Plot of Cancelled Atypical

However, things become more challenging as Sam wants to start dating.

Why we liked the series (Atypical Cancelled) so much
This is not just a journey of a differently-abled child but rather a coming of age story of a young boy presented through a light-hearted approach. Sam becomes a representative for people who actually have this condition and are probably exhausted from seeing the typical portrayal of autistic people. This one here is a bold statement that says we are who we are and there is no reason strong enough so that you would change yourself. Considering the constant pressure to fit in, it seems like fresh air to see Sam being happily awkward with his friends.

A refreshing sibling relationship
Sam and Cassey have a beautiful bonding that is so rarely seen on TV. She has his back, always taking care of and protecting him. Unlike pretty much every single American drama, the brother-sister bond is atypical. Casey loves her brother and does not mind showing it. Sam too loves her but he cannot express it properly. His little acts are a testament to his love and care for this sister.

The (Cancelled) Atypical Available on
The show can be watched on Netflix.
Atypical indeed takes atypical approach to typical issues. This is the reason we love it. It tries to keep things simple and refreshing and funny at the same time. The emotions are strongly present in the show but they never feel overbearing. There is a kind of restraint to it. And it just works.
