Therapists in movies and real life are just the same; they also listen to your concerns and make you feel like you’re not doing a bad job as you think you are, but you are surviving as best as you can. Now imagine a world where therapists kept it real with you other than telling you what you want to hear. Would you still want to book an appointment? Save your answers for later, as the upcoming series shrinking is based on the same plot and will feature Jason Segel, the lead protagonist of the series.It tells the story of a therapist who decides to tell his patients the naked truth, not soothe them. Here is everything we know about the upcoming show.

The series has a total of twelve episodes, and the first two episodes of the series will officially premiere on 27th then the other episodes will stream every week.

Shrinking Season 1 Plot: What should we expect?
According to the logline released, the upcoming show focuses on a grieving therapist programmed to tell his clients what he was taught in school. After following the book for a long time, he decides to tell his patients what he thinks and not what he was taught to tell them. Telling his patients the truth as it is and not trying to protect their feelings could take two roads. First, he could help his patients see the truth as harsh as it is and stop living in a fake air of confidence. Or being harsh to the patients whose state of mind is already delicate could lead to more diverse effects like self-harming.

The series will also star all of the casts that have been featured in the released trailer.
Shrinking Season 1 Trailer: When can we expect?
A trailer for the upcoming show is more like a teaser than an actual trailer, as it does not give an idea of what to expect in the upcoming drama. Instead of a brief explanation of snippets of what is to come, the trailer only gives a lineup of some of the people that we assume are Segel’s patients jumping up and down a trampoline. Some of the bouncing characters on the device are Jessica Williams, Lukita Maxwell (Generation), Christa Miller (Clone High), Michael Urie, and Luke Tennie. Harrison Ford finally joins the trampoline and gives Segel a dismissive look before they walk off.
