Netflix has released the trailer of The Kominsky Method Season 2, featuring Michael Douglas as the once eminent Sandy Kominsky, and Alan Arkin, his compatriot. The funny yet emotional series charts the journey of the duo as they explore life anew as aging best friends.
The trailer opens to Norman and Sandy attending yet another funeral — which at their age “is called having a social life”. During the somber affair, the duo runs into an old flame from Norman’s past, played by Jane Seymour. Meanwhile, Sandy is trying to come terms with his daughter (Sarah Baker) dating an older man, who is quite close to his age. The show will further explore mortality, and the unwelcome reality of aging in Los Angeles.
“This season, Sandy meets and bonds with his daughter’s new boyfriend (guest star Paul Reiser), who is uncomfortably close to Sandy’s age. Meanwhile, Norman reconnects with an old flame from his youth (guest star Jane Seymour), and after 50 years, they decide to start again,” reads the official description.
