Atypical, Netflix's smart and sweet coming-of-age dramedy about a high schooler on the autism spectrum, is back for Season 2 on Sept. 7. The streaming service released the first trailer for the new season on Monday, and if you like to get choked up at families coming together in the face of adversity, this is a show for you.
Season 2 will find Sam (Keir Gilchrist) struggling with a lot of change in his life. His parents Elsa (Jennifer Jason Leigh) and Doug (Michael Rapaport) are separated, his sister Casey (Brigitte Lundy-Paine) is going to another school, and he'll be graduating soon. The people Sam loves are going through their own stuff too, so he'll have to learn to make his own decisions and find his own way in the world (which doesn't mean his family and friends won't be there for him, of course).
If you haven't already watched the first season of Atypical, now's a perfect time to catch up. Season 1 of the charming (and often awkward) teen series consists of an easily digestible eight half-hour episodes. Meaning, you could get completely caught up in one afternoon! So get to watching, because based on this trailer the heartwarming new season may be just what we all need this fall.
Atypical Season 2 premieres Friday, Sept. 7 on Netflix.
