Originally a short form series, the final season of Special expands to a full half-hour comedy and dives deeper into fan-favorite characters.
Ryan O’Connell is the series creator, executive producer, writer and series regular. Jim Parsons is one of the executive producers for That’s Wonderful Productions. Special is produced by Warner Bros. Television, That’s Wonderful Productions, Campfire and Stage 13. Ryan O’Connell, Jessica Hecht, Marla Mindelle, and Punam Patel return as series regulars.
“After two seasons, Special is sadly coming to an end,” says O’Connell. “Thank you to the fans and Netflix for allowing me to make exactly the show I wanted to make and for giving me 30-minute episodes to finish the story. Creating this show has been the highlight of my g-damn life.”
“This season is about our primary characters—Ryan, Karen and Kim—coming into their power and realizing they all deserve big gorgeous lives—whether society agrees or not, bitch!”
