As it says, laughter is the best medicine to keep your mood and health in good condition. A very popular quote by legendary comedian Charlie Chaplin says that ‘A day without laughter is a day wasted. Hence, one needs to find ways to laugh. Well, in this regard, there are television series that do the needful purpose, by having an ample dose of humor.
And one such example is the Disjointed TV series on Netflix. All thanks to Chuck Lorre, the man behind the curation of this web comedy series. He is also the one who created the American sitcom Big Bang Theory. But Chuck is not the one to be credited alone. David Javerbaum is also the one behind the creation of the series with him.
Disjointed is a comedy series that showcases a dream of an aged advocate in support of legalizing marijuana. She even aims to open a marijuana dispensary. Four years back, came an order from Netflix regarding a comedy series Disjointed with twenty episodes. And so came the first half of Season 1 with ten episodes after a year of production.
It hit the screens of viewers on 25th August the same year. The remaining ten episodes were included in the second half of the first season with the release of the premiere in the following year (2018) on 12th January. But sadly, what was expected came opposite. Viewers and critics did not find Disjointed interesting to watch.
The web comedy show failed to make an impact on them. It got plugged off shortly by the streaming network Netflix after the end of its first season. So is there still any hope for the new installment or is it completely canceled? Let us find out in this article.

The story of Disjointed is about an age-old experienced advocate named Ruth Feldman. After getting lifelong experience in advocacy, now she wants to live up to her dream of owning a marijuana dispensary legally in Los Angeles. But running it alone is very challenging. She needs sincere people to help her run it. Plus, security is also necessary.
And who can become her better aid other than her 20-year old son, who has just passed out of college? He along with the team of budtenders would certainly be of great help for Roth in running her marijuana dispensary. Now coming up to another prime factor which is security, the aged advocate seeks help from war veteran Carter.
Even though Ruth makes all the possible efforts in the smooth running of her dispensary, still, not all goes according to her desired plan. With the progress of the we see Ruth falling into a pool of problems, one after the other. The problems she faces in running her dispensary include the marijuana web show hosted by Dank & Dabby. Another major problem that occurs is when minors are sold cannabis accidentally by the national forests.
All such things become an add-on to the problem for Ruth’s dispensary as it falls under the scanner of the DEA and the federal government of the United States. Other than these problems, there are other challenges Ruth has to face. First is her own being high on stash. Another is her son and fellow employees who are also high at the time of their work.
Ruth & Cartner: Two major strong characters in Disjointed
In the multi-camera comedy series Disjointed, if there is anything that holds the spirit of the show then they are two-star cast members – Kathy Bates as aged Ruth, and another one is Tone Bell, who plays the role of Carter, a retired war veteran. The remaining star cast lacks the spark in their performances in comparison to them. The chemistry between Kathy and Toner works wonders in making the comedy series at least an average watch. Let us briefly know about these two actors.
Kathy Bates plays the mainstream character of Ruth Feldman in Disjointed. She is shown as an aged advocate who dreams of owning a legal marijuana dispensary in Los Angeles. The comedy series shows her struggle in running her dispensary with the help of her 20-year old son and employees, who are mostly high during the time of their duty.

The American actress was born in 1948 on 28th June. She is a recipient of many honorary awards including the Golden Globe Awards. Some of the breakthrough films in her career include Titanic, Fried Green Tomatoes, Misery, The Waterboy, and Richard Jewell.
Tone Bell was born in 1983 on 10th August in America. He plays the character of Carter, a retired war veteran experienced in 3 tours in Iraq. Ruth, the character played by Kathy, hires him for the security of her dispensary. Carter suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder.

When to expect the third season of Disjointed?
Although not many shows have been canceled for their pathetic performance by Netflix. But unfortunately, some of them are not the luckier ones. Disjointed falls in the same category. The comedy show was plugged off due to its failure to impress viewers and critics.
After season 1 with 20 episodes, Disjointed was plugged off by Netflix in 2018 on 14th February. So drop the expectations of the second installment of this comedy series in your mind. Well, let us see whether Netflix changes its stance on the renewal of Disjointed. But no surety as of now.
