Sure, we've already caught her stealing identities and failing (hilariously) as a bridesmaid, but something tells us the Identity Thief star's latest adventure will be like nothing we've ever seen before. That's right, our favorite comedian is officially making her way to our Netflix screens again, and we've got everything you need to know.

Not only is McCarthy set to bless our screens in only a matter of time, but she'll be doing it alongside somebody very special: Her husband, Ben Falcone, marking their latest project as the 6th collaboration the couple has ticked off together; as if we couldn't love them anymore. So, what can we expect, exactly?

For starters, the 16-episodes series, titled “God’s Favorite Idiot,” happens to be written by Falcone himself, which, as you already know, means we’re in for a whole lot of laughs. Starring both he and McCarthy as tech support employees, their characters – Clark Thompson and Amily Luck, respectively – may be working a typical 9-5, but don’t think this story is anything ordinary.

That's right, aside from the fact that we'll get to watch these lovebirds fall in love on our screens, Thompson and Luck will also be met with an impending apocalypse because, well, why not? Oh, and did we mention the part where Luck's love interest (Falcone) becomes an unwitting messenger of G-d?

Yep, we've also got lots of questions, but you know what that means: While we can't tell you when, exactly, we'll be tagging along on this adventure, we'll simply have to wait and see how this one plays out for ourselves - and something tells us this one will be well worth the wait.

But don't take our word for it: "He makes me laugh, like crazy gut-laugh, four or five times a day. I hit the jackpot," as McCarthy told Ellen DeGeneres of her comedic legend of a husband. Yup, we're in for a real treat.
