I Think You Should Leave Season 2 Release Date, Cast And Plot - What We Know So Far

Creator Tim Robinson delighted sketch comedy fans with his world-askew sketches in "I Think You Should Leave with Tim Robinson." Executive producers, Robinson and Zach Kanin, had previously given a peek into their absurdist humor with Robinson's run on Netflix's 2016 comedy showcase: "The Characters." Afterward, the writer and actor went on to co-create and star in Comedy Central's "Detroiters."

On their second run with the streaming giant, the "Saturday Night Live" writers brought along a stack of famous faces to help carry the show — including Steven Yeun, Will Forte, and Cecily Strong, among many others. The show had comedians, tragedians, and seasoned character actors take a seedling of a problem, like gift receipts, and turn them into worst-case scenarios.

Since its debut in 2019, fans have been waiting for news on a second season of the sketch comedy show. Here's what we know about Season 2 of "I Think You Should Leave with Tim Robinson" so far.

What's the release date for I Think You Should Leave Season 2?

Netflix announced the renewal of "I Think You Should Leave" in 2019. Originally, the show was expected to return in 2020, but production was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The creators confirmed the second season via statement, which read, "We are very excited to be working with the Lonely Island, Irony Point, and Netflix to make another season of 'I Think You Should Leave.' We are so thankful we get to do it again!"

During a 2021 shareholder meeting, Netflix stated that "the production delays from COVID-19 in 2020 will lead to a 2021 slate that is more heavily second-half weighted with a large number of returning franchises" (via Collider) — a promising hint for the return of the Netflix original. 

Then, on June 8, 2021, Netflix announced in a teaser video (via YouTube) the official release date for "I Think You Should Leave" Season 2. The series is coming back for its second outing on July 6.

What is the plot for Season 2 of I Think You Should Leave?

The first season of "I Think You Should Leave" was a collection of six, roughly eighteen-minute episodes. The sketch times varied, and were separated by '70s throwback graphic cards. Like sketch comedy series' "Key and Peele," "Mr. Show," and a number of others before it, "I Think You Should Leave" does not carry an overarching plot. Instead, it is likely Season 2 will take on the same format as before: a healthy mix of embarrassing moments taken to the extreme via commercial parodies. Choosing some of the best in the bunch isn't easy, but "New Printer" — which stars Patti Harrison of "Shrill" — can be ranked as one of the best sketches for relatable moments.

That isn't to say that sketch shows haven't been able to stretch a joke out. Noted in sketch comedy history is the feature film "The Whitest Kids U Know Present: The Civil War On Drugs," which aired in parts at the end of every episode in Season 5. There's also all the Monty Python movies, in case you forgot.

Given that both Kanin and Robinson have experience in long-form television, any new formats they'll bring to Season 2 remain to be seen.

Who will be in the cast for I Think You Should Leave Season 2?

We know we'll see the return of creators Robinson and Kanin, who appear in nearly every sketch in the first season (although Kanin's supporting roles are uncredited). The creators have a combined 12 years of experience as writers for the longest-running sketch show of all time, "Saturday Night Live." And with access to a large cache of comedic actors, it's likely we'll see the return of friendly "SNL" faces like Vanessa Bayer, Cecily Strong, and Will Forte.

To add to the comedic clout, the creators mentioned Season 2 of "I Think You Should Leave" will once again involve The Lonely Island comedy group helmed by "SNL" alum and "Brooklyn 99" star Andy Samberg — who also appeared in Season 1.

Although jam-packed with his fellow alumni, Robinson also made sure to vary Season 1's cast. Sketches featured "Minari" star Steven Yeun, "Best of Show" star Fred Willard, Tim Heidecker of "Tim and Eric," Michelle Ortiz of "Gentefied," and Cuban character actor, Ruben Rabasa, among other familiar faces. Since sketches rely on the trusted delivery of their actors, it's likely we'll see the return of Robinson's friends in Season 2, as well.

"I Think You Should Leave With Tim Robinson" was named by Variety as one of the best shows to watch in 2019, and was in the company of other hit  comedies like "Pen15," "Barry," "Fleabag," and Netflix's animated series, "Tuca & Bertie."
