Netflix has renewed The Kominsky Method for a third and final season.
The series, created by Chuck Lorre, stars Michael Douglas and Alan Arkin as the once-famous actor Sandy Kominsky and his longtime agent, Norman Newlander, two friends tackling life’s curveballs as they navigate their later years in Los Angeles, a city that values youth and beauty.
Despite a mixed reception, the show won two Golden Globes with its first run, for Best Comedy and Best Actor (Douglas). It was promptly renewed for a second season, which saw the friends continue their journey, as Sandy met and bonded with his daughter’s new, older boyfriend (guest star Paul Reiser). Meanwhile, Norman reconnected with an old flame from his youth (guest star Jane Seymour).
Now, Netflix has officially renewed the show for a third run that will also be the show’s last.
Lorre said in a statement: “The Kominsky Method has been a true passion project for me and it’s been an incredible experience to see the warm response from both audiences and critics. I’m excited to wrap up the story with this final chapter.”
Production will start at an unknown date, as the TV industry slowly begins to navigate how to resume production amid the coronavirus pandemic.
