The show was aired for the first time on August 11, 2017, and since then, it has made a considerably good fan base. The show depicts an 18-year-old autistic boy named Sam Gardner whose journey in the university has been full of hiccups, and he got to see a new side of the world. After the first season, it has been renewed for the second season on September 7, 2018, and subsequently renewed for the third season on November 1, 2019. The show has mostly shown how autistics have to deal with society, but it would have been better if there wouldn’t have been discrepancies while showing autism.
The story so far
The atypical season 3 a lot has changed for Sam Gardner. He enrolls in college and gets to see a completely different aspect of life, where the challenges are different, and the same goes for opportunities. In season 3, he studied arts and got some newer experiences of life. He got into intimacy with her crush named Paige Hardaway, whom he has loved for long. He also got to see a more modern dimension of the society and the kind of difficulties one encounters in the day to day life is for an autistic
But the new growth has influenced his thought process, and he took risks which he wouldn’t have considered otherwise. He went to the extent of even missing an ethics test, which will have consequences for sure, but this goes on to prove how involved he is with his new society and life at the university.
Is there a date for the renewal of season 4?
As of now, the official dates aren’t confirmed, but if the fourth season is to be aired, it is going to be in the second half of 2020. The show has been able to make a fan base, and the storyline also demands for the next season, but as we all know, the onus is on Netflix. So a definite date at this point can’t be predicted.
The expected storyline
The fundamental essence of continuance lies in the fact that there should be something missing or incomplete. The storyline so far has tried to sort out the differences by the end of season 3. Sam’s parents, who were inconsistent with each other, have been able to sort out their differences. The same goes for sam when he reconsiders his hatred towards his friend Zahid, and they became friends again. So the primary issues seemed to have resolved, but as we all know, the possibilities are infinite when it comes to storytelling.
If the show is renewed for the fourth season, the possible storyline can be centered around Casey’s dream to get into UCLA. Another aspect could be Gardner’s parents, who have to deal with their bitter past and to cope up with their children.
As far as official information is concerned, no details have surfaced regarding the new cast.
