“Love” Season 2 is reportedly in the production stage. Season 1 of the show only debuted last February 19 on Netflix.
iDigitalTimes noted that “Love” did not rack up much discussion on the web prior to showing. However, audiences favorably received the comedy series from Judd Apatow, the website reported.
Based on its ratings on Rotten Tomatoes, it earned an audience score of 92 percent while the Tomatometer rated it at 88 percent.
Rotten Tomatoes also revealed the Critic Consensus for “Love” Season 1.
“Judd Apatow’s Love is an honest look at building a relationship, helped along by its two appealing leads.”
Leading the cast are Paul Rust and Gillian Jacobs. The two play Gus and Mickey, respectively.
Screenrant offered insight into the series’ storyline. The website revealed it is not driven by “punchy dialogue and wacky sight gags”. Instead, it is “more realistic”. The characters show a “longing for genuine connection”.
Hence, its overall tone “leaves room for honest storytelling, real heart and character growth”, Screenrant added.
Early on, Screenrant ranked “Love” as one of the best upcoming original series from Netflix.
Netflix already ordered two full seasons of the original Apatow show in 2014, Variety revealed earlier.
Season 1 includes ten episodes. Season 2 includes 12 episodes and is set for release in 2017.
The website noted that Netflix wanted an original property from Apatow.
Variety quoted Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos, “Judd Apatow has a unique comedic voice that manages to be delightful, insightful, and shockingly frank — often at the same time.”
Sarandos added, “Together with Paul and Lesley, he’s bringing a whole new level of agony and ecstasy to this modern day comedy of manners.”
Apatow responded with this statement, “Netflix has been supportive in ways I couldn’t create in my wildest fever dreams.”
Apatow is also the producer of “Pee-wee’s Big Holiday” that streams March 18 on Netflix. Incidentally, Paul Rust co-wrote the script for the movie with Paul Reubens.
