Welcome to Flatch, an American mockumentary comedy, is back for a second season. Season 2, Episode 1 of Welcome to Flatch premieres on FOX on Thursday, September 29 at 9 p.m. ET. The Fox comedy is undeniably popular and is expected to become one of the network’s best comedies. The popularity of the first season led to the series being renewed for a second season. The first episode of Welcome to Flatch aired in March 2022. The comedy series is shot in a documentary format, with a film crew touring the imaginary Ohio town of Flatch documenting the activities of the town and its citizens. Flatch is full of interesting and eccentric characters, such as Kelly Mallett and her cousin and best friend, Shrub Mallet. They are, of course, the protagonists of the series.
Season 2 of Welcome to Flatch
Season 1 of the mockumentary-style comedy laid the groundwork for the story and the townspeople by delving into each character and identifying their quirks. The local annual Scarecrow Festival, in which Kelly and Shrub participated, was a highlight of Season 1. The two cousins, his girlfriend Cheryl, the famous editor of the local newspaper The Flatch Patriot, and others were handed over to the local pastor, Father Joe.
The season concluded with the fourteenth episode, Merry Flatchmas, set around the city’s Christmas festival. The climax of the conclusion was that Kelly put her father in charge of the celebrations, and things went horribly wrong. The second season picks up where the previous one left off. So we will have to wait and see what happens after the Christmas calamity. Unfortunately, no trailer for season 2 has been released. When the new season kicks off, it looks like we’ll be going deep into Flatch. Season 2 has only confirmed three episodes so far. Welcome to (Barb) Flatch is the title of Episode 1.
