The Kominsky Method final season first-look photos & release date revealed!
Netflix has finally announced the release date for the upcoming third and final season of Chuck Lorre’s acclaimed comedy-drama series The Kominsky Method. The series is scheduled to make its return on Friday, May 28 which will not feature Alan Arkin’s Norman Newlander after the Oscar winner had decided to exit the series last year. The date announcement also came with the released of the first-look photos which you can check out below, featuring Michael Douglas, Sarah Baker, Kathleen Turner and Paul Reiser.
It’s still unclear why Arkin had left the series but sources say that the 86-year-old veteran actor was the one adamant to not continue beyond the second season. For his last portrayal of Norman Newlander, Arkin received an Emmy nomination and Golden Globe nomination for Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series.
In Season 3, Sandy Kominsky has to navigate what aging looks like without his longtime friend Norman Newlander by his side. Life only becomes more complicated with the arrival of Sandy’s ex-wife Roz Volander. The pair’s famously volatile relationship is further inflamed when she comes to LA to spend time with their daughter Mindy and her boyfriend Martin.
The Kominsky Method is a half-hour single-camera comedy about an actor and his agent as they continue their journey as two friends tackling life’s inevitable curveballs as they navigate their later years in Los Angeles, a city that, above all else, values youth.
Along with Michael Douglas, this season will feature special appearances from Kathleen Turner, as well as Nancy Travis, Sarah Baker and guest stars including Lisa Edelstein, Emily Osment, Graham Rogers, Ann-Margret, Jay Leno, Patti LaBelle, Ashleigh LaThorpe and more. Season 3 will also feature Jane Seymour (Wedding Crashers) and Paul Reiser (Stranger Things).
The first two seasons of The Kominsky Method are available to stream on Netflix now!
