Kristen Stewart's Rom-Com 'Happiest Season' to Skip Theaters, Will Debut on Hulu

The upcoming Christmas rom-com Happiest Season, starring Kristen Stewart and Mackenzie Davis, will be skipping theaters and going right to streaming.

The movie was supposed to be released in theaters on November 25, right in time for the holiday season, but now it’s going to be released on Hulu that same day.

Here is the movie’s synopsis: Meeting your girlfriend’s family for the first time can be tough. Planning to propose at her family’s annual Christmas dinner – until you realize that they don’t even know she’s gay – is even harder. When Abby (Stewart) learns that Harper (Davis) has kept their relationship a secret from her family, she begins to question the girlfriend she thought she knew.

The movie was directed and co-written by Veep actress Clea DuVall. Also starring in the movie are Mary Steenburgen, Victor Garber, Alison Brie, Aubrey Plaza, Dan Levy, Burl Moseley, and the film’s co-writer Mary Holland.

TriStar president Nicole Brown said in a statement, “This holiday season — more than any other — we could all use a little happiness. It was essential to Sony Pictures and to the filmmakers that Clea’s marvelous and fresh holiday-themed romantic comedy come out when the lights are on the trees. We are excited that Hulu is geared up to make this happen in the U.S. and grateful that they love the movie as much as we do.”

Alison Brie & 'GLOW' Stars React to the Show's Abrupt Cancellation Due to COVID-19

Alison Brie and her co-stars from the Netflix series GLOW are reacting to the news that the show has been canceled.

The comedy series had already begun production on season four ahead of the pandemic, but the show was shut down along with every other movie and TV show.

Now, Netflix says there isn’t a way to feasibly continue production on a show like GLOW and it has been canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Going to miss this… Forever grateful to my GLOW family for changing my life forever. ❤️ #glownetflix,” Alison captioned a photo of the cast on her Instagram account.

Other cast members like Marc Maron, Britt Baron, Rich Sommer, and Rebekka Johnson have also shared their reactions, which you can see below.

'Glow' Cancelled By Netflix After Previously Being Renewed, 'Teenage Bounty Hunters' Also Axed

Netflix has cancelled Glow after three seasons on the streaming service, after previously renewing the show over a year ago for a fourth and final season.

The reason why? The COVID-19 pandemic.

“COVID has killed actual humans. It’s a national tragedy and should be our focus. COVID also apparently took down our show. Netflix has decided not to finish filming the final season of GLOW,” series creators Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch said in a statement to Deadline. “We were handed the creative freedom to make a complicated comedy about women and tell their stories. And wrestle. And now that’s gone. There’s a lot of sh*tty things happening in the world that are much bigger than this right now. But it still sucks that we don’t get to see these 15 women in a frame together again.”

“We’ll miss our cast of weirdo clowns and our heroic crew. It was the best job,” they continued, adding, “Register to vote. And please vote.”

The fourth season of Glow was filming when production was shut down in March due to the pandemic.

In addition, Teenage Bounty Hunters was also cancelled after only one season.

Glow is unfortunately not the only show that has been cancelled after being renewed by Netflix.

When Abby (Stewart) learns that Harper (Davis) has kept their relationship a secret from her family, she begins to question the girlfriend she thought she knew.”

Kristen opened up about getting to make a Christmas movie from a new perspective.

“I think I’ve wished to see a gay Christmas rom com my whole life,” Kristen told People. “I’m so happy and proud of Clea for bringing this into the world.”

Also starring in the movie are Mary Steenburgen, Victor Garber, Alison Brie, Aubrey Plaza, Dan Levy, Burl Moseley, and the film’s co-writer Mary Holland.
