Trying is an intimate comedy about a young couple who just want to start a family and move into the next stage of their lives.
The Apple TV+ series is written and produced by relative newcomer Andy Wolton who previously worked on The Coopers vs the Rest, Lookalikes, and The Great Travel Hack.
The first two seasons saw the couple deal with fertility issues and eventually adopt two children.
What is Trying about?
The sitcom follows couple Jason and Nikki who were trying for a baby for years without success.
Eventually, they made the decision to adopt, but their outlandish friends and weird family threatened to put off the adoption agency and derail their plans.
At the end of season two, the pair were finally able to adopt two children, Princess and Tyler, and looked forward to starting their new life as a family.
As they try to connect to their children and make sure that they are allowed to continue to care for them long term, obstacles may get in the way.
The official Apple TV+ says: “After a dramatic end to season two, the eight-episode third season of Trying picks up with Nikki and Jason waking up as new parents to two children they are still getting to know.
“Now they just have to keep hold of them, which proves to be trickier than they initially thought.
“Thrown straight into the parental deep end, Nikki and Jason’s relationships with each other and with their nearest and dearest are tested as they desperately try to navigate the ups and downs of parenting — while hanging onto their kids, and their sanity.”
