Flaked: Season 2 lands on Netflix tomorrow
The Netflix original series Flaked returns for a second series tomorrow (Friday June 2).
The next six-episode instalment of the human comedy series lands on the streaming site tomorrow and it looks as though this season’s main theme will be that of redemption.
Starring Will Arnett, Flaked was co-written by creators Arnett and Mark Chappell (The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret). The dry-humoured series follows the life of Chip, a well-known AA leader and local hero in Venice whose public image and reputation rests on a tangled web of lies.
In season one, we saw Chip fall for the object of his best friend’s fascination (London, played by Ruth Kearney) but, when his dishonesty catches up on him, he is soon left without a home or career, let alone the respect of his friends and community.
In season two, we find Chip where we left him: at rock bottom. His life is fast unraveling as he hides his return to drinking, continually denies his addiction and persists in covering up a drunk-driving accident that killed a man a decade previously. However, as Chip finally follows the road to redemption, will he be able to accept the past, forgive and change his life for the better or will his history of lies always come back to haunt him?
“The rubber hits the road in the second season,” Arnett, who plays Chip, told the Daily News. “The stark reality of broad daylight kind of paints a different picture, and all of a sudden these people who met under these circumstances where they were lying to each other — what does that do?”
