It's the crossover we never knew we needed: Michael Cera and Amy Schumer, starring alongside one another on our screens. Sounds... interesting, huh? Hang on while we break down everything we know about their hilarious upcoming series that's left us scratching our heads...

Titled Life & Beth (originally, Love, Beth), the 10-episode series will take us inside the hilariously dysfunctional life of Beth (Amy Schumer), who spends her days as a successful wine distributor. She makes a good living and resides with her “dream” boyfriend in a swanky Manhattan apartment. On paper, what could possibly go wrong, right? Safe to say, a whole lot.

After a sudden life-changing incident forces her to revisit her past, Beth embarks on a journey to self-discovery. Through flashbacks to her younger self, we'll watch her uncover the truth about who she really is and who she wants to be. Consider us intrigued. But wait, it gets better.

Where does Michael Cera come into play? The actor will star as John, a farmer-turned-chef who is known for his brutal honesty and unapologetic self. And lucky for us, he'll be a series regular. In other words? We'll be seeing a whole lot of him.

In case you forgot, it's actually been a while since Cera's wonderfully awkward self blessed our screens. After saying goodbye to him during the final season of Arrested Development back in 2019, we've been wondering when we'd be catching his quirky one-liners again. And, well, it appears our prayers have finally been answered.

Unfortunately, we might be waiting a while before we actually catch him and Schumer on their latest adventure. But while we have yet to receive a release date on the upcoming Hulu comedy, we've got a feeling it'll be well worth the wait.

In fact, something tells us we're in for a whole lot of laughs - and awkwardness. Until then? We guess Superbad, Juno, and Trainwreck will have to tide us over in the meantime.

Stay tuned, folks.
