Audiences are gearing up for Harrison Ford’s return as Indiana Jones next year, but Apple TV+ has managed to book him for an upcoming series from the minds that brought you Ted Lasso.
Here’s the teaser for Shrinking starring Ford and Jason Segel (How I Met Your Mother):
Here’s the official synopsis:
Shrinking follows a grieving therapist (played by Segel) who starts to break the rules and tell his clients exactly what he thinks. Ignoring his training and ethics, he finds himself making huge, tumultuous changes to people’s lives … including his own.
Besides Segel and Ford, the show also has appearances from Christa Miller, Jessica Williams, Michael Urie, Lukita Maxwell, and Luke Tennie.
Admittedly, we don’t see enough of the series to form some kind of opinion, but knowing that Ted Lasso’s Bill Lawrence (as well as Lasso actor Brett Goldstein) helped make the show, we should have an idea of what to expect. Fans didn’t even know that Ted Lasso was going to be the hit that it was, but I think that some audiences just want a feel-good, positive series after the dark few years that we’ve been having recently.
With a release date set for January, we should expect some kind of full trailer soon. At least they got our attention with this teaser.
Shrinking premieres on Apple TV+ with its first two episodes on Jan. 27, 2023. Expect new episodes to follow every Friday for the rest of the season.
