Michael Douglas' Sandy Kominsky won't have his trusted agent and friend Norman Newlander for the final season of their Netflix comedy. "I hear the decision was made long time ago, with Arkin indicating he would not continue beyond Season 2," reports Deadline's Nellie Andreeva of Arkin's surprise exit. "That was not reflected in the Season 2 finale of The Kominsky Method as it was unclear at the time whether there would be a third season, I hear. Arkin’s departure will be addressed in Season 3, and Norman is being written off in its planned storyline. Season 2 of The Kominsky Method was released on Netflix in October 2019. It is unclear exactly when Arkin’s exit was formalized but it happened before the industry was upended by the coronavirus pandemic in March, I hear."
