What’s This TV Show About?
A Hulu military bureaucracy satire based on the Joseph Heller novel, Catch-22 stars Christopher Abbott, Kyle Chandler, George Clooney, Hugh Laurie, Giancarlo Giannini, Austin Stowell, Gerran Howell, Pico Alexander, Jay Paulson, Julie Ann Emery, Grant Heslov and Jon Rudnitsky. The series centers on centers on John Yossarian (Abbott), a US bombardier in World War II. Every time “YoYo” nears his quota of completed missions, the brass raises it. When he pleads with Doc Daneeka (Heslov) to declare him unfit for duty, it falls to the medic to explain the infamous “Catch-22.” Only a crazy person would fly these deadly missions, but if a man is afraid for his safety in the face of danger and puts in for a discharge, he is declared sane.
Unless they decide to publicize viewership statistics, it is usually difficult to predict whether Hulu will cancel or renew a series like Catch-22 for season two. In this case, I expect Catch-22 will be a one-season series. It was made as a mini-series and is based on the novel of the same name, so there’s a conclusion.
That said, if it proves to be a smash-hit for Hulu, it’s possible they’ll back up the money truck and ideas for another season will flow like a river. It happened with The Handmaid’s Tale. Prior to his 1999 death, Heller did revisit some of the characters in his book Closing Time, as well as a one-act play and some short stories, so there’s potentially some more source material to plunder. Until we get confirmation either way, I’ll keep an eye on the trades and update this page with any developments. Subscribe for free Catch-22 cancellation and renewal alerts.
