The Shrink Next Door Season 2 Release Date
Apple TV+ has not made any announcement about whether The Shrink Next Door will be renewed for a second season or not. But since it’s a miniseries there are very fewer chances for its renewal as it has already completed eight episodes and the last season was well executed so we do not see any reason for its continuation. If the makers still make their minds to renew the show, the series might make a comeback in 2023.
