‘Kominsky Method’ renewed for season 2 at netflix

Netflix has picked up “The Kominsky Method” for a second season.

The comedy stars starring Michael Douglas and Alan Arkin recently won two Golden Globe Awards, one for best comedy series and the other for Douglas in the best actor in a comedy series category. Arkin was also nominated in the supporting actor category.

Season 2 will consist of eight half-hour episodes and is scheduled to begin production later this month in Los Angeles. Douglas and Arkin will return as series regulars along with Sarah Baker and Nancy Travis.

The show follows actor and acting coach Sandy Kominsky (Douglas) and his agent Norman Newlander (Arkin), two friends trying to navigate their later years in Los Angeles, a city that values youth and beauty.

Chuck Lorre created the series and serves as executive producer along with Al Higgins and Douglas. Chuck Lorre Productions produces in association with Warner Bros. Television.

“I wanted to write about getting older and all that that entails,” Lorre told Variety in an interview published in December. “I wanted to write about people losing loved ones and dealing with health issues and grown children. I found this wonderful avenue through Netflix where there were no ratings restrictions and they were totally supportive. I could write without looking over my shoulder.”
