“Shrinking” has been renewed for Season 2 on Apple TV+.
Co-created by Jason Segel, Bill Lawrence and Brett Goldstein, the series stars Segel and Harrison Ford in one of his earliest television roles.
“Shrinking” follows grieving therapist Jimmy (Segel) who begins to break the rules and tell his clients exactly what he’s thinking. Unaware of his training and ethics, he finds himself making huge, tumultuous changes in people’s lives, including his own, according to Apple’s description.
In addition to Segel and Ford (as Paul), “Shrinking” stars Jessica Williams (Gaby), Christa Miller (Liz), Lukita Maxwell (Alice), Michael Urie (Brian), and Luke Tennie (Sean).
Episode 8 of the first season of “Shrinking” begins Friday. Titled “Boop”, the episode sees Paul and Brian come to Jimmy’s aid when Alice acts up. Liz and Sean support Gaby by accompanying her to an event.
“We’ve loved the engaging, touching and hilarious world of ‘Shrinking’ from the start, and it’s been wonderful to see audiences around the world continue to connect with these big-hearted characters,” Matt Cherniss, Head of Programming for Apple TV+, said in a statement. “We can’t wait for viewers to see what the cast and creative team have for Season 2.”
The series is produced by Lawrence, Segel, Goldstein, Neil Goldman, James Ponsoldt, Randall Winston, Jeff Ingold and Liza Katzer. Lawrence, Segel and Goldstein wrote the first episode, directed by Ponsoldt.
“Shrinking” is produced by Warner Bros. Television, where Lawrence and Goldstein are both under global contracts, and Lawrence’s Doozer Productions.
