Alan Arkin Departs Netflix's 'Kominsky Method' Ahead of Final Season

Alan Arkin will not be returning to The Kominsky Method for its third and final season, Deadline has announced.

The 86-year-old seasoned actor played Norman in the hit Netflix series opposite Michael Douglas‘s Sandy.

It’s reported that Alan made the decision prior to Netflix renewing the series for a third season, and didn’t want to continue on the show beyond season two.

Norman’s exit will be addressed in the upcoming season, which was renewed over the summer by the streaming service amid production shutdowns during the pandemic.

The Kominsky Method centered on Sandy Kominsk, an aging former actor-turned-acting coach and his agent and friend Norman Newlander. The story focused on the duo’s later years in LA with new challenges.

It was announced that this other actor will not be returning to their show, too. See the reason behind the decision here…
