Netflix has ordered a second season of the autism comedy "Atypical". The Jennifer Jason Leigh starrer will expand from eight to 10 episodes in its sophomore season, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Written, created and executive produced by Robia Rashid, "Atypical" is a coming-of-age story from the point of view of Sam (Keir Gilchrist), an 18-year-old on the autistic spectrum searching for love and independence. Jason Leigh and Michael Rapaport play Gilchrist's parents, while Brigette Lundy-Paine and Amy Okuda round out the cast. The show debuted on August 11 to positive reviews.
