Netflix’s fourth season, Atypical, a coming-of-age drama has dropped on its streaming platform. This will mark the end of the series.
Fans have waited nearly two years to see another chapter with Gardners.
Netflix can decide to renew or cancel any show for many reasons. Here are some of the reasons Atypical Season 5 is not going ahead.
WHY ATYPICAL WON’T RETURN FOR SEASON 5
Netflix announced in February 2020 that Season 4 was approved by Netflix. The show also said that it would be it’s last.
Netflix rarely explains the end of a series, so there was no reason for the termination.
Atypical debuted in 2017 and quickly became a beloved indie series that has a growing fan base.
Netflix will never know the reason behind Atypical’s cancellation. However, Netflix has a few factors it considers in making its decision.
NETFLIX RENEWAL PROTOCOL
Netflix typically considers whether a show should be renewed or canceled before investing in new material.
Netflix is known for its exclusive titles and new subscribers.
Netflix often caps exclusive shows around season 2 or 3, but Atypical‘s four seasons run is a remarkable feat.
The crew did not find out about Atypical‘s last season shocking. Robia Rashid, the creator, knew all about it well before Season 4 began.
Retrospectively, this allowed the creative group ample time for each character’s storyline to be completed to a satisfactory standard for fans.
Early reviews say that the show’s ending provides closure while keeping a glimmer of hope for its characters.
