The third season of the popular series launched on Netflix on November 1, 2019. The critically-acclaimed original series is created, written and executive produced by Robia Rashid (How I Met Your Mother, Will & Grace).
Atypical is a coming of age story that follows Sam (played by Keir Gilchrist), a 19-year-old on the autism spectrum as he searches for love and independence. While Sam is on his funny and emotional journey of self-discovery, the rest of his family must grapple with change in their own lives as they all struggle with the ongoing central theme of the series: what does it really mean to be normal?
In season three, Sam starts his first year of college and is faced with the challenge of figuring out what success means for him, while adjusting to the changes that come with growing up.
Jennifer Jason Leigh stars as his mother, Elsa, who continues her own journey of self-discovery as her children grow older and more independent, Michael Rapaport plays his father, Doug, and Brigette Lundy-Paine plays Sam’s sister, Casey. Recurring on the third season are Sara Gilbert as Sam’s new Ethics professor, and Eric McCormack as his art professor.
Academy Award-winning producer Seth Gordon and Mary Rohlich, who have both worked on hit series and films, including Baywatch, The Goldbergs and Horrible Bosses, also executive produce alongside Rashid. Jennifer Jason Leigh also serves as a producer.
Michelle Dean, who received her PhD from UCLA and worked at the UCLA Center for Autism and Research and Treatment before joining the faculty of CSU Channel Island, was also brought into the production to help guide an accurate depiction of autism spectrum disorder. The series is produced by Sony Pictures Television for Netflix.
