Living with yourself season 2
With a duration of just 3h30, thousands of subscribers have already finished the eight episodes of “Living With Yourself” and are wondering about the continuation of the series.
Will ‘Living with yourself’ season 2 have?
Let’s start with the facts: at the moment, Netflix has not yet announced the renewal for the second season of “How to Live With Yourself”, but this is not necessarily a negative sign: the series has not been canceled, and as it has not been announced or advertised in promotional materials as a miniseries, it is conceivable that the story of Miles and his clone could continue.
Initially commissioned for IFC’s cable network, word arrived in August 2018 that Living With Yourself would be landing on Netflix as an original production.
“How to Live With Yourself” was billed as an “existential comedy” and is the most recent comedy of its kind produced by Netflix to hit its platform. The four Netflix comedies that debuted in 2019 (Russian Doll, After Life, Dead To Me, and The Politician) won over audiences and were renewed for a second season.
Given the success of the four titles mentioned above and the presence of a star like Paul Rudd in the series, it is quite likely that Netflix will not stop at the first and order a second season of Living With Yourself, but the last word depends on the ones. subscribers and the infamous Netflix algorithm.
So deciding the fate of Living With Yourself 2 will depend on the audience’s response. The Netflix algorithm elaborates visualization data indicative of the satisfaction of each title by the subscribers, with special attention to the performance in its first weekend of presence in the catalog. Subscriber accounts who watch at least 70% of an episode of a series are considered a “visualization”, as explained by a company spokesperson.
The decision about the future of “How to live with yourself” could come between the end of November and the beginning of December. Netflix typically takes four to six weeks to make a decision on its original titles.
When is “Living With Yourself Season 2 premieres?
In case Living With Yourself 2 is renewed, we could expect an annual format, so the second season will be premiering on Netflix in October 2020.
