The series is truly one of the underrated gems in the Netflix Original library
It’s been more than one year since Living With Yourself, starring Paul Rudd and Paul Rudd in the lead debuted in Netflix. The Original series has Rudd playing the role of Miles, who is looking to get his life in order by going on an experimental treatment package that ends up with him getting a clone of himself.
The series went on to get a Golden Globe nomination and was well received by both fans and critics. From the way things were, the show had plenty of scope to return for a second season, and even the creator Timothy Greenberg told Variety that there were further plans for the series.
The show’s return
Officially speaking, Netflix didn’t give it a thumbs up or thumbs down on making more seasons. It’s status was most recently discussed by Matt Mitovich and Ryan Schwartz for TVLine who were discussing a number of shows that had gone MIA after their debut. They said that sources confirmed that Paul Rudd had only signed to do a one-season deal, and hence a second season is not anticipated.
A logical explanation would be that the show has gone on a permanent hiatus and can return in the future. This has happened with other high-profile Netflix Originals like Mastet of None (which is apparently returning after being on hiatus) and David Fincher’s Mindhunter.
Paul Rudd has become a much bigger star after his association with the Marvel Cinematic Universe and his filming schedule looks jam packed. He has projects like the third Ant-Man movie as well as Apple TV+’s The Shrink Next Door and Ghostbusters: Afterlife.
In conclusion, it looks like the show’s future depends on Paul Rudd wanting to do more seasons. Till then, we will wait and see.
