Atypical adds Sara Gilbert in a recurring role for season 3


Sara Gilbert joins Atypical for season 3!

The Connors may not be back until this fall but fans will be able to see Sara Gilbert back on their screens soon enough. Deadline confirms the actress has booked a recurring role on Netflix’s Atypical for the upcoming third season.

Gilbert will be playing Professor Judd, a university ethics professor who will probably be someone who Sam interacts with at college. She is described as someone who is “generally irritable and chronically underwhelmed, yet capable of compassion”. It will be interesting to see how she factors into the storyline for season 3.

Atypical stars Keir Gilchrist as Sam, an autistic teenager on the cusp of adulthood who is becoming more independent. His younger sister Casey (Brigitte Lundy-Paine) is also trying to discover herself while balancing her fiercely protective nature for her brother, new school, and rocky relationship with her parents. Meanwhile, his mother Elsa (Jennifer Jason Leigh) and father Doug (Michael Rappaport) try to hold everything together throughout the series.
