We previously reported that Ryan O’Connell and Jim Parsons’ Netflix comedy series “Special” had been renewed for a second season but now we know the series will end there. Season 2 will arrive on May 20th and is made up of 8-thirty minute episodes. The show is based on O’Connell’s part-memoir, part-manifesto “I’m Special: And Other Lies We Tell Ourselves”. The series launched in April 2019 and tells the heartwarming story of a gay man with mild cerebral palsy who decides to rewrite his identity and finally go after the life he wants. “Special” stars Jessica Hecht, Punam Patel, Marla Mindelle, Augustus Prew, and Patrick Fabian.
Special, is a distinctive and uplifting new series about a gay man, Ryan with mild cerebral palsy who decides to rewrite his identity and finally go after the life he wants. After years of dead-end internships, working in his pajamas as a blogger and communicating mostly via text, Ryan eventually figured out how to take his life from bleak to chic and began limping towards adulthood. The offbeat comedy is based on series creator and star Ryan O’Connell’s memoir, “I’m Special: And Other Lies We Tell Ourselves.” O’Connell also serves as executive producer alongside Jim Parsons.
