The season finale of Nathan Fielder's The Rehearsal is set to debut tonight on HBO, but fans were given the good news that this won't be the last we see of the ambitious and bizarre experience, as Season 2 has officially been ordered. Ahead of the release of the first season, the project was largely shrouded in secrecy, as it is such an outlandish and ambitious project from Fielder that it was difficult to sum up in a trailer or synopsis. Ahead of the Season 1 finale, fans will surely wonder if the second season will be a continuation of events we saw in these first episodes or if Season 2 will be an all-new experiment. Check out the season finale of The Rehearsal tonight on HBO.
"Nathan has sparked such a lively conversation with The Rehearsal," Executive Vice President, HBO Programming Amy Gravitt shared 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."
The official HBO Twitter account shared the above art for Season 2, with the caption, "One more chance to get it right," sure to inspire speculation that the next batch of episodes will be a continuation of Season 1.
HBO describes the series, "Nathan Fielder (Nathan for You, HBO's How To with John Wilson") returns to television for a new series that explores the lengths one man will go to reduce the uncertainties of everyday life. With a construction crew, a legion of actors, and seemingly unlimited resources, Fielder allows ordinary people to prepare for life's biggest moments by 'rehearsing' them in carefully crafted simulations of his own design. When a single misstep could shatter your entire world, why leave life to chance?"
While Fielder's Nathan for You was an absurd and often uncomfortable project, it had a relatively straightforward objective in its efforts to explore unconventional routes to support small businesses. The season premiere of The Rehearsal looked to be taking FIelder's comedic sensibilities to new heights, only for the rest of the season to be an even more bizarre examination of the human condition, with some audiences even believing the entire narrative to be a carefully orchestrated storyline from Fielder akin to films like The Truman Show or Synecdoche; New York.
Stay tuned for details on Season 2 of The Rehearsal.
