Rupert Grint’s Sick Note recently landed on Netflix as an Original title recently but will there be another season? The show's future looks uncertain after poor reviews. Here’s what we know about season 3 so far and when it could join Netflix should it get renewed.
This British comedy was able to attract top talents such as Rupert Grint and Nick Frost from Harry Potter. Season 2 even saw Lindsay Lohan appear.
On November 23, both seasons of the series were available on Netflix US and in other countries.
Official Renewal Status - Not Yet Renew (Last Updated: 11/30/2018).
At the time of writing, season 3 hasn’t been confirmed as of yet. Netflix has only received the first two seasons, but Sick Note's second season aired in the UK in August. That’s because the series isn’t actually a full Netflix Original. Instead, Netflix holds the rights for international distribution. This means that the renewal of the show is entirely down to Sky One UK unless Netflix makes a decision and takes the series.
Between seasons 1 and 2, it took approximately 5 months for the announcement to be made about a second season.
Reviews for the show in the states haven’t been too kind either. Paste Magazine perhaps had one of the harshest evaluations of the show saying that it “is Dead on Arrival”. Reviews for the show haven’t been strong for the series but season 2 in generall did seem to raise the average up ever so slightly.
Matt Lipsey is the series' director and seems hopeful that another season will be ordered. He’s spent the last week retweeting and liking tweets from new fans of the show who have discovered it on Netflix.
Let’s assume for a second that the series does get renewed. It would air on Sky UK sometime in 2019, and then be available for streaming via Netflix within a few months.
Netflix may chose to get weekly episodes of the show too but for most British shows that come to Netflix elsewhere, that’s not the case.
Sick Note is unlikely to ever be available on Netflix UK. As you might know, Sky One, which produces the series, has deep connections to NowTV. That’s where the series is currently streaming and will likely continue to in the future.
