Living with Yourself, an eight-episode Netflix comedy, features twice as much Paul Rudd as any other show. Critics and viewers alike praised Rudd’s dual performances as down-on-his-luck Miles and his high-on-life clone, New Miles.
Thanks to a strange spa treatment, Miles gets cloned in the midst of his existential crisis, forcing him to confront what it means to, well, live with oneself. His clone possesses Miles’ memories and body, but he’s a happier, more optimistic version of himself who just seems to be better at living.
With the support of their wife Kate, the sitcom turns the uncomfortable possibility of confessing your flaws into an emotionally driven humor (Aisling Bea).
The first season of 2019 finished with Kate announcing her pregnancy and the paternity of Miles still a mystery. They have a group hug, expressing their joy at the excellent news while also realizing that they are in an unusual situation. “Where do we go from here?” they and the audience wonder. The following is a list of everything we know about Season 2.
When can we expect the second season of Living with Yourself?
Netflix has yet to decide if Living with Yourself will be renewed for a second season. “The project was always supposed to be a gratifying single season,” creator Timothy Greenberg told The Hollywood Reporter.
“Paul had never before worked on television. He was worried about being a part of an ongoing project and playing a character for the rest of his life.” Greenberg clarified that this does not rule out the possibility of a second season.
Given that the show features an A-list star twice, it’s possible that the show’s renewal is dependant on Rudd’s willingness to return for a second season.
It takes a lot of effort to portray many characters on the same TV show, and he could be busy in the near future with the third Ant-Man feature and another TV show, The Shrink Next Door.
“Like everyone else, I only have so much bandwidth!” A second season, according to Rudd, is in the works. He didn’t deny it, but he didn’t confirm it either.
What is the plot of Living with Yourself’s second season?
If Netflix decides to keep Living with Yourself, fans may rest confident that Timothy Greenberg has plenty of ideas. He told THR that Season 1 almost ended with a horrific cliffhanger involving someone other than the main characters, but it was scrapped in favor of a satisfying finish centered on the show’s core.
“Part of me still longs for the closing scene to take a dark turn and show us something horrific that happened,” he said. If we have a second season, I could always put that at the start. I have at least six ideas about how to begin a new season.”
A second season would not only continue to investigate the darker aspects of cloning, but it would also reveal more about the central theme. “In terms of ‘What does it mean to live with oneself?’ We’ve only begun to scrape the surface.” Greenberg added something. He pointed out that the two Miles’ immediate problem has been solved, thus the story must continue.
Living with Yourself is already a delectable treat centered on a quirky but genuine midlife crisis, and thanks to one of Paul Rudd’s best on-screen performances, a second season may be even better. We’ll have to wait and see what happens to the series for the time being.
Will the second season of Living With Yourself be as captivating as the first?
Kate, Miles, and the clone exchanged an embrace towards the end of the first season. Is this a sign that they’re getting ready to start a family? Isn’t it a touch unsettling, though?
Season 2 would be fantastic if we could receive all of the answers. It would be amazing to see Miles’ clone and replica work together to raise the child in season 2 if the program is renewed.
