Acclaimed Sundance Now Original and AMC+ romantic comedy The Lovers is set to premiere in the U.S. and Canada with two episodes very soon and it’s time to take a look! Ready?
Here we go!
The series will debut on Thursday, December 7, exclusively on Sundance Now and AMC+, with additional episodes dropping weekly on both platforms. Set in Belfast, Northern Ireland, The Lovers is a sexy, funny, fight-y love story about two people who appear to be utterly wrong for each other – yet may just be utterly right.
The six-part series follows Janet (Roisin Gallagher), a bad-tempered, hilarious, Belfast supermarket worker who couldn’t give a s–t about much of anything at all, including her life, and Seamus (Singer/Songwriter and Critics Choice® Awards-nominee Johnny Flynn), a handsome, self-centered, political broadcaster with what looks to be a perfect London life and a celebrity girlfriend.
When Seamus unexpectedly drops into Janet’s world (literally over the wall and into her backyard) they instantly clash – and yet also find themselves inextricably drawn to each other…
