Apple TV+ has announced that it will renew its newest comedy series, Shrinking, for a second season. The show stars Jason Segel and Harrison Ford and premiered in January. According to reports, Shrinking has struck a chord with audiences and critics alike.
While Apple does not share specific viewing numbers, the show has performed well compared to other Apple TV+ releases. Shrinking currently sits at the top spot on the US TV+ chart, but it is expected to be overtaken when “Ted Lasso” returns for its highly anticipated third season.
The star power of Segel and Ford has no doubt helped boost the show’s popularity. Additionally, Shrinking has received positive reviews across the board, further driving interest in the series.
Shrinking is written and produced by Bill Lawrence and Brett Goldstein, who also created Ted Lasso, currently Apple’s most popular show. Like Ted Lasso, Shrinking blends laughs with personal drama, although it has a slightly darker comedic tone.

The eighth episode of Shrinking was released last Friday, with the penultimate and finale episodes set to follow over the next two weeks. The early renewal of the show for a second season demonstrates Apple’s commitment to the series, although it is unclear when the new season will air.
With Shrinking’s success and the return of Ted Lasso, Apple TV+ is poised to continue its growth as a major player in the streaming market. The combination of high-quality content and star power is proving to be a winning formula for the company.
