The Grand Door Prize is the latest streaming series to refresh soon.
Apple has handed out a second season pick to the comedy series starring Chris O’Dowd. The series, based on the book of the same name, launched the first three episodes on the streaming platform on March 29. The 10-episode series debuts every Wednesday before the rest of the series.
“We are so grateful to audiences around the world for already embracing the weird little hopes and dreams of our Deerfield residents, and we couldn’t be more excited about where we want to take them in season two,” said creator David West Read . “Thanks to our partners at Apple TV+ and Skydance, we have an incredible opportunity to unlock the magic and mysteries of The Grand Door Prize with this truly remarkable ensemble cast.”
O’Dowd leads a cast that also includes Gabrielle Dennis, Ally Maki, Josh Segarra, Damon Gupton, Crystal Fox, Djouliet Amara, and Sammy Fourlas.
The comedy is currently certified fresh on Rotten Tomatoes, with a 93 percent critic rating (with 30 reviews) and a 92 percent audience rating (with fewer than 50 reviews). The Hollywood Reporter‘s chief television critic Daniel Fienberg called the series a “blend of low-key pleasures and misplaced aspirations”.
Produced by Skydance Television and CJ ENM/Studio Dragon, Read (Schitt’s Creek) serves as showrunner and executive producer along with David Ellison and Dana Goldberg, Miky Lee, Young Kyu Kim, Hyun Park, Bill Bost and Sarah Walker.
The fast extension for The Grand Door Prize comes shortly after Netflix refresh The Night Agent six days after its debut.
