Netflix has long since earned its reputation as the patron saint of canceled TV series, owing to its resurrections of both 'Arrested Development' and 'The Killing,' but the latest property pulled from the scrap heap is wet, hot, and altogether unexpected.

Now, the first trailer for 'Derek' season 2 has hit, showcasing more than a few changes in store for the simple nursing home worker.
