The Netflix original comedy series The Kominsky Method is preparing for its final season on the streaming service. Netflix has released the premiere date for the program’s third and final season which will be released on the platform on Friday, May 28, according to Deadline. Created by Chuck Lorre (The Big Bang Theory, Mom), the dramedy series dropped on the streaming service in the fall of 2018 and has released 16 episodes over the course of its previous two seasons.

Additional main cast members include the likes of Kathleen Turner (Romancing the Stone, Friends), Paul Reiser (Beverly Hills Cop, Mad About You), Sarah Baker (Louie), and Nancy Travis (Last Man Standing, Becker). Some of the announced guests of the upcoming season feature the returning actors reprising their roles in Emily Osment (Hannah Montana, Young & Hungry), Haley Joel Osment (The Sixth Sense, The Boys), Lisa Edelstein (House), and Graham Rogers (Atypical, Quantico). For the third season, it has been previously announced that Arkin will not be returning to his role.
