Judd Apatow’s new comedy series Love has been picked up for two seasons by streaming network Netflix.

Netlix Picks Up Apatow's 'Love'

Netflix announced that it had ordered a pair of seasons of the comedy on Tuesday, reported Deadline. Apatow reportedly co-created and wrote Love with Paul Rust and Lesley Arfin.

“Judd Apatow has a unique comedic voice that manages to be delightful, insightful, and shockingly frank — often at the same time,” Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos said in a statement. “Together with Paul and Lesley, he’s bringing a whole new level of agony and ecstasy to this modern day comedy of manners.”

Apatow, best known for directing adult comedies like Knocked Up and This is 40, expressed due enthusiasm for getting picked up by the progressive platform – as well as gratitude for getting to work with Rust and Arfin.

“I am so excited to get to work with Paul and Lesley on this project,” said Apatow. “Netflix has been supportive in ways I couldn’t create in my wildest fever dreams.”

Love stars Rust and Gillian Jacobs as Gus and Mickey, a dysfunctional couple dealing with things all couples must deal with – such as intimacy and commitment. The catch is that neither is exactly keen on dealing with such things, making it woefully difficult for them to make it work. Their relationship is the focal point, but just one of a few in the relationship-centric series.

After news broke of the series getting picked up, both Apatow and Rust took to Twitter to share it with their followers.

Love’s first season on Netflix will be 10 episodes long, while the second season is slated to have 12. The first season will premiere on the network in 2016.
