Netflix Renews Atypical for Season 3; Disney Channel Says Just Roll With It

Atypical

Netflix has renewed Atypical, the critically acclaimed original series created, written and executive produced by Robia Rashid (How I Met Your Mother, Will & Grace) for a third season. Atypical season 3 will feature 10 half-hour episodes. In season two of the series, which launched in September 2018, Elsa and Doug faced the aftermath of their marriage crisis and Casey tried to adjust to her new school, while Sam prepared for life after graduation. The cast returning for season three has not yet been confirmed. Atypical season two starred Keir Gilchrist (United States of Tara), Jennifer Jason Leigh (The Hateful Eight), Michael Rapaport (Justified), Brigette Lundy-Paine (Margot vs. Lily), Amy Okuda (How to Get Away with Murder), Raul Castillo (Looking, Seven Seconds), Nik Dodani (Alex Strangelove), Graham Rogers (Ray Donovan, The Kominsky Method), Fivel Stewart (Hansel & Gretel: Warriors of Witchcraft), Jenna Boyd (The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants) and Casey Wilson (Happy Endings, Gone Girl).

Atypical is a coming of age story that follows Sam (played by Keir Gilchrist), an 18-year-old on the autistic spectrum as he searches for love and independence. While Sam is on his funny and emotional journey of self-discovery, the rest of his family must grapple with change in their own lives as they all struggle with the central theme: what does it really mean to be normal? Jennifer Jason Leigh stars as his mother, Elsa, who is on her own journey of self-discovery. Michael Rapaport plays his father, Doug. Brrigette Lundy-Paine plays Sam's sister, Casey, and Amy Okuda plays a therapist, Julia.


Just Roll With It

Disney Channel has ordered Just Roll With It, an innovative multi-camera sitcom from co-showrunners Adam Small and Trevor Moore (Disney XD's Walk the Prank). The first-of-its-kind format is a hybrid of a scripted family comedy and an improvisational comedy, in which the studio audience members select the outcome of certain scenes while the cast just rolls with it. Filmed before a studio audience, the unique series is centered around the blended Bennett-Blatt family and features step-siblings Blair and Owen, who could not be more different. Blair, played by Kaylin Hayman (One Day at a Time), often a rebel without a cause, is the polar opposite of her strict, regimented, ex-military mom Rachel, played by Suzi Barrett (Kirby Buckets). Ramon Reed (Broadway musical The Lion King) plays Owen, a born athlete with a taste for scheduling and organization, who is always trying to clean up his creative and charismatic father and morning radio show host Byron, played by Tobie Windham (Walk the Prank). Despite their differences, the Bennett-Blatt clan, and the actors who play them, know how to take whatever life - and the studio audience - throws at them ... and "Just Roll With It."

At the sound of a horn, the actors break from the scene and go backstage while the audience decides which of three outrageous stunts will take place next. Once votes are cast electronically, the actors return to the stage to continue the scene, waiting for the next surprise, which could be anything from being asked to eat a disgusting sardine, grasshopper and ice cream burrito to a man falling through the roof of the Bennett-Blatt home.
