and great defenders of the series. Thank you for being so open to the voice and stories of Sam, and the entire Gardner family. I hope that the legacy of ‘Atypical’ is that there are more voices that cease to be without listening and that even when the series ends, we will continue to tell emotional and funny stories from poorly represented points of view.”
Also, Keir Gilchrist expressed his feelings on his Instagram by saying “excited to bring this story to a close with you all. Stay tuned”
And Brigette Lundy-Paine shared a series of videos and photos from their time working on Atypical like saying goodbye:
“We Are Doing 1 More Season of Atypical !!!!!!! this show has brought me warmth, community and purpose and I hope it has done the same for you. We love you atypies, cazzie nation, Zam Fam, Penguinos, Delsa stans (and Nelsa stans), Paigers and Juliams.”
What can we expect from season 4?
So, with the final season, we are all a little sad but also a little glad for all remaining plot threads will be wrapped up after all.
It seems we will see Casey’s life-shifting eventually after a convincing win on track. So she signs up with Coach Crowley to join UCLA. It also might mean that her relationship with Izzie is still uncertain even if they seemed otherwise in season 3’s 10th episode.
On the other hand, Sammy looks like will be spending the final season moving out into an apartment with Zahid as he maintains his job at the tech store.
And for Elsa and Doug, season 4 seems to be the patch of their marriage. They will fix things together through the course of season 3. But it will be revealed more whether it will continue, in the fourth season.
So yes, we will stay tuned excitedly to see what will happen to them and how their story will end, after all.
When is the ‘Atypical’ Season 4 release date on Netflix?
Filming for season 4 started the previous month, January and it will continue until March. But the release date also depends on how quickly will be the post-production completed also. So, it might be possible for us to see the new season in late 2021. It usually takes about six months from the end of the production until a new season to be released on Netflix. So, Atypical season 4 may be on Netflix sometime between August and October 2021, hopefully.
So we need to show a little patience more and wait at least until more news comes. Till then, here is also the new short clip of Atypical season 4. We will see you soon, we hope!
