Atypical – Season Three
Two seasons down and Sam Gardner (Keir Gilchrist) is off to college. While Sam navigates a new chapter in his life, his mum (Jennifer Jason Leigh) is left to do the same as she grapples with the idea of her children growing up and becoming independent. A coming of age tale encompassing love, family and life on the autism spectrum, Atypical once again looks to give us pause for thought on what it means to be ‘normal’.
Season three of Atypical hits Netflix on Friday November 1.
