Shrinking Season 2 – When Is It Returning To Apple TV+?

Shrinking is a comedy-drama TV series produced for Apple TV+. Created by Brett Goldstein, Bill Lawrence and Jason Segel, the first season was a big hit for the streaming platform.

Starring Jason Segel, Jessica Williams and Harrison Ford, Shrinking follows the story of a therapist named Ray, who is struggling to deal with the recent loss of his wife.

As he tries to keep his life and practice together, he starts to break the rules and tell his clients exactly what he thinks, often leading to tumultuous changes in their lives.


With 10 episodes, the first season started streaming in January 2023. A few weeks later, Apple gave the green light for Shrinking season 2.

So now that we know we're getting another instalment, when can we expect to see it on Apple TV+?

Shrinking Season 2 Release Date

The good news is that we know we are getting Shrinking season 2. The not so good news is that we're going to have to wait for it!

With no confirmation that the second season has even begun filming, a writer's strike on in the US and at least 10 months between seasons, we'll be lucky to get Shrinking season 2 in the Spring of 2024.

As always, I will keep digging and scouring the internet to bring the latest updates. And as soon as I have a date I will let you all know!

Shrinking Season 1 Recap

Jimmy is struggling to grieve the loss of his wife while being a dad, friend, and therapist. Frustrated, he decides to try a new approach with everyone in his path: unfiltered, brutal honesty.

So Jimmy decides to breach ethical barriers by telling his patients what he really thinks, resulting in massive changes to his and their lives.

Add in his two co-workers Gaby and Paul, his deceased wife's best friend Liz, his best friend Brian and his teenage daughter Alice, and soon Jimmy has a lot to contend with.

But moving passed his grief is going to take more than a few quick changes. And soon Jimmy learns that there are no quick fixes in life. But thankfully he has his friends and family to help him through.

Shrinking Season 2 What Will happen?

There's a lot to unpack from the finale of Shrinking's first season. Of course, that also means there is plenty of material for the second season!

We know that Jimmy was trying to move on by packing up his wife's belongings but maybe it was all a little too fast for Alice.

Despite a couple of blips, Brian finally tied the knot but undoubtedly marriage will be a big step for him so he may need some advice going forward.

We were also left with a big will-they-wont-they between Jimmy and Gaby as it looks like she might have deeper feelings for him that she realised.

Liz and Brian are going into business together. But more that all of that we had that doozy of an ending….when Jimmy's patient, Grace, recalling Jimmy's advice about not putting up with Donny's abuse, snaps and pushes him off a cliff.

So maybe Jimmy's approach to therapy wasn't as good as he thought!
