Has Shrinking been renewed for Season 2?: Apple TV+ has been on a roll lately. To compete with its more established and exclusive streaming rival, Netflix, Apple has released a slew of high-caliber originals, while the waiting lineup also has some exciting names. Severance, Servant and Bad Sisters are some recent productions that have done well and truly captured the imagination. Foreign productions like Pachinko have been top-notch, too, giving credence to the claim that Apple TV+ is punching well above its weight. Shrinking is another from that lineup that did great with viewership and critical reviews.
The show premiered only in January and will finish with the finale on 17 March. Jason Segel and Harrison Ford are the billboard names headlining the project, and until now, the ride has been pretty enjoyable. Shrinking does well to adjust the viewer from the starry sci-fi fantastical tone to a more realistic dramedy tone that many can relate to.
We have some exciting news to share with you about a probable season 2 of Shrinking on Apple TV+. Here is what we know about its renewal status as of now.
What happened in Season 1 of Shrinking?
Our tagline for the show reads, “Through its central character of a grieving therapist, this dramedy delves into the bittersweet moments from the professional and personal life of Jimmy Laird (Jason Segel). His newfound honesty with his patients is brutal and ethically dubious, but wildly entertaining to be an audience to.” We have done a complete recap and ending explainer of all individual episodes that you start following here.
