Netflix's 'Feel Good' Renewed for Second and Final Season
Netflix has renewed its critically acclaimed dramedy Feel Good for a second season, which will also be the last one for the series.
The streamer is not, however, ready to end its relationship with Feel Good's star and co-creator, Mae Martin. Netflix is developing another project with Martin and Feel Good producer Objective Fiction, which it won in a competitive environment.
"I'm beyond excited to be able to return to the world of Feel Good, and to see Mae and George's love story through to the dramatic conclusion we had always planned," said Martin. "I'm really deeply attached to this story and I'm so grateful to be getting back to work with the incredible team at Objective Fiction and our hilarious cast. Having spent most of 2020 speaking only to my kettle and my television as I watched the world burn on the internet, I'm euphoric to be around other human beings again. Seeing Joe Hampson’s and my dumb jokes come to life is heaven. Thank you, Netflix!"
Feel Good premiered in March to universally strong reviews; The Hollywood Reporter's Daniel Fienberg called the series "tart" and "clear-minded" about the central relationship between Martin's Mae and George (Charlotte Ritchie), with whom she jumps into a relationship.
The second season will deal with Mae struggling to come to terms with her past while George tries to reinvent her present. Lisa Kudrow, Philip Burgers and Adrian Lukis will reprise their roles and Jordan Stephens, John Ross Bowie, Eve and Eleanor Matsuura will join the cast.
Martin and Joe Hampson co-created Feel Good and wrote all six episodes of the first season. They produce the series with Charlotte Lewis, Kelly McGolpin and Ben Farrell. Season one was a co-production with the U.K.'s Channel 4, but the final run will be exclusive to Netflix. It's set to air sometime next year.
