The team behind Special have returned to the set after having to halt work on the second season under COVID-19 rules.

For those who didn’t catch the debut season, Special is based on O’Connell’s own experiences as a gay man living with cerebral palsy, navigating through the realms of dating, work, friendships and family.

Aside from his writing credentials, O’Connell has been honoured with the Human Rights Commission Visibility Award in 2019.

Special has also racked up a handful of Emmy nominations for Outstanding Short Form Comedy, Outstanding Actor, and Outstanding Actress for Jessica Hecht.
