Netflix has renewed the critically-acclaimed sketch comedy series I Think You Should Leave with Tim Robinson for a second season. There's no official release date set for season 2, but it'll premiere sometime in 2020. The series showed up without much fanfare on the streaming platform earlier this year and quickly became a viewer and critic favorite with its short sketches revolving around day-to-day life in an over the top and absurd way. I Think You Should Leave is Co-created by Robinson and Saturday Night Live producer Zach Kanin, who has also worked on Documentary Now!
I Think You Should Leave pokes fun at life's most bizarre and mundane situations. The first season saw Tim Robinson and a few of his famous friends navigate awkward workplace drama, host an intervention in a Garfield themed house, talk their way out of a babysitter's fake hit, crash a hotdog-shaped car into a clothing store, and a lot more. The Netflix series is produced by The Lonely Island and Irony Point. Robinson and Zach Kanin had this to say about season 2 in a new statement.
"We are very excited to be working with The Lonely Island, Irony Point, and Netflix to make another season of I Think You Should Leave. We are so thankful we get to do it again!"
I Think You Should Leave season one is made up of six short episodes and it is believed that season 2 will follow the same format at this time. Guest stars from the first season include Sam Richardson, Vanessa Bayer, Cecily Strong, Will Forte, Steven Yeun, Andy Samberg, Fred Willard, and Tim Heidecker. The sketches are often short and to the point, with a few going on a bit longer, but never to where it seems like it is too much.
I Think You Should Leave currently has a 90% Fresh Rating on Rotten Tomatoes and is gaining more viewership, thanks to the good press it has received since debuting at the end of April. Critics have called the show "demented," "outlandish," and "comedic perfection." All of the fat is trimmed and the show moves quick with extra gags found in repeat viewings. Unlike a sketch show like Saturday Night Live where the material has to be written in a week, I Think You Should Leave has time to craft their sketches over time.
Will I Think You Should Leave season 2 be able to live up to the first season? It's far too early to tell, but there will surely be a much larger audience waiting to see it this time around, which may add to the pressure. Since the series is so short, Tim Robinson and crew may already have season 2 in the can and ready to roll. We'll just have to wait and see. Netflix streaming service was the first to make the I Think You Should Leave season 2 news.
