I’m Not Okay With This Season 2 Release Date: Cast | Everything To Know Now!

The season finale of I Is Not Okay With This concluded with a massive cliffhanger and many unsolved concerns.

So, let's go right to the unpleasant news. The event has been canceled. Netflix had planned to renew our new favorite program for a second season, but world events intervened.

This does not sit well with us. We were confident that Jonathan Entwistle and Shawn Levy's adaptation would be revived.

I Am Not Okay With This's premise felt tailor-made for Netflix, pulling inspiration from various shows on the service, including Stranger Things, The End of the F***ing World, and others.

However, there were warning signals that danger was on the way. Levy told EW, “We have not been formally picked up for future seasons.”

“We were never guaranteed further seasons, but Jonathan and I, as well as everyone else who worked on the program, decided to take a chance on ourselves, believing that this could be a truly unique and impactful piece of storytelling on one of the world's most popular platforms.

“We knew there would be a mysterious undercurrent running throughout the season, one that would begin subtly and gradually come to the surface, finally puncturing it in the finale with the appearance of the stranger, who we still don't know who he is.

“We always knew we wanted to finish there; we worked long and hard to find the appropriate final line of conversation for that unusual character, and we were counting on ourselves to have created a very wonderful show, hoping that people would respond to the series so we could do more.”

Unfortunately, that opportunity has been denied. “Uncertainty around production dates and balancing the availabilities of a large cast like The Society.

Combined with unexpected budget increases due to COVID, led to the decisions on The Society and I Am Not Okay With This, which had both been well received by critics and fans and had strong support at Netflix,” according to Deadline.

In response to the cancellation, Netflix issued the following statement: “We've taken the tough choice not to continue with The Society, and I Am Not Okay With This's second seasons.

“We're disappointed to have to make these decisions as a result of COVID's circumstances, and we're grateful to these creators, including Jonathan Entwistle, Christy Hall, Shawn Levy, Dan Levine, Dan Cohen, and Josh Barry at 21 Laps Entertainment for I Am Not Okay With This; Chris Keyser, Marc Webb, and Pavlina Hatoupis for The Society; and all the writers, casts, and crews who worked tirelessly to make these shows.

There is, however, a reason to be optimistic! According to Deadline, the program received excellent reviews, a fan base, and Netflix friends in high places.

It may have been canceled in its current form, but it's the type of show that Netflix has a history of rescuing. So, either another streaming service will step in, or Netflix will reverse its decision practically as soon as the vaccine is distributed.

Because this is a program that needs a second season – or, at the very least, a film to wrap up all loose ends. Why?

Join us here at Digital Spy as we delve further into Sydney's life and expose why we need to see her future, in whatever shape it takes, beyond prom.

Season 2 of I Am Not Okay With This Will Be Released on the Following Dates: When Will It Be Broadcast?

Because You Know What has been so bad for the TV business, it's difficult to say when productions will resume, let alone when a canceled program is resurrected.

I Am Not Okay With This's creators must account for CGI, which lengthens the process and may turn off streamers/networks that would consider it for a new home.

So, your estimate is as good as ours, but first and foremost, we need that crucial rescue.

Who's in the Cast of I'm Not Okay With This Season 2?

The majority of the cast, including the following, is likely to return for a second season:

  • Sophia Lillis as Sydney
  • Wyatt Oleff as Stanley Barber
  • Sofia Bryant as Dina
  • Kathleen Rose Perkins as Maggie

Lillis explained the interaction between the two characters (Sydney and Stan) to Screenrant: “Sydney… lives a secluded existence. She only has one buddy, and she considers him to be her lone confidante and her only source of support.

“When Stan appears, and she discovers she has abilities, he introduces her to a new world and a new way of acting and being… how her actions have repercussions and how she performs in public.

Because she isn't a jerk… and he transforms her into a completely different person, she finds herself in a new world with a new set of relationships outside of her little circle of acquaintances. There was just one buddy.”

Richard Ellis is one of the cast members who are unlikely to return. Brad tried to go ahead by spilling all of Sydney's secrets at prom at the end of season one, but he lost his head after Syd blew it up in Scanners-style.

However, please don't rule out the potential of Brad reappearing in flashbacks with his head securely reattached to his body.

Of course, with such a youthful ensemble, the sooner we hear positive news, the better; if it takes years to find a new home, we may have to recast specific roles if the performers grow out of them. This would undoubtedly hurt the fandom.

Sydney will need to find a method to control her emotions in season two if she wants to avoid any more casualties.

Sophia Lillis told Junkee, “Her powers are based on her emotions.” “And she already has difficulties with her anger, where even though she tries to manage these outbursts of rage, it's kind of the way she copes and deals with [her life].”

This has a lot of similarities to Stephen King's Carrie (particularly in conclusion), which also significantly influenced Stranger Things. Can we find season two clues by looking at how that episode progressed?

“You know what's strange, but it's the truth? We never spend time announcing the homages we aim to create, much like the Duffers on Stranger Things, “According to Levy (via EW).

“There are some movies or allusions that come up as we build the screenplay, but we as filmmakers have never said, “Now we're going to shoot this shot like that one time in that movie,” in all my years on Stranger Things and not once during I Am Not Okay With This.

I know it's hard to believe, but these impacts are quite strong, but they're more hidden and unconscious than openly acknowledged.”

Entwistle echoes this sentiment, saying, “Surprisingly, it was entirely by chance. We first discussed the image when discussing what we could do with Syd if she didn't blow up her head, as she does in the comic.

“What does that conclusion's iconography look like? We came up with this, and we liked the look, but as we started the process, it instantly dawned on me that although it's a nice image, it's extremely similar to Carrie.”

There's also the enigmatic person that first appeared at the end of season one. What's the big deal about that?

While it's fair to believe he's her “dead” father, it doesn't explain where he's been or why he's taken such a long time to return.

Unfortunately, the source material is also of no assistance in this regard. Not only is the original graphic novel significantly darker, but it was also written as a single tale with a clear finale by author Charles Forsman. Given how far the program has already departed from this, future seasons will see the writers continuing to explore brave new ground.

Although the program only lasted seven episodes, it wasn't intended to be a one-off mini-series, so there's more to discover here.

“I want to make sure that Sydney is effectively a Chosen One, the only one right now,” director and executive producer Jonathan Entwistle said. “She completely despises it, and she has to come to grips with what it means to do that” (via Collider).

“There is a much larger under-the-surface conspiracy, if you will, that goes back much, much further to do with the powers, that will then come to light for the subsequent seasons where she and her powers, as the most powerful, will be used for someone else's gain and not, depending on where we go,” says the narrator.

It seems like a fun new take on Buffy Summers/Eleven from Stranger Things is in the works…

During a recent interview with Decider, Entwhistle revealed the name of the smokey man:

“Who has arrived in town, are the questions I want everyone to ask. Is it going to be Syd's tutor, ‘Professor X,' or the Sith Lord, who will lead her to the Dark Side?”

“I believe that when you have the kind of abilities that she has, you can become an asset in a larger world that's been building outside of the small village where we started the narrative,” he added. “So I'd like it to be an indication right away that there's a broader universe out there than just one kid with weird powers,” she says.

During the conversation, Entwistle also hinted that this new figure and Stanley would have some squabbles:

“Stan has no special abilities, so if someone with cool abilities intervenes and begins saying stuff to Sydney, it will damage his ego a little. And I believe he is a character that enjoys being wanted. Therefore I believe it is intriguing for him to cope with the world.”

Kathleen Rose Perkins, who plays Sydney's mother Maggie, o,n the program, knows exactly what she wants to see if the show is renewed for a second season.

“I'm excited to see what develops with Dina and Sydney's relationship,” she remarked (via Metro). “It's a pretty lovely connection, in my opinion. I'm curious how Brad's head blowing up will affect their relationship… Stanley, a wonderful youngster, should also find his match. You want him to fall in love.”

Kathleen is also eager for Sydney and Maggie to, you know, get along. “Hopefully, if there are any more, we can see them as partners rather than adversaries in the future,” she added. “For the most part, this series has been about squabbling.”

Whatever happens, the first season of I Is Not Okay With This ended with many unanswered questions. Sydney's journal was picked up by who? Is there anyone who thinks Sydney killed Brad? What will be the outcome of Sydney and Dina's relationship? Will there be a new hedgehog on the scene?

All of these questions, as well as others, will undoubtedly need to be addressed.

“I'm thrilled for people to see what it's going to be like for Sydney to go back into high school after what occurred,” Entwistle remarked at the time (via EW).

“What is it, exactly? Nobody will accuse her directly, but she was at the center of everything. I'm looking forward to seeing what strange high school ideas they come up with to explain what happened at that homecoming. I'm also curious about the world's superpowers and what they mean for Sydney, both positively and negatively.”

In season two, Levy says he wants to expand the scope of the modest series. “In Season 1, we purposefully kept the content subtle, and we intend to broaden that canvas in Season 2.

“I love to explore different relationships between different characters because we may surprise ourselves by mixing and matching different dynamics and different individuals in our cast,” as we learned with Stranger Things.

When Will We See a Netflix Commercial for the Second Season of I Am Not Okay With This?

Sydney can't see a future for herself beyond high school, and we can't see a lot for her beyond season one, either. That's because there won't be any fresh footage to see until the program is picked up by another network and production begins.

Yes, it's time to rewatch season one to boost those streaming numbers — every binge helps.

This does not sit well with me. This is currently accessible on Netflix.
