Netflix always has what you need, when you need it. Recently, the streaming giant released the comedy series fishand she already secured a spot in the Top 10 TV Shows list on August 9th. If you’re excited to see this hilarious show, we have to tell you who you’re expecting to see in it.
fish is an Australian television series created by actress and comedian Kitty Flanagan and Vincent Sheehan. Kitty also co-wrote and co-directed the series. In addition, Kitty’s younger sister, Penny Flanagan, co-wrote the show with Kitty, while Tom Peterson was hired to co-direct.
Although fish is new to Netflix, not really a new show. The premiere took place in March 2021 on Australian television network ABC TV. A second season was later planned, which aired in October 2022 and then concluded in November 2022. It is currently unknown if there will be a third season.
However, while there are two seasons of the comedy series, only the first season is currently available to stream on Netflix. It is unclear whether fish Season 2 will ever find its way to the streamer. But depending on how well the first season performs on Netflix will probably decide whether the streaming giant will acquire the streaming rights for the second season. That’s if Netflix hasn’t already acquired the rights, as the streamer may just be waiting for the right time to relegate it fish Season 2. We’ll just have to wait and see what happens.
