You’ll have to wait until 2016, though.
Deadline reports that Netflix ordered two seasons of the comedy Love, which will star Community’s Gillian Jacobs and I Love You, Beth Cooper’s Paul Rust. Rust co-created the show with Apatow and Lesley Arfin, who both also had a hand in HBO’s Girls. As this show is pitched as a take on modern-day relationships, there will no doubt be some common themes.
This will be a return to TV for Apatow, who co-created the beloved show Freaks and Geeks. A two-season commitment, Deadline points out, isn’t often handed out by Netflix; the exception was House of Cards. Hulu Plus was also allegedly competing for the show.
Apatow’s appeal is strong, though, and this is a big get for the company. Netflix’s Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos explained that Apatow’s “unique comedic voice” is the draw here, and that “[t]ogether with Paul and Lesley, he’s bringing a whole new level of agony and ecstasy to this modern day comedy of manners.”
The first season of the series is set to debut in 2016, with season 2 to follow in 2017.
