If you enjoy dark comedy, Apple TV+ has something lined up for you. The Shrink Next Door is a yet-to-be-released American dark miniseries with a rich cast. Bloomberg Media is producing it in collaboration with Gloria Sanchez Production and Marc Television.
It is inspired by actual events recorded in ‘The Shrink Next Door’, a Wondery and Bloomberg Media Podcast. Also known as Der Therapeut Von Nebenan, it is expected to premiere in less than a month.
It is pretty evident that several Apple TV+ users have been waiting ever since the streaming platform relayed the news of this thriller series in June. Let’s see what they should expect.
The Shrink Next Door Release Date: When Will It Premiere On Apple TV+?
Users won’t have to wait longer since this series is scheduled to premiere on November 12, 2021, an announcement stamped with the release of its trailer on October 13, 2021, a month before its scheduled premiere. We can all expect a treat with the hype it has received months before its intended release date. Let’s find out more about this dark miniseries.
The Shrink Next Door Plot: What Is It About?
From the show’s Synopsis, it is pretty clear that actual events inspire this series. It is based on the bizarre relationship between a psychiatrist Dr. Isaac ‘Ike’ Herschkopf ( Paul Rudd), and a long-term patient Martin ‘Marty’ Markowitz, which Will Ferrell plays.
The doctor and patient get used to each other, and over time the charming doctor Ike finds a way of inserting himself in Marty’s life to the extent of moving in with him and persuading him(the patient Marty) to name him the president of the family business.
This series, therefore, explores how a normal doctor-patient relationship develops into something exploitative. It turns out to be manipulative with lots of power grabs and dysfunction.
With a dash of comedy, it is pretty clear why dark comedy lovers cannot wait for its premiere. Let’s find out who is in the cast even as we patiently wait.
