Get prepared for extra capital-D (emphasis on the D) discourse, as a result of HBO has renewed The Rehearsal, Nathan Fielder’s most formidable and outlandish social experiment but, for a second season.
In The Rehearsal, Fielder ostensibly units out to assist random folks whom he plucks from imprecise Craigslist postings with difficult facets of their life by serving to them “rehearse” utilizing elaborate set constructions and dozens of actors for peak authenticity.
In the 5 episodes which have aired up to now, the Vancouver native has “helped” a trivia-obsessed New Yorker confess a white deceive his bar trivia teammate, tried to teach one other man into confronting his brother over their grandfather’s will in an elaborate reproduction of a Raising Cane’s quick meals restaurant, and even staged what it will be like to boost a baby for a girl contemplating motherhood.
The information comes blessedly for followers simply forward of Friday night time’s season finale — as the shakeups with Warner Bros. Discovery, together with the ongoing gutting of HBO Max, had made it look like the destiny of the beloved, but clearly very costly sequence was seemingly hanging within the steadiness. But it’s Friday, and all of us deserve just a little deal with!
“One more chance to get it right,” HBO tweeted on Friday afternoon, together with a posted that includes Fielder staring blankly into the digital camera whereas a lady sits on a mattress behind him, wanting distraught. “The Rehearsal has been renewed for season 2.”
“Nathan has sparked such a lively conversation with The Rehearsal,” stated Amy Gravitt, govt vice chairman of HBO Programming, in a statement. “We have no idea where season 2 will take us, and that is the delight of this boundary-pushing show from a truly singular talent.”
Much of the dialogue round The Rehearsal centered on whether or not the top justified the means, as Fielder makes use of a wide range of manipulative ways — together with mendacity, deception, and in a single episode, even stalking — to see his elaborate plans by. However, because it’s turning into more and more clear (significantly following the penultimate episode) the objective is to show the digital camera again on himself. Though, nobody is aware of for certain who the actual Nathan Fielder even is, and it appears extraordinarily unlikely that the sequence will ever really clear that up.
With any luck, followers will see season 2 of The Rehearsal someday in 2023.
