You’re Gonna ‘Love’ The New Judd Apatow Series [VIDEO]

You excited about the first Judd Apatow series in over a decade? Raise your hand and show everyone around you that you’re pumped for Love.

Netflix just released the official trailer for Love and it seems to have all the classic Apatow go-to’s… like mentioning the 40 Year Old Virgin, awkward Jewish lead who likes to collect unimportant things, but most importantly the genuine story of one mans journey for love… seems legit!

The show was a collaboration between Apatow, Paul Rust (who also worked on the new season of Arrested Development) and Lesley Arfin (Brooklyn Nine-Nine) and is about Gus (Rust) and Micky (Jacobs) as they Navigate the exhilaration and humiliations of intimacy, commitment, and other things they were hoping to avoid. Netflix released a tiny teaser today to get you excited for February.

Ted Sarandos even went on record saying, “together with Paul and Lesley, he’s bringing a whole new level of agony and ecstasy to this modern day comedy of manners.”

Start feeling the Love… well… watching it February 19
