Maggie, an American romantic comedy created for the streaming app Hulu by Justin Adler and Maggie Mull, aired for the first time July 6, 2022. Adler overall created the comedy series, whilst Mull was the writer on the project. This series was originally supposed to just be a short film. Though Mull was hired to turn it into a series. The first season of Maggie consists of 13 episodes.
The series follows a woman Maggie who is in her 30’s and also a psychic. For the most part, Maggie does not date and has completely sworn it off. Maggie swears off dating due to the fact that she can see everyone around her’s future and doesn’t really see the point, as most relationships end up bad. She ends up seeing into her own future when out for a night at a party. She meets a random stranger and instantly has a vision of their future.
This series challenges you to ask yourself if you think you could fall in love if you thought you already know the outcome. Maggie is a relatable show that depicts many different things that happen in the real world. And things that people struggle with in their day-to-day dating life. Maggie serves to show viewers that even though she’s a psychic, she doesn’t have as good of a hold on life and love as she thinks she does.
Though Maggie has only been out for a couple of weeks, it has gained some mixed reviews. Some viewers absolutely love the characters, plot, and overall performance. Though, other critics have used the words “completely outdated”. Critics think it is a good try, but for the current generation, it’s not up to speed. As of right now, there is not a second season in the works. It is unknown if their will be.
