‘Happy Together’ is an American comedy sitcom that airs on the CBS. It first premiered on October 1, 2018. Created by Tim McAuliffe and Austen Earl, the series tells the story of a couple in their 30s, Jake and Claire, trying to upgrade their life after they get tired of their boring lives. They are reminded of their younger selves when an upcoming pop star who feels a connection with their suburban life, decides to move in with them.
Harry Styles, who made his acting debut, in Christopher Nolan’s ‘Dunkirk‘ is on board as a co-executive producer of the show. He also used to be a member of the famous pop band ‘One Direction’. He appears to be the biggest crowd puller for ‘Happy Together’ and the plot of the series is also loosely based on his experience.
While fans took to the series more for Styles than the show itself, critics were none too impressed with the content. They conceded that the show might get a few laughs due to the stunning performance by the trio in the center of the plot, but as far as originality is concerned, the show lacks quite a bit in that department.
