Netflix has launched a second series of the Kominsky Method. The news comes shortly after the comedy’s Golden Globe success.
The series won the award for Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy (Michael Douglas) and Best Musical or Comedy Series.
Production on the new series will begin later this month, with Douglas, Alan Arkin and other cast members reprising their roles. It will include eight episodes.
It is not known when it will be available to stream.
Netflix is hungry for major rewards this year. For the first time, it was nominated for an Oscar for Best Picture in the form of the Spanish-language film Roma. In all, the film won 10 Oscar nominations.
The streaming service is spread worldwide, with 140 million customers worldwide. But he had a difficult relationship with the movie industry. The film industry decried what it saw as tokenism on Netflix’s part, when the streaming service released its original films in theaters in order to be eligible for major awards. It was even banned from some major competitions like Cannes.
A major victory like the Oscar for Best Picture would undoubtedly give him considerable influence in Hollywood.
