The series is filled with witty and touching moments that moved the hearts of both audiences and critics alike, receiving an almost perfect critic score of 96% on Rotten Tomatoes and an audience score of 84%.
Its positive reception translated all the way to the Netflix series being nominated for multiple awards, including an Emmy Award for Outstanding Short Form Comedy or Drama Series in its first year.
Despite its awards and how amazing this show proved to be, it ultimately was not picked up by Netflix for a third season and is, unfortunately, concluding this year. However, there’s no need to cry just yet! With enough petition, Netflix has provided previously canceled shows with one more season and the same could happen for Special.
Special season 3 release date
The first two seasons of Special premiered in spring in their respective years, meaning season 3 would air around that time in 2022.
Hopefully, we won’t have to wait too long before we can see season 3. We’ll keep you posted on the future of the series.
Special season 3 cast
The hypothetical season 3 cast will, perhaps, have the same as the previous season’s cast with Ryan O’Connell returning as Ryan Hayes, Jessica Hecht as Karen Hayes, Punam Patel as Kim Laghari.
Special season 3 synopsis
If there was a season 3, we would expect it to pick up from where season two left off with Ryan accepting his identity and embracing all his differences. Perhaps we’ll see Ryan continue to make us proud and achieve goals like starting a family or raising awareness for Cerebral Palsy.
Special season 3 trailer
Hopefully, upon enough petition, we will also get a trailer for the series, but as of right now, there is no season 3 trailer or teaser on the way. Fingers crossed for that as well as the original series’ overall fate to change.
While it is very somber news to hear that this eccentric series will not be returning for another season, Special season 2 premiered on Netflix yesterday and perhaps, this will be a great way to cheer you up.Next: Best Netflix shows coming in 2021
