Apple has announced an early season two renewal for 'The Big Door Prize,' its new character-driven comedy from Emmy Award-winning creator David West Read. The first season of the 10-episode half-hour comedy is now streaming on Apple TV+.

An official SXSW selection, "The Big Door Prize" quickly rose to Rotten Tomatoes Certified Fresh status following its global premiere to rave reviews on Apple TV+, and has been hailed as "thought-provoking," "hilarious" and "one of the best comedy debuts in years."

"We are so grateful to the audiences around the world who have already embraced the weird little hopes and dreams of our Deerfield residents, and we could not be more excited about where we plan to take them in season two," said creator David West Read. "Thanks to our partners at Apple TV+ and Skydance, we have an incredible opportunity to keep building the magic and mysteries of 'The Big Door Prize' with this truly remarkable ensemble cast."


Apple Announces Early Season Two Renewal for 'The Big Door Prize'

The fourth episode of "The Big Door Prize," premieres today on Apple TV+. In this week's new episode, titled "Father Reuben," a Morpho-inspired wedding leads to celebration, while Father Reuben (played by Damon Gupton), struggles with the machine's growing influence.

Based on M.O. Walsh's novel of the same name, "The Big Door Prize" tells the story of a small town that is forever changed when a mysterious machine appears in the general store, promising to reveal each resident's true life potential. Dusty Hubbard (O'Dowd), a seemingly content, cheerful family man and high school teacher, watches everyone around him reevaluate their life choices and ambitions — based on the machine's printouts — and is forced to question whether he is truly as happy as he once thought. While he remains skeptical of the machine, his wife, Cass (Gabrielle Dennis), indulges in the dream that there's something bigger out there for her. Like many of Deerfield's residents, the couple has lived a relatively safe, uncomplicated life, until the arrival of the Morpho machine. However, all of that is about to change when the community is forced to reconcile with their unfulfilled achievements in pursuit of a better future. In addition to O'Dowd, the series stars includes Gabrielle Dennis, Ally Maki, Josh Segarra, Damon Gupton, Crystal Fox, Djouliet Amara and Sammy Fourlas.

"The Big Door Prize" is produced by Skydance Television and CJ ENM/Studio Dragon. Read serves as showrunner and executive producer. David Ellison and Dana Goldberg serve as executive producers for Skydance Television; Miky Lee, Young Kyu Kim and Hyun Park executive produce for CJ ENM/Studio Dragon, with Bill Bost and Sarah Walker. Anu Valia, Molly McGlynn, Todd Biermann, Jenée LaMarque and Declan Lowney direct the series in season one.


The second season of "The Big Door Prize" is already in production.
