Starring Canadian actor Keir Gilchrist as an autistic teen, Netflix’s new series “Atypical” will explore the dating life of Sam Gardener.
The streaming giant dropped a new clip on Monday which teased a scene where Sam and his mother (played by Jennifer Jason Leigh) discuss his decision to jump into a quest for love.
Netflix released a statement about the upcoming show:
“‘Atypical’ is a coming of age story that follows Sam (played by Keir Gilchrist), an 18-year-old on the autistic spectrum as he searches for love and independence. While Sam is on his funny yet emotional journey of self-discovery, the rest of his family must grapple with change in their own lives as they all struggle with the central theme: what does it really mean to be normal.”
“Atypical” starts streaming worldwide Aug. 11.
