Netflix’s Peabody Award-nominated series “Atypical” has been renewed for a fourth and final season, the streaming giant announced Monday.

The new season will premiere in 2021 with 10 original episodes and returning stars Jennifer Jason Leigh, Keir Gilchrist, Michael Rapaport, Brigette Lundy-Paine, Nik Dodani, Jenna Boyd, Amy Okuda, Graham Rogers and Fivel Stewart.

“I’m thrilled we’ll be doing a season four of ‘Atypical. 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,” the show’s creator, writer and executive producer Robia Rashid said in a statement.

“Our fans have been such beautiful, vibrant supporters of this show,” Rashid continued. “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.”

“Atypical” follows Sam (Gilchrist), a 19-year-old on the autism spectrum as he searches for love and independence on a funny and emotional journey of self-discovery.

“Atypical” is produced for Netflix by Sony Pictures Television in association with Exhibit A and Weird Brain Inc., with Rashid, Mary Rohlich and Seth Gordon as executive producers.
