Apple TV+ today unveiled the premiere date and a first look at Platonic, the upcoming 10-episode comedy series starring and executive produced by Rose Byrne and Seth Rogen. The show is co-created, directed, and co-written by Nick Stoller and Francesca Delbanco.
The half-hour comedy is set to make its global debut with the first three episodes on Wednesday, May 24, 2023 on Apple TV+, followed by new episodes weekly, every Wednesday.
Platonic follows a platonic pair of former best friends approaching midlife (Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne) who reconnect after a long rift. The duo’s friendship becomes all consuming – and destabilizes their lives in a hilarious way.
The ensemble cast also stars Luke Macfarlane, Tre Hale, Carla Gallo, and Andrew Lopez.
Platonic is produced by Sony Pictures Television, where Stoller and Stoller’s Global Solutions has an overall deal. Byrne, Rogen, Stoller, Delbanco and Conor Welch executive produce.
The series marks the latest collaboration for Apple TV+ and Byrne, who also stars in the critically-acclaimed Apple Original series Physical, which is set to debut its third season later this year.
Rogen is also set to star in an upcoming, untitled comedy series for Apple TV+ that he will write, direct and executive produce alongside Evan Goldberg.
It will join a growing offering of hit and award-winning comedy series on Apple TV+, including Emmy Award-winner Ted Lasso, Shrinking, Schmigadoon!, The Afterparty, The Big Door Prize, Bad Sisters, Trying, Mythic Quest and more.
