‘Forever’, is an American comedy-drama web television series that airs on Amazon Video. The show first premiered on September 14, 2018. It has been created by Alan Young of ‘Master of None‘ and ‘Parks and Recreation‘ fame, and Matt Hubbard, who worked on ‘Parks and Recreation’ with Young, but is also known for his work on the hit NBC show ’30 Rock’.
The show revolves around a couple who lead a completely comfortable but very predictable conjugal life in the suburbs. However, suddenly a situation arises when they find themselves in otherworldly circumstances, raising questions about love and marriage in the afterlife.
Lovers tend to make promises of eternity to each other in the prime of passion, however not every always is forever. This series seeks to take a philosophical and harrowing look at the concept of everlasting love. If you are planning to tell your lover that your feelings are timeless, then you should definitely watch this show to gain some perspective. Critics too have praised it, saying, “Forever is a gently harrowing and mirthful dive into the ennui of matrimony, elevated by Maya Rudolph’s dazzling turn of not-so-quiet desperation”.
Forever Cast: Who is in it?
The cast of this rom-com, ‘Forever’, includes Maya Rudolph as June and Fred Armisen as Oscar in the lead roles as a couple. One can recognize Maya from her appearance in ‘Bridesmaids‘, ‘Grown Ups’ or even ’50 First Dates’. In 2000, Rudolph became a cast member for the NBC’s TV series, ‘Saturday Night Live.’ Fred Armisen too was a cast member for the same show from 2002-2013. There are several recurring and guest characters who attempt to help the couple navigate the afterlife or to deal with death.
In the upcoming season, it is likely that the Hoffmans, that is June and Oscar, will return. It remains to be seen if new faces are added to the recurring and guest lists if the show continues exploring the premise of eternal love.
Forever Plot: What is it about?
‘Forever’ is a romantic comedy that has been conceptualized around marriages and the ifs and buts that might go through a couple’s head, over the passage of a few years, into their married life. The thing with marriages is that not many take the “forever together” aspect of it with all seriousness as people are so in love at the moment that everything else just kind of fogs out.
