While the US has been happily bingeing Fleishman Is In Trouble since November on Hulu, it's almost time for it to make its streaming debut in the UK. Yay! On February 22nd, the series based on Taffy Brodesser-Akner’s best-selling novel will drop on Disney+, and believe us when we tell you we *can't* wait.
For those of you who're not up to speed with the series, it focuses on Dr. Toby Fleishman (Jesse Eisenberg), a recently divorced man in his mid 40s trying to navigate his new life. As he tries out dating apps for the first time, he finds the 'dating success' that he never experienced in his youth. But in the midst of all this, he learns his ex-wife Rachel (Clare Danes) has disappeared, leaving him to look after their kids alone.
What follows is Fleishman learning to balance his children, his work-life (where he's recently been offered a promotion), and the world of 21st-century dating. However, amongst this chaos, he realises that until he's more honest about what caused his marriage breakup, he'll never know what happened to Rachel.
Oh, and the legendary Lizzy Caplan (Janis Ian in Mean Girls) also stars, which is an incentive in itself to watch the show.
Speaking of... Don't have a Disney+ membership? You can get one for just £7.99 a month or for £79.90 a year. While there's still over a month to go until you can stream Fleishman is in Trouble as many times as you like, if you want to get your subscription ahead of time, you can sign up to Disney+ and watch all your favourite films and TV shows using this link here.
There's plenty of other stuff on the streaming platform that you can feast your eyes and ears on while you wait, too. From reality series like The Kardashians to dramas like Pam & Tommy, you'll wonder why you didn't sign up sooner!
