Netflix's I Think You Should Leave is an unhinged masterpiece. Deeply weird, frequently upsetting and hysterically funny no matter how many times I've watched it (which is many, many times), Tim Robinson and Zach Kanin's sketch comedy series is one of my favorite pieces of 2019 entertainment. I'll recommend it to anyone who'll listen, I'll happily rewatch it at the drop of a hat, and I'm to a point with it where I can quote entire sketches verbatim. It's excellent.
And so, it is with great pleasure and much excitement that I bring to you the following news: Netflix has greenlit a second season of I Think You Should Leave, and it'll hit the streaming service sometime next year.
As of this writing we have no idea who might appear in this new batch of episodes (season one was chock full of top-shelf comedy cameos) or how many episodes we might be getting, but if I were a betting man I'd guess that it'll be something along the lines of the order Netflix placed last time: half a dozen episodes, each one roughly twenty minutes in length. That's pure speculation, of course, but it seems the most likely outcome here.
Here's a quote from Robinson and Kanin:
“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 really cannot overstate how much I, and various other mebmers of the BMD team, love I Think You Should Leave. We celebrated when this press release hit our inbox, and the good mood it's put us in will likely last for another five or six hours (or until something horrible happens out in the real world, whichever comes first). Please feel free to celebrate along with us in the comments below, and don't be shy about expressing your excitement via the use of I Think You Should Leave gifs.
