Marvel star Brie Larson’s new Apple TV+ drama series will be arriving this autumn.

The Captain Marvel star has shared a first look at Lessons in Chemistry in a tweet that confirmed it will be premiering on the streaming service on October 13, 2023 worldwide.

The eight-part drama series comes from The Office and Jury Duty writer-producer Lee Eisenberg, and also features The Big Bang Theory's Kevin Sussman in a supporting role.

Larson has the leading role as scientist Elizabeth Zott, who is unjustly fired from her own laboratory in the 1960s. Elizabeth makes a career change by hosting her own TV cooking show where she can educate housewives on science.

The ensemble cast also includes Top Gun: Maverick's Lewis Pullman, How to Get Away with Murder's Aja Naomi King and The Flight Attendant's Stephanie Koenig.

Outside of a brief cameo in Ms Marvel, Lessons in Chemistry is Larson's first major TV role since she had a guest arc in Community a decade ago. Larson is producing the series alongside Ozark's Jason Bateman and Under the Banner of Heaven's Michael Costigan, among others.

The Marvels has a release date of November 10, 2023. Captain Marvel is streaming on Disney+ and available on DVD, Blu-ray and digital download.
