What would you risk for a chance to have it all? What/If starring Renée Zellweger premieres May 24, only on Netflix. Fate is a lie. There is only choice. Today, we have the first trailer, which announces the official premiere date, along with the early look images.
Neo-noir social thriller What/If explores the ripple effects of what happens when acceptable people start doing unacceptable things. The first season of the Netflix original series focuses on a mysterious woman's lucrative, but dubious offer to a cash-strapped pair of San Francisco newlyweds. All 10 episodes of What/If will become available to Netflix members worldwide on May 24, 2019.
The Netflix original series What/If stars Renée Zellweger (Cold Mountain, Jerry Maguire), Jane Levy (Castle Rock, Suburgatory), Louis Herthum (Westworld), Blake Jenner (American Animals, Glee), Samantha Ware (Glee), Keith Powers (Famous in Love), Daniella Pineda (Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom), Juan Castano (Shades of Blue), John Clarence Stewart (Marvel's Luke Cage) & Dave Annable (Brothers & Sisters).
Executive produced by Showrunner Mike Kelley, Melissa Loy (Page Fright); Alex Gartner, Charles Roven (Atlas Entertainment); Robert Zemeckis, Jack Rapke (Compari Entertainment). What/If is produced by Warner Bros. Television for Netflix.
Renée Zellweger first made a name for herself way back in 1993 with a breakout role in the cult classic stoner comedy Dazed and Confused immediately followed by her star turn performance in Reality Bites. Empire Records is another fan favorite, but it was her role in Jerry Maguire that turned the actress into a super star. She would literally become a household name with the title role of Bridget Jones in a trilogy that has stood the test of time. She took a 6 year break starting in 2010 following her performance in My Own Love Song. But she came back strong in 2016 with The Whole Truth and has been going ever since.
Jane Levy is a horror favorite from her roles in the Evil Dead remake and the hit thriller Don't Breathe. She was most recently seen in the Stephen King series Castle Rock playing Jackie Torrance. And she had a small but memorable role in Twin Peaks. She also starred in 52 episodes of the hit sitcom Suburgatory, and had a memorable part in Showtime's still running hit Shameless
These latest images come from Netflix streaming. You can bing all ten episodes later this month, when What/If arrives in just a few weeks. This shouldn't be confused with Marvel's What If? series happening on Disney+, which will be an animated series that takes a look at the MCU through different possible scenarios with some of the original cast from those movies coming back. This is decidedly much more adult fare.
