Special Season 2 will be gayer — with ‘a lot more gay sex’

Last year, Netflix debuted Special one of the gayest series in history — and it was groundbreaking. This Ryan O’Connell’s semi-autobiographical show tells the story of Ryan Hayes, a young gay man with cerebral palsy who decides to rewrite his identity as an accident victim and go after the life he really wants.

The said series nabbed short-form Emmy nominations — including Outstanding Short Form Comedy or Drama Series, Outstanding Actor in a Short Form Comedy or Drama Series, and Outstanding Actress in a Short Form Comedy or Drama Series.

Special Season 2 is coming!

The half-hour series was based on creator Ryan O’Connell’s 2015 memoir I’m Special: And Other Lies We Tell Ourselves. Viewers and critics praised the show for its smooth comedy and realistic showcase of intimate scenes. Last December 2019, Netflix announced  a second season.

In an interview with the writer and star of the series, Special’s upcoming eight episodes are already done, and in fact, O’Connell has been editing them already. They include the help of a writer’s room — O’Connell wrote the entire first season alone — and apparently  “a lot more gay sex” in store for fans.

O’Connell told Entertainment Weekly. :“I think anything that still has a stigma attached to it just naturally excites me.”

“I think there shouldn’t be any of that, especially with gay sex. I’ve had to suffer through so many straight sex scenes and now everyone else has to pay.”

Of course, O’Connell will of course return as his semi-autobiographical alter ego Ryan Hayes. Co-stars Jessica Hecht and Punam Patel also reprising their roles as Ryan’s mother Karen and friend Kim respectively.

However, due to the global health crisis caused by the coronavirus disease, only half of production is finished. There’s no timeline on when the second season will see the light of day.

Stay tuned for more updates on the release date of Season Two!
