Have you marked your calendars for the Life & Beth release date yet? The new comedy is star Amy Schumer's latest deep dive into womanhood. 

Unsurprisingly, the Life & Beth trailer is riddled with LOL-worthy moments about breakup coping mechanisms, finding your footing in life and starting anew. Though there will likely be belly-laughs aplenty, the new series does focus on some of life's more challenging moments, too. 

Truthfully, it's the palette cleanser we've been waiting for after a heavy lineup of all-things deception. If you've already finished Fresh on Hulu and need a breather from that unexpected love story/thriller/nod to Hannibal Lecter, the streamer's new dramedy from the Trainwreck and I Feel Pretty creator is soon to debut.

When is the 'Life & Beth' release date?

The series is set to premiere on Hulu on Friday, March 18. The entire 10-episode debut will be immediately available, and viewers can watch the show in its entirety. (Raise your hand if you're going to binge it.)

Hulu subscription options are available below. Plans range from $6.99 per month ($69.99 per year) to $75.99 per month for those who want to add on live TV and other streaming options.

Watch the 'Life & Beth' trailer:

Beth (Schumer), a New York City-based wine distributor, is approaching 40 and finds herself in an unfulfilling relationship. Though her love has just ended, she's also faced with unexpected and difficult familial issues that uproot her entire life...all the way back to Long Island. 

Though undeniably difficult, perhaps this abrupt change is what Beth needs to get her on the proper path. It's time for our confused heroine to admit what she really wants: Nordstrom Rack trips instead of club nights. (Hey, that capsule wardrobe isn't going to manifest itself.) 

Like many of Schumer's projects before Life & Beth, her Hulu series is filled with plenty of flashbacks.

What we particularly love about the trailer is the unexpected look at Long Island's wine country, with the help of Michael Cera who plays John, a farmer who consumes rabbit liver, works on the vineyards and will not murder Beth. Is anyone else sensing some sparks? Will there be a "defining the relationship" talk at some point in the series?

There will be plenty of things to relate to throughout Life & Beth's 10-episode run: heartbreak, grief, frustration, confusion. Throughout the journey, Schumer hopes that the show's vulnerability will help viewers connect to the story. 

“Life is major trauma and pain,” she told TV Insider. “Being able to laugh about it and grow from it is all we can do.”

We're looking forward to the laughs, trauma, pain and all!
