The Netflix comedy series ‘Flaked’ is a web series produced in the United States. The story of Chip, a self-described “guru” in the Alcoholics Anonymous group in Venice, Los Angeles, is told through the eyes of ‘Flaked,’ a film about a recovering alcoholic. As it turns out, Chip’s life isn’t always as it appears, and we’re more likely to see him acting like a man-child than a responsible adult who is attempting to put his life back together.
Mark Chappell and Will Arnett (who also stars) co-created and produce the sitcom, which Mitch Hurwitz, creator of “Arrested Development,” also serves as an executive producer for. Season 1 of ‘Flaked,’ which premiered on March 11, 2016, is a relatively new show for those who aren’t familiar. Netflix renewed the show in July 2016 for a six-episode Season 2, which premiered on June 2, 2017, despite garnering dismal ratings from television reviewers. Season 3 of “The Walking Dead” has captivated fans since it was announced that the show would not be returning for another season in 2013. This is what we’ve learned so far.
Chip and Dennis are the show’s main protagonists. Chip (Will Arnett) and Dennis (David Sullivan) are the two primary characters in the film. Ruth Kearney portrays London, a waitress Chip and Dennis both have a thing on, while George Basil portrays Cooler, the show’s antagonist.
George Flack is played by Robert Wisdom, Lina Esco plays Kara, Dennis Gubbins plays “That Fucking Guy,” and Christopher Mintz-Plasse plays Topher in the supporting cast. Additionally, there are numerous other recurrent and episodic characters that feature in the show.
It is reasonable to assume that all four of the show’s principal actors will return if it is renewed for a third season.
Flaked is a simple storey about two best friends who appear to be recovering alcoholics who are trying to get their lives back on track after a lifetime of drinking. Dennis’ mother’s residence in Venice, Los Angeles, is where Chip works as a furniture maker and where Dennis works as a sommelier. They are both members of the local Alcoholics Anonymous group.
Intriguingly, Chip has a well-deserved reputation among the members of Alcoholics Anonymous for his ability to assist those who are trying to wean themselves off of alcohol. Toxic masculinity abounds in Chip’s persona, which is a far cry from the enlightened self-help guru he portrays himself as. Instead, he is a greedy, loud, and self-centred individual. Chip drinks secretly although professing to be a sombre recovering alcoholic, and he has a talent for snagging attractive women on whom Dennis has a thing.
As the series progresses, we see Chip break up with Kara and pursue a relationship with London, a waitress that Dennis has feelings for. Chip’s relationship with Dennis is complicated by this, and the show follows him as he tries to keep up with the lies he tells to others.
Despite its best efforts, the show’s humour falls short of the mark. Adding insult to injury, Chip’s man-child demeanour and hostility can be a little irritating. Chip and Dennis’ wants are reflected in the show’s female characters, although they aren’t developed enough to serve as characters who add to the show’s narrative. To put it another way, even Will Arnett fans may be put off by the show’s lacklustre narrative and terrible execution.
Season 1 of “Flaked” received a dismal 38 per cent on Rotten Tomatoes, which is to be expected considering the show’s terrible reception from critics. The show’s audience, on the other hand, has been overwhelmingly positive, with an IMDb user rating of 7.2/10.
Flaked Season 3 Release Date
Season 2 of ‘Flaked’ debuted on Netflix on June 2, 2017. Season 3 news has been eagerly awaited by the show’s audience for some time. There has been no official news on the future of ‘Flaked’ for nearly two years now. Is there going to be the third season of “Flaked”?
There are a couple of things to keep in mind. “Dull and meaningless, Flaked makes it uncomfortably evident that the man-child character is no longer compelling,” a television critic wrote in the show’s critical response. Fans that want the show to come back are definitely in the minority. Season 2 of “Flaked” was just six episodes, compared to the eight in Season 1, despite Netflix’s decision to extend the show for a second season. This may be a sign that the show’s financing has been curtailed.
It has been nearly two years since Season 2 of ‘Flaked’ debuted, and there is no official news on the show’s future. With Netflix having already renewed the programme for Season 2 only a few months after it premiered on the streaming service in Season 1, the extended silence around ‘Flaked’ does not inspire confidence. It’s better not to get your hopes up regarding the show’s future based on these facts.
That being said, we’ll have to wait and see what Netflix has in store for us. The third season of Flaked, if it is renewed, could air in October or November of 2019. Season 3’s release date will be announced by Netflix and we’ll update this section accordingly.
In the meantime, here is the Season 2 trailer for “Flaked” to give you a taste of what’s to come.
