Netflix’s comedy-drama series Special premiered its second season in May 2021. The heartwarming series portrays daily life problems faced by the members of the LGBTQ community for their acceptance from the eyes of the main character Ryan Kayes. In the second season, we saw Ryan accepting himself and inching closer to his goals. Now it will be interesting to see where the story head in Special Season 3? But will there be a third season? Let’s find out.
Will There Be Special Season 3?
The second season of Netflix’s comedy-drama series premiered its second season on May 20, 2021. Clearly, it has been almost a year since the season, and Netflix has not made any official announcement about the show’s return. But if we go according to various reports available on the internet, the series has been canceled for Special Season 3.
Despite the widely positive feedback, Netflix’s decision to cancel the series has been surprising. However, we have some glimmer of hope, the lead actor and the creator of the series Ryan O’Connell has stated, “People will be surprised that Special is ending, but this is just the tip! I’m not finished telling stories about disability. This is really just a beginning of a new chapter, so hang tight, baby, I’m coming!” So let us wait for some good news to come our way regarding Special Season 3.
Special Season 3: What Could Happen Next?
The show’s narrative follows a gay man Ryan. The show aims at highlighting different troubles that the LGTBQ community faces in society, as they are not rightly accepted in mainstream society. LGBTQ people stumble hard to prove their identities. Thus, Ryan chooses to rewrite his individuality, and eventually, he has the life that he wanted for himself.
As the series unfolds, the episodes grow more entertaining to watch while also conveying a social message to the audience. The show’s central subject was acceptance of one’s disability in all of its flaws and fears, rather than teaching its viewers how to live with one.
Upon its return with Special Season 3, the show would continue the story from where the second season ended. Ryan accepted his identity and welcomed all his dissimilarities. In the next season, we might see Ryan continuing his journey to achieve his goals successfully. The next season might also feature Ryan starting a family or raising awareness for Cerebral Palsy.
The cast of the series features many familiar faces in the series. The cast of the series is led by Ryan O’Connell as Ryan Kayes, a gay man with mild cerebral palsy. The show also features Jessica Hecht in the role of Ryan’s mother, Karen Kayes, Punam Patel plays Kim Laghari, and Marla Mindelle is enacting Olivia. Meanwhile, in the cast, we also have Augustus Prew playing Carey, Patrick Fabian as Phil, and Bonnie in the role of Samantha Lee.
Furthermore, we see Kat Rogers as Caitie and Jason Michael Snow as Keaton. If the series is returning with Special Season 3, most of the main cast members like O’Connell and Kaynes are expected to return in their respective roles. On the other hand, there might also be some new cast addition.
