Lunatics is an Australian mockumentary Netflix web TV series. The whole first season of the series was shot on Queensland’s Gold Coast. The series is the brainchild of the writer and producer Chris Lilley, who is also the star of the show. Known in his previous creations for his dramatic, humorous, and satirical style, Lilley gives Lunatics the same charm. The series features many characters and clever remarks.
Critics of Chris Lilley or the show were not pleasant. Since the series was released in April 2019, the series has been renewed or canceled by Netflix. But only reports are found that Netflix canceled the show after season 1.
The show has yet to obtain an official Netflix green light. Given the reviews, the lack of renewal, we are still hopeful of a new season.
The last thing we heard from Chris Lilley on the show was that the show entered Netflix Australia’s top 10 most successful releases in 2019. It was the fifth most observed term, but the second most observed one. The show has also been listed as the top ten titles in the UK.

Expected Release Date:
Season 1 of ‘Lunatics’ premiered on Netflix on 19 April 2019, with its 10 episodes. Considering Lilley’s tremendous acceptance of previous mockumentaries, we are not surprised if this program is also an instant success.
As of now, Netflix didn’t announce the renewal of the series. If the series is announced soon, then it might release at the end of 2020 or in 2021.
The cast of season 2 will include:
- Chris Lilley
- Judi Young as Rhonda
- Brock Thornburgh as Ethan
- Jett Thornburgh as Dustin
- Kane Sheehy as Harrison Gordon
Six exceptional individuals and they discuss the notion that people are not what they seem like at first.’ Introducing a theme as odd and fascinating as the earlier works of Lilley, the series follows a structure that examines the lives of these individual individuals through interviews, self-recording clips, and fly-on-the-wall footage. This goes against the long-standing proverb: The first thoughts are the last.
This mockumentary-style offers tremendous comedy and adopts the traditional format of Lilley, where eccentric, adorable characters are interviewed. It records how their almost unimaginable dreams crumble finally under the heavyweight of harsh reality. And the show isn’t all about laughter. The distinctive mannerisms and idiosyncrasies of people are very attractive. Not just that, the last episodes come and make the show a bundle with their emotional moments.
