In the first season, Ian grapples with the challenges of adulthood as a wheelchair user. He makes waves by speaking candidly about disability at a school event, contrasting with his inspirational counterpart, Rex. While attending a party, Ian tries to help his friend, Eric, win over his crush, Sam. However, his day takes a downturn after a workplace incident that leads to sensitivity training. A disastrous double date with an insufferable girl named Peyton makes Ian realize his feelings for Sam. He also faces job frustrations and personal setbacks, including a falling out with Eric over a misunderstanding with Sam. Amid the turmoil, Ian finds himself isolated, realizing that the independence he sought may have cost him his relationships.

In the upcoming second season, viewers can anticipate Ian dealing with the fallout of his actions in the first installment, including strained relationships with Eric and Sam. As he sets out to navigate newfound independence, he may face challenges while attempting to rebuild trust and repair friendships. With themes of personal growth and reconciliation, season 2 promises to delve deeper into Ian’s journey towards self-discovery and acceptance.

Although no official announcements have surfaced, audiences can certainly expect Sean Towgood to return as Ian in the forthcoming season, alongside Tina Jung as Sam and Vas Saranga as Eric. Tara Spencer-Nairn will likely return as Angela, along with George Alevizos as Rex, Christian Smith as Darrell, and Joanne Latimer as Jen.

Toronto has recently served as the filming location for productions such as ‘Beacon 23‘ and ‘Gen V.’ Additionally, upcoming projects slated to shoot in the city include Netflix’s ‘Bet.’
