In a world full of superhero films and TV shows, Extraordinary has been able to mark its own niche due to its hilarious take on the genre. The Hulu/Disney+ show follows the story of a woman who remains powerless in a world where everyone has a superpower.
The eight-episode first season of the series premiered on January 25 and has already left fans asking for more. Audiences are now wondering if and when the show will return for season 2. Read on to find out.
Will Extraordinary Return with Season 2?
Extraordinary fans will be excited to learn that the show has been renewed for a second season. The renewal was announced on January 23, even before the series premiered on Disney+ and Hulu. The second season is also expected to have eight episodes, keeping up with the first installment.
As for the potential release date, season 2 can be expected to be dropped by early 2024. The series was announced in late December 2021 and debuted in January 2023. Now that the second season is already in production, it should be launched by early next year.
What will Happen in Extraordinary Season 2?
In the final episode of the first season, Jizzlord and Jen fall in love, and the protagonist is finally ready to get a superpower. However, Jizzlord stumbles into his wife and child during a trip to the corner shop. He apparently had a family before losing his memory in the body of a cat.
Season 2 will now focus on how Jizzlord faces the situation and how Jen reacts to it. The season will reveal whether they continue to be together or go their separate ways. Talking about the storyline, actor Siobhan McSweeney had said, “It’s the story of Jen going through life feeling like a loser because she hasn’t got anything sorted out.”
“She blames it on not having a superpower, but of course everybody feels like that in their 20s. I certainly did. F*** it, I feel like that in my 40s. The superhero aspect is incidental. It’s a clever framework to explore the universal human story of feeling crap and useless. But it’s really funny; the funniest scripts I’ve read since Derry Girls,” she had added.
Who will Star in Extraordinary Season 2?
The show will most probably continue to star Máiréad Tyers as Jen, Sofia Oxenham as Carrie, Bilal Hasna as Kash, Luke Rollason as Jizzlord, Siobhán McSweeney as Mary, Safia Oakley-Green as Andy, Robbie Gee as Ian and Ned Porteous as Luke.
Talking about the cast, McSweeney had said, “There’s so much talent in this show. Even with Emma [Moran], this is her first script, which is just galling. And it’s absolutely extraordinary. That’s why the show should be called Extraordinary.”
Extraordinary is the third Disney+ original series to be created in the UK after Wedding Season and Save Our Squad with David Beckham. Emma Moran has created the show with Sally Woodward Gentle, Lee Morris, Charles Dawson and Johanna Devereaux serving as executive producers.
All episodes of Extraordinary season 1 are streaming on Hulu (US) and Disney+ (UK). Stay tuned for more news and updates.
