The Shrink Next Door is an American psychological black comedy-drama mini-series created by Georgia Pritchett based on the podcast of the exact title by Joe Nocera.
Apple TV has not yet declared openly whether The Shrink Next Door will be back for a second season, but we would be very shocked if the drama were to come back considering it has always been impressive as a miniseries.
Based on Joe Nocera’s Bloomberg podcast of the same name, The Shrink Next Door tells the actual story of Isaac Herschkopf, a New York psychiatrist who rooted himself into the life of his patient Martin Markowitz oover30 years.
Since the series contains the same period of the podcast, up to Markowitz making an objection against Herschkopf to the New York Department of Health in 2012, there wouldn’t be anywhere for a second season to go, especially since Markowitz and Herschkopf no longer spewed likely license has been taken away from him and Markowitz has shut his family business.
If The Shrink Next Door was renewed for a second season, we’d likely have to wait a while for episodes to arrive on Apple TV. Not a huge amount has happened in real-life since the events of the miniseries.
However, when the show does get its hands on some material, we would predict that production would take roughly half a year, based on the west season. Season one began filming in November 2020 in Los Angeles and finished in March 2021, with the show finally premiering in November.
The final episode of the drama miniseries The Shrink Next Door arrived on Apple TV today, with the real-life story of Marty Markowitz (Will Ferrell) and his boundary-violating psychiatrist Isaac Herschkopf (Paul Rudd) reaching a satisfying conclusion.
If Apple TV will light the season shortly, we wouldn’t expect it to come until at least mid-2023.
