Prepare yourself because Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne are reuniting for Platonic, a new comedy television show coming to Apple TV+. Rogen and Byrne previously regaled audiences in 2014’s Neighbors, later returning for 2016’s Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising. The four-year lack of Rogen and Byrne tearing it up on screens across the nation makes this news deeply exciting. So, what’s their new project all about?
Rogen has been more of a behind-the-scenes guy when it comes to TV these days, with producer credits on The Boys, Black Monday, Preacher, and Future Man keeping him busy. Platonic will be Rogen’s first series regular role in a long time, although he’s clocked in notable recurring roles on Future Man and The League in recent years. This new Apple TV+ comedy will also be the first of a few big TV roles for the comedy star, with Amazon Prime Video’s Invincible and the animated show Santa Inc. also on the horizon.
Meanwhile, Byrne is coming off a hot run in the limited series Mrs. America, where she gained notice playing Gloria Steinem. Platonic is the second TV show she has in the works over at Apple. Earlier in 2020, Variety reported Byrne would also star in Physical, a dramedy set in the world of aerobics in 1980s Southern California.
Stay tuned for more information on Platonic as this project develops.
