What the’s status of Living With Yourself season 2, and what will it be about? Created and written by Timothy Greenberg, the Netflix comedy series premiered in October 2019. Living with Yourself season 1 was directed by Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris, the filmmaking duo who previously helmed Little Miss Sunshine, Ruby Sparks, and Battle of the Sexes.
Living with Yourself season 1 stars Paul Rudd as Miles Elliot, a middle-aged man who inadvertently clones himself. After the real-life human and his double come face-to-face and discuss how to proceed next, the lines are blurred as one character seeks self-improvement while the other seeks a normal life. Irish writer-comedian Aisling Bea co-stars as Miles' wife, Kate. In Living with Yourself season 1, the supporting cast is rounded out by Desmin Borges, Alia Shawkat, Zoe Chao, and Karen Pittman.
Living with Yourself season 1 will undoubtedly connect with many Netflix subscribers, whether it's the inherent comedy or the characters' collective anxiety about the future. But Netflix doesn't always renew well-received comedy series, evidenced by the shocking cancellation of Tuca & Bertie. Here's what to expect for Living with Yourself season 2.
Living With Yourself Season 2 Renewal
Netflix hasn't yet ordered Living with Yourself season 2, and probably won't before December 2019. In general, as many subscribers may already know, the streaming service typically waits three to six weeks after new season premieres before making official announcements about future plans. Given that Living with Yourself season 1 released in full on October 18, and has received mostly positive reviews, it seems likely that Netflix will order a second installment before winter commences.
Living With Yourself Season 2 Release Date
If Netflix orders Living with Yourself season 2 in 2019, it seems highly likely that new episodes will premiere in 2020. It all depends on the cast's production schedule, and whether they immediately want to dive back in. Living with Yourself season 1 consists of eight episodes that are approximately 30 minutes in length, so filming won't take that long once the scripts are in place. It's possible that Living with Yourself season 2 will premiere around the same time as season 1, so Friday, October 16, 2020 or thereabouts.
Living With Yourself Season 2 Story
Living with Yourself season 1 concludes with temporary resolution for both versions of Miles, but only after a violent confrontation. Once Kate arrives and discovers that her two Mileses have made a complete mess, she offers the pleasant news that she's pregnant, which leads to a group hug.
Moving forward, Living with Yourself season 2 will theoretically explore the conflict of a man and his clone sharing paternal duties. For some fans, the current eight-episode arc may feel like a fitting conclusion. But given the chemistry between Rudd and Bea, Living with Yourself season 2 feels like a logical next step, if only because there's so much more to explore about the series' unique character dynamics.
