Josh Thomas’ new show ‘Everything’s Gonna Be Okay’ hits Stan

Anyone here a fan of the gut-wrenching, laugh-out-loud tragic comedy Please Like Me from creator and comedian Josh Thomas? Personally, I’m still reeling from that death, that breakup and that chicken scene – and could really use some happiness in my life. Thankfully, after a few years of insufferable separation anxiety, funny man Thomas is back on our screens and into our hearts with his new dramedy, Everything’s Gonna Be Okay, which premieres on Stan on January 17.

Is everything going to be okay, Josh? I feel like this is his way of apologising for the ending of Please Like Me, but only time will tell.

What’s Everything’s Gonna Be Okay about?

The 10-part US produced show, which will premiere in Australia the same day it will in the US, stars Thomas as creator, showrunner, executive producer and leading man. Thomas plays Nicholas, a gay, neurotic, 25-year-old Australia man who is visiting his single dad and teenage half-sisters who reside in Los Angeles. However, things take a drastic turn for the worst when their father suddenly passes away.

The siblings – angsty Genevieve (played by newcomer Maeve Press) and Matilda, a high school senior with autism (played by Kayla Cromer, who has revealed she is on the autism spectrum herself) – are forced to cope with the devasting grief that comes with losing someone you love – as well as the realisation that Nicholas is the closest thing in their life to an adult figure.

Nicholas, who openly admits to not caring about much besides himself and hot boys (relatable), is forced to extend his holiday indefinitely to pick up the pieces and take on the parental role in what’s about to become one of the most dysfunctional families on the West Coast. It also doesn’t help that Nicholas has been relatively absent in the girls lives – and they are pretty vocal in their dislike towards him.

“What’s the worst that can happen?” he asks. “So many bad things,” was the (warranted) response.

Where and when can I watch it?

The first episode of the show premieres on Stan on January 17, the same day as it does in the US. Episodes will become available every Friday afterwards, so you can’t be a total animal and binge this one. Check out the trailer above for a closer look into the brilliant mess that is Everything’s Gonna Be Okay.
