Netflix is bringing a hilarious comedy series back to its screens, and fans are stoked. The hit series, Unstable, starring Rob Lowe and his son, John Owen Lowe, is gearing up for its second season. But rumor has it that this time, there's a new creative mastermind behind this chapter of the story.

Andrew Gurland, who created the American sitcom Married, which aired on FX from July 17, 2014, to October 1, 2015, will be the new showrunner for the second season. So something tells us these next eight episodes will be pretty epic. However, there had been a halt in the show's production as a result of the writers' strike back in May. The second season's journey initially kicked off in late March but hit pause a couple of months later. But it looks like this project will be back on track again later this month - and you know what they say: good things come to those who wait.

As for the premise of the series' second season - the plot features an introverted son, played by John Owen Lowe, joining his father, portrayed by Rob Lowe, on a wild biotech adventure. Rob Lowe's character, Ellis Dragon, is a quirky, universally admired biotech entrepreneur with a touch of narcissism. His son, Jackson Dragon, is, well, the opposite. The big question hanging in the air is whether Jackson can save his father's biotech empire, mend their rocky relationship, and escape the huge shadow of his larger-than-life dad.

So, what exactly inspired these events of the story? It's actually Rob and John Owen Lowe's real-life antics on social media! It seems like John Owen has a hilarious habit of trolling his old man in the funniest ways possible and fans love it. So why not bring it to Netflix? The show, co-created and executive produced by both Lowes and the outgoing Victor Fresco, also features an impressive cast including Sian Clifford, Aaron Branch, Rachel Marsh, and Emma Ferreira. Not only that, but Gurland is stepping up as an executive producer alongside Rob Lowe, John Owen Lowe, and Sean Clements. Be sure to stay tuned as we find out when Unstable will be available on Netflix!
