The New Comedy “Blockbuster” Ironically Starts Streaming Today and Fans Are Beyond Excited

People think it’s going to be the next big feel-good comedy.

It's here, it's finally here! The first season of the new Netflix sitcom Blockbuster has dropped today and we've never been so excited for a new show. The series follows a group of employees at the last Blockbuster in America — and yes, features some of your favorite actors from past sitcoms too. 

We really can't hype this show enough. Did you know that former Brooklyn Nine-Nine star Melissa Fumero is in it? Fumero (@melissafumero) herself tweeted about the show on November 2 — and she was barely able to contain her excitement. 

"Tomorrow #Blockbuster drops on @netflix. I’m so excited and nervous for you all to see this show that we love and had the best time making. I hope you can feel the joy that went into it," she wrote. 

Okay, if that wasn't enough of an endorsement, it seems like other people in the comments section were more than ready to binge every episode. 

"I'M SO EXCITED," @rachelsdunphy exclaimed. "I’m so excited to meet Eliza and the crew!!! Can’t believe tomorrow is the day!! Staying up just to watch it," @amesvntiago added. "So excited for it as a big fan of yours and everyone from Brooklyn 99 and Superstore, this is gonna be a brilliant combo," @tristanevrs wrote. "Really looking forward to the show. I know already judging from the trailer it’s gonna be a fantastic comedy. Congratulations to all of you who made the show," @HeyItsJon92 commented. 

According to Collider, the show stars Randall Park as Timmy, a man who quickly realizes he's managing the last Blockbuster in America (for all you young whippersnappers out there, Blockbuster was a place where one could go and rent VHS tapes). The show also costars Madeline Arthur as Hannah, J.B. Smooth, Tyler Alvarez, and Olga Merediz. The show was created by Vannessa Ramos, who was a writer on both Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Superstore. So yeah, we guess you could say the cast is a little impressive. 

We'll definitely be tuning in.

Blockbuster is now streaming on Netflix.
