Shtisel (Hebrew: שטיסל) is an Israeli television drama series about a fictional Jewish family living in Geula, Jerusalem. Created and written by Ori Elon and Yehonatan Indursky, the series premiered on 29 June 2013 on yes Oh, and is distributed by the online streaming service Netflix. The show runs at 12 episodes per season. In May 2019, writer Yehonatan Indursky announced that the show would be renewed for a third season.
The series follows the lives of Shulem Shtisel (Dov Glickman), the Shtisel patriarch and a Rabbi at the local yeshiva, as well as those of the other members of his family. Shtisel is set in a religious, Internet-free neighborhood. The community follows strict haredi customs and violating the norms often causes chaos within the family. However, the characters, who are more open to secular lifestyle, reflect Geula's moderation in comparison to their neighbors in Mea She'arim, the adjacent community known for religious extremism.
In April 2019, Dr Maurice Yacowar (retired film studies professor and author of "The Sopranos on the Couch", Continuum) published an episode by episode analysis of the [first] two Shtisel seasons, titled "Reading Shtisel: A TV Masterpiece from Israel".
In May 2019, it was announced that Shtisel has been renewed for a third season.
