In Season 4 of “Atypical,” Sam (Keir Gilchrist) moves out of his parents’ house, gets put on academic probation and starts to freak out about what he’s going to do after college. And that’s all just in the trailer for the comedy’s upcoming fourth and final season, which Netflix released Monday.
The video, which you can view here and above, begins with Sam’s parents, Doug (Michael Rapaport) and Elsa (Jennifer Jason Leigh), getting him settled in his very own apartment.
“This is where you can sit when we talk when I FaceTime you every night,” Elsa says, beaming at her son, who is on the autism spectrum, with immense pride. “Every night?” Sam asks. “I talked myself down from three times a day, so that is my best and final offer,” Elsa says.
Sam is then seen with Professor Judd (Sara Gilbert), who asks him what he wants to do after college — just before he finds out he’s on academic probation and begins to spiral about his future.
