It is an eight-episode Netflix format that will be released on the streaming service on July 29, 2022.
Neil Patrick Harris in life crisis
Barney Stinson worked so well as a character because he’s multidimensional. Rather than just portraying him as a notorious panty hunter, Neil Patrick Harris proved what a great, multifaceted actor he is in How I Met Your Mother. If you believe the first trailer for «Uncoupled», then Harris shows once again how skillfully he can reconcile the tragic with the comic.
The series is about Michael (Neil Patrick Harris) who was convinced that his life was simply perfect. But then disaster strikes: After 17 years, his partner leaves him. Overnight, Michael must face two nightmares he thought would never catch up with him — the loss of his soul mate and the fear of starting over. A single gay man in his mid-40s, Michael finds himself in New York City with no choice but to make major changes in his life.
Uncoupled is produced by Emily in Paris creator Darren Star and Modern Family executive producer Jeffrey Richman . In addition to Neil Patrick Harris, the cast also includes Emerson Brooks («The Return Of The First Avenger»), Colin Hanlon («The Sinner»), Jay Santiago («SWAT») and Iván Amaro Bullón («The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel») Series.
