When is The Kominsky Method Season 3 update?
The Kominsky Method Season 3 is expected to release on Netflix in October 2020. We will keep you posted with the latest developments.
What is The Kominsky Method Season 3 Plot?
The official synopsis of the series as disclosed by Netflix says about the show was under-
“Acting Coach Sandy Kominsky and best friend Norman Newlander keep each other laughing as they navigate the ups and downs of getting older.”
We are introduced to the aging Norman and Sandy as they try to pass through their last stage of mortal life. The beauty of the series lies in its inherent positivity amidst all odds. It drops as heavy an event like the death of Norman’s wife at 50years for cancer in Episode 1 itself but still remains humorous throughout its length. Viewers feel for Norman though we are not too much involved with the characters.
The show is a testament to the artistic skills of the characters and the stars that perform for them. The characters of the series are excellent on an individual scale but also deliver credible rounded performances together. They help us remain entertained throughout with well-earned laughs and emotional highs and lows.
In Season 1, we observe that Norman does not seem to do too well in his life as he loses his wife in cancer and enters his old age. He fears that he will lose his mind with old age but remains to be seen whether the ‘loss of mind’ is treated as a literal result of his old age or just like any odd attempt by the elders to remain relevant in the fast-paced society.
The series maintains a startling balance between grief and goofiness. It puts serious themes like aging, masculinity, and friendship on display with both scatology and sentiment. It has set a high bar of expectations for both viewers and critics.
The show puts a special spotlight for its protagonists, giving them extra screen time and added weightage. It remains to be seen whether the upcoming Season 3 outsmarts our expectations or not!
