Netflix has renewed Atypical for a fourth and final season. 

The coming-of-age story about Sam, a 19-year-old on the autism spectrum, will be back for one more season, which will premiere sometime in 2021. 

“I’m thrilled we’ll be doing a season four of Atypical,” said series creator Robia Rashad. “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. 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.”

Starring as series lead Sam is Keir Gilchrist. Also starring are Jennifer Jason Leigh, Michael Rapaport, Brigette Lundy-Paine, Nik Dodani, Jenna Boyd, Amy Okuda, Graham Rogers and Fivel Stewart. 

News of the renewal comes after season three debuted back in November.
