After 17 years together with his partner, Michael wakes up one day to realise he's lost the person who he thought was his soulmate - and now he's a single man in his mid-forties in New York City. The gay panic is real.
Having taken a minor break from the small screen in recent years (apart from his cameo in 'It's A Sin'), Neil Patrick Harris is back to lead a new gay rom-com for Netflix, 'Uncoupled'.
The eight-episode series will see him star as Michael, a man in his mid-forties who finds himself at a pivotal crossroads in his life; he thought his life was perfect until his husband blindsides him by walking out the door after 17 years.
Overnight, he's forced to confront two nightmares — losing what he thought was his soulmate and suddenly finding himself a newly-single gay man in New York City.
We're getting self-empowerment vibes from 'Uncoupled', all about picking one's self back up after a harsh break-up and realising that life doesn't have to stop for the heartbroken. Being single can give you a new lease of life...
Since his break-out role in 'How I Met Your Mother' as Barney Stinson ended, Harris has kept quite a tight relationship with Netflix. He played Count Olaf in Netflix's 'A Series of Unfortunate Events' and also lent his voice to two animations on the streaming service - 'F Is for Family' and 'Eden'. He's also played minor roles in a number of feature films, including 'Gone Girl' and 'The Matrix Resurrections'.
Here's the teaser trailer for 'Uncoupled'.
'Uncoupled' begins on Netflix on Friday, July 29.
