Apple TV has renewed Shrinking, the comedy-drama starring Jason Segel and Harrison Ford, for a second season.
Jason Segel and Harrison Ford are back for another round of therapy as Apple TV+ has renewed Shrinking for a second season.
The comedy-drama has won raves throughout its first season, which is still in the midst of its ten-episode run. Co-created by Segel, Bill Lawrence and Brett Goldstein, Shrinking follows grieving therapist Jimmy (Segel), who starts to break the rules and tell his clients exactly what he thinks. Ignoring his training and ethics, he finds himself making huge, tumultuous changes to people’s lives, including his own. Harrison Ford stars alongside Jason Segel as Dr. Paul Rhoades, one of Jimmy’s colleagues at the Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Center, who has Parkinson’s disease. Christa Miller, Jessica Williams, Michael Urie, Luke Tennie, and Lukita Maxwell also star.

“We have loved the engaging, touching and hilarious world of Shrinking since the beginning, and it has been wonderful to watch as audiences around the world continue to connect with these big-hearted characters,” said Matt Cherniss, head of programming for Apple TV+. “We can’t wait for viewers to experience what the cast and creative team have for season two.“
Our own Alex Maidy was a big fan of the series. “Shrinking is a damn near-perfect show that I could not get enough of,” Maidy wrote in his review. “It is funny where it needs to be funny and dramatic in all the right places. The entire cast is exceptional, and I felt emotionally invested in every episode. Shrinking is precisely the type of show we need in this day and age, full of quotable lines, great supporting actors, and one of Harrison Ford’s best performances ever. It is very different from Ted Lasso but hits the same notes differently. I doubt anyone will finish this series and not have good things to say about it. If I have any problem with Shrinking, it is that there was not enough of it. I hope this show clicks and runs for multiple seasons so we can keep watching these characters grow and make us cry a little but laugh even more.” No doubt Maidy is thrilled that Shrinking has been renewed.
