Donald Glover and Phoebe Waller-Bridge announced a new series Friday in Glover’s Instagram Stories. The series will be called Mr. & Mrs. Smith and presumably stars the Solo: A Star Wars Story co-stars in the titular roles. 

The announcement came in the form of two TikTok trend parodies. At first Glover begins to dance to 24KGoldn’s song “Mood” only to be interrupted by the Fleabag creator doing the “Silhouette Challenge.” At the point when that viral challenge typically switches to a silhouette in red light, the clip smash-cut to black. Information about the series then appeared, noting it’s a joint production between Amazon and New Regency studios. A release date of 2022 ends the teaser.

The Hollywood Reporter confirms that the series is a reboot of the 2005 movie of the same name, starring Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Glover previously promised a busy 2021 to his fans at the tail end of last year.

"Donald and Phoebe are two of the most talented creators and performers in the world. It’s truly a dream for us, as it will be for our global audience, to have these two forces of nature collaborating as a powerhouse creative team,” said Jennifer Salke, Head of Amazon Studios in a press release. “We can’t wait to see how Donald, Phoebe and [co-creator] Francesca [Sloane] make it their own. We’re thrilled to be working with them.”
