The TV adaptation of Dolly Alderton's bestselling book premieres on Tuesday, June 7—and if you're worried about how to watch Everything I Know About Love, BBC's latest, online because you don't live in the UK, fear not! We're here to help. 

Described as "a messy, raucous stumble into bad dates and heartaches—and surviving your twenties", the seven-episode BBC One series is like a millennial Bridget Jones’s Diary, starring Bel Powley and Emma Appleton as twentysomething best friends Birdy and Maggie as they move into a North London houseshare with Nell (Marli Siu) and Amara (Aliyah Odoffin). 

In the present, they deal with all of the joys, horrors and growing pains of entering adulthood, while the series also flashes back to the pair's adolescence in the early 2000s. 

The much-anticipated new series is one of our Screen Time editors' picks for June 2022. But how to watch Everything I Know About Love, even if you're not located in the UK like Birdy and Maggie? Allow us to be your binge guide.

Dolly Alderton ''Everything I Know About Love' book

The BBC series is a highly fictionalized version of Dolly Alderton's beloved, semi-autobiographical book of the same name. "There are lines that were said in real life and the main relationships are reworked relationships from real life. But a lot of it is imagined,” the author told Harper's Bazaar (opens in new tab) in a June 2022 interview.

Alderton added: "It was also quite liberating, how heavily fictionalised it was, so it didn't feel as raw as it did when I first wrote it. Plus, I'm so far away from that. I'm now in my mid-thirties and I was writing [Everything I Know About Love] when I was still in my twenties."

“I think I personally feel very lucky that I'm writing about that period with a good few years away from it, because it gives you a sense of clarity of the reality of the situation, rather than maybe the romance of it,” Alderton told the outlet, saying she was wary of "the desire to write these girls as much more self-aware than they would have been at 24 years old."

"I had to lean in to their hypocrisy and their mistakes and their embarrassing moments," she said. 

Sounds like our twenties!
