Superhero comedy ‘Extraordinary’ Disney+ launch date announced and trailer released

Superhero comedy ‘Extraordinary’ Disney+ launch date announced and trailer released

Today, Disney+ released the official trailer for the new British original comedy series “Extraordinary,” coming January 25, 2023, to Disney+ in many countries, including the UK and Ireland. All eight episodes will be released at once. The series is also released on Hulu in the US on the same day.

“Extraordinary” is set in a world where everyone develops a power when they turn 18th birthday… everyone, that is, except Jen. She turns 25 and is still waiting to get hers. She’s not even fussy about what it might be: super speed? Laser eyes? The ability to connect a USB correctly every single time? She takes it. Like a caterpillar surrounded by butterflies, Jen feels unable to move forward, stuck in a dead-end job at a party store and occasionally hooking up with Luke, a flaky young man with the annoyingly cool ability to fly. Luckily, Jen has Carrie to stop her from wallowing in her own self-pity. Inseparable since school, their relationship cycles between sister, parent and wingman. Together, they share a flat in East London with Carrie’s long-term boyfriend, Kash. Carrie has the power to channel the dead, but feels she’s been overshadowed by her own party trick: does anyone care what she has to say? Kash takes his power—the ability to turn back time—very seriously, but he’s not above using it to undo minor embarrassments, or moments when he says exactly the wrong thing to long-suffering Carrie. The fourth member of the apartment is a stray cat, named Jizzlord by the gang, who carries a surprising secret: it turns out that even cats have more power than Jen.

Drifting in a big, confusing world and armed with nothing but a little hope and a lot of desperation, Jen begins her journey to find her maybe-superpower. But when she does, she may discover the joy of being pretty okay.

“Extraordinary” is led by a cast of rising British talent including Máiréad Tyers (Jen), Sofia Oxenham (Carrie), Bilal Hasna (Kash) and Luke Rollason (Jizzlord). Additional cast members include Siobhan McSweeney (Jen’s mother, Mary), Robbie Gee (Jen’s stepfather, Ian), Safia Oakley-Green (Jen’s half-sister, Andy), and Ned Porteous (Luke).
