Fans on the internet are wondering if Netflix canceled Atypical.
Netflix comedy-drama Atypical, as the title implies, is not your typical age drama. It adds a different twist as it depicts autism with humor and authenticity that is rare in a drama series.
The third season is the strongest so far, leaving viewers enthusiastically anticipating the fourth season. The show explores the life of Sam Gardner, who gets diagnosed with an autistic spectrum disorder. The series looks at his relationship with his friends and family as he seeks freedom and independent life.
Recently, fans cannot help wonder whether Atypical got canceled on Netflix. Well, the answer is both yes and no. Please stick with us for the details.
Atypical Season 4 will be the Final One

Atypical is set to return with the fourth and final season. Netflix confirmed the comedy-drama would hit the streaming platform with ten new episodes; however, the precise date is unknown. The final season will supposedly air in 2021.
In a statement, creator Robia Rashid said:
I’m thrilled we’ll be doing a season four of Atypical. And while I’m so sad to be nearing the end of this series, I am extremely grateful to have been able to tell this story.
The showrunner added:
Our fans have been such beautiful, vibrant supporters of this show. Thank you for being so open to Sam’s voice and stories, and those of the entire Gardner family. It’s my hope that the legacy of Atypical is that more unheard voices continue to be heard and that even after this series ends, we keep telling funny, emotional stories from underrepresented points of view.
Keir Gilchrist plays a teenager on the autism spectrum, searching for happiness and freedom. Jennifer Jason Leigh, Michael Rapaport, and Brigette Lundy-Paine are amongst the rest of the cast.
Atypical is one of just a tiny percentage of the Netflix scripted series to make it four seasons. The streamer carries a knack for rounding up the original shows pretty early. Around ten scripted series concluded after four or more seasons, with about the same number ending after three and the rest catching the ax after merely one or two years.
Netflix usually compares the show’s viewership — precise algorithms of which have never been made public — with the expense of producing another season and whether such monetary resources are best diverted to new series that might attract further subscribers.
Fans Were Outraged After Netflix Decided to Cancel Atypical After Season 4
Fans of Netflix’s Atypical were massively disappointed after the streaming giants revealed the original show would be coming to an end with the fourth and final season airing in 2021.
Along with the clips from the past three seasons, Netflix announced:
Join Sam on one last expedition. Atypical will return for a fourth and final season. They’ve brought you laughs, tears, hugs, and homies. Now see how the story concludes. Atypical. The final season.
Viewers of the show that follows 19-year-old Sam on the autism spectrum, instantly had a lot of feelings concerning the last season.
Most of the Atypical fans online were upset that the show would be drawing to a close, despite boasting a huge number of loyal supporters.
Another great show who deserves more seasons… Why should we bother getting attached to new characters if you're not willing to tell their stories fully 🙄#renewannewithane

Some were just grateful that the show will get a shot to wrap up instead of just getting canceled without some closure for the fans.
At least we get a final season unlike Runaways. No closure. Open ended.
