Shrinking Season 2: Release Date, Returning Cast, and More. 

Apple Tv’s cathartic comedy “Shrinking” has been a weekly streaming treat since it premiered in January. Shrinking has been a hit with critics and viewers alike, as it currently holds an 81% rating with critics on Rotten Tomatoes. 

But has it done well enough to earn it a second season? The answer is a resounding yes!

Apple TV+ has renewed the critically acclaimed series “Shrinking” before its Season 1 finale—so good news for all the fans. Jason Segel’s psychological vigilante will be returning for a second season!

Season 1 of Shrinking tells the story of Jimmy, a grieving therapist who forgoes all ethics and starts to tell his patients precisely what he thinks about their mental health issues. Jimmy’s dangerous approach to therapy is motivated by his difficulty dealing with his loss. 

The therapist nevertheless ends up causing tumultuous changes to people’s lives, sometimes fixing traumas that regular therapy couldn’t. 

Commenting on the renewal, Matt Cherniss, head of programming for Apple TV+, said: “We have loved the engaging, touching, and hilarious world of ‘Shrinking’ since the beginning, and it has been wonderful to watch as audiences around the world continue to connect with these big-hearted characters. We can’t wait for viewers to experience what the cast and creative team have for season two.”

1. When is “Shrinking” Season 2 coming out?

While there’s no official date in the books, Season 1 premiered on January 27, 2023, and Apple TV+ shows tend to have cyclical dates. We can expect the next installment to hit the streaming service around the same time next year.

4.How do I watch or stream Shrinking? 

Each episode of Shrinking premiered on Apple TV+ on Thursday nights at midnight. All of Season 1 is available to stream with an Apple TV+ subscription. Season 2 is expected to premiere on Apple TV too.

Shrinking has been delivering a heartfelt and hilarious story about how we all are broken human beings in dire need of help without trying to be a realistic reflection of the therapeutic process. It’s comforting to know that we are not alone with our issues, which helps to explain the series’ tremendous success. 

Not surprisingly, Apple TV+ decided to give Shrinking an early renewal, ensuring Jimmy, his colleagues, and his patients would keep making us laugh and cry for at least one more season.
