‘Platonic’- is a friendly attachment free from all forms of favours and remunerations. They say, if one has friends they have the world. Good friends not just help you navigate through life they teach you the true meaning of living life to the fullest. But friends of all kinds give you a learning, few are with you for a purpose but the best ones are the selfless platonic ones. They would stand for you always and shake the world for you.
Growing old with such friends is a dream for many. Comedy shows are often a satire on hard hitting truths of the society. Platonic was a comedy show that came out in 2023 and was loved by audiences for a fresh take on this old feeling of friendship. With season one’s recent premiere, fans are wondering if the show is renewed for a Season 2. Here is all we know so far.
Is Platonic Season 2 renewed?
No. As of now the show is not officially renewed, but makers and the star cast have hinted subtly at a season two without giving away a lot of details. In an interview with TheWrap before the SAG-AFTRA strikes, Macfarlane passed a comment, he said about a renewal ”There have definitely been discussions.I don’t know all the details, but we’re hoping we can make it work.”
He also spoke about how “I’d like to see Charlie spend a little bit more time with Will to try to understand him a little bit better.” Macfarlane also spoke about strengthening and adding layers to the friendship of Sylvia and Katie.
With no hopes of a renewal anytime soon due to the strike, the show is expected to be delayed as the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes have doomed many shows, this being one of them. Apple TV+ has already been cautious with show renewals and maybe for these reasons, this one has been on hold. Despite good viewer response, till negotiations are made, things will remain uncertain.
