Following last month’s first look teaser, Apple TV+ has set a premiere date for Lessons in Chemistry. Led and executive produced by Brie Larson (Captain Marvel), the drama series will hit the streaming service this fall on October 13.
Based on the bestselling debut novel of the same name from author, science editor, and copywriter Bonnie Garmus, Larson portrays Elizabeth Zott, a woman whose dream of being a scientist is put on hold in an early 1950s patriarchal society. When Elizabeth finds herself fired from her lab, she accepts a job as a host on a TV cooking show, and sets out to teach a nation of overlooked housewives — and the men who are suddenly listening — a lot more than recipes.
The show’s ensemble cast also includes Lewis Pullman (Top Gun: Maverick), Aja Naomi King (How to Get Away with Murder), Stephanie Koenig (The Flight Attendant), Kevin Sussman (The Dropout), Patrick Walker (Gaslit), and Thomas Mann (Winning Time: The Rise of the Lakers Dynasty).
Lee Eisenberg serves as showrunner on the series, which is produced by Aggregate Films. Executive producers include Susannah Grant and Larson, along with Jason Bateman and Michael Costigan for Aggregate Films, Natalie Sandy through Piece of Work Entertainment alongside Eisenberg, and Louise Shore.
The first two episodes of Lessons in Chemistry will premiere on Apple TV+ on October 13, followed by new episodes weekly on Fridays through November 24.
