Tonight, Netflix will release the second season of Will Arnett’s comedy series, Flaked.
The sitcom centers on Arnett’s character Chip, a recovering alcoholic who lives a lazy life in Venice, California. According to the synopsis for the upcoming season, Chip is no longer welcome in Venice– members of his community still hold a grudge against him, and after losing his store, friends, and bike, he has to figure out how to manage his new (and not great) life. According to Deadline, Chip will begin the season by seeking comfort (or rather, a sponsor) in Dennis. He’ll also lend a hand to his friend in his new business venture.
