Hulu’s The Dropout Is a Biting 8-Part True Story

Amanda Seyfried plays Theranos founder Elizabeth Holmes in a series that pulls no punches.

Following Inventing Anna, and beginning ahead of WeCrashed, television’s year of the scammer continues on Hulu with The Dropout. The Dropout tells the story of the rise and fall of Elizabeth Holmes, the titular Stanford dropout who went on to found the now-defunct company Theranos—which at one point promised to change the world of healthcare and blood testing, and eventually found its founder convicted of fraud.

Unlike the mishandled Inventing Anna, however, The Dropout actually holds its subjects’ feet to the fire. Rather than awkwardly framing Holmes (along with her partner Sunny Balwani) as fighting some sort of noble fight, it frames her as what she was: a liar. An ambitious liar, sure, but nonetheless a liar whose fabrications not only cost people money, but wound up hurting people, too.

Amanda Seyfried, who last year picked up an Academy Award nomination for her work in David Fincher’s Mank, will likely find herself in Emmy conversations this time around for her work playing Holmes. From her work in Mean Girls and Mamma Mia to Jennifer’s Body and Twin Peaks, Seyfried has always shown an immense talent for fully transforming into character—and adding a layer of depth and a degree of complexity to a character seen frequently in the media is her latest achievement in the craft.

BETH DUBBER

The only other series regular in The Dropout is Naveen Andrews (Lost) who plays Balwani, but the show also features an impressive array of guest stars, including Laurie Metcalf, Alan Ruck, Sam Waterston, William H. Macy, and Dylan Minnette. And it makes sense for it to be that way—this is the story of Holmes, with Balwani somewhat along with her for the ride. So, it makes sense that they’re the only ones we’re seeing with any regularity.

All eight episodes of The Dropout are now on Hulu.

Has spring got you feeling flirty? A few classic rom-coms will be added starting April 1 including Love ActuallyA Cinderella Story and Monster-in-Law.

Here’s what’s coming to Netflix in March 2022

WHAT’S WORTH STREAMING

Netflix has another relatively light lineup of new releases in March, though it will feature the return of one of its most popular series.

That would be Season 2 of “Bridgerton” (March 25), the steamy Shondaland romantic drama set in Regency-era England. Netflix says Season 1 was its most-watched English-language series ever in its first 28 days, and Season 2 looks to be just as big a hit. The new season will focus on a different coupling, and while Season 1’s breakout star Regé-Jean Page is not returning, viewers can expect plenty of familiar Bridgerton faces, such as Daphne (Phoebe Dynevor), Anthony (Jonathan Bailey) and Eloise (Claudia Jessie), as well as Penelope Featherton (Nicola Coughlan), and Simone Ashley (“Sex Education”) will join the cast as Kate Sharma, a potential suitor for Anthony.

Netflix also has “Human Resources” (March 18), an animated spinoff of “Big Mouth” featuring the voices of Nick Kroll, Aidy Bryant and Randall Park, among others; Season 4 of the hit behind-the-scenes racing series “Formula 1: Drive to Survive” (March 11); the fifth and final season of the bloody Medieval drama “The Last Kingdom” (March 9); “The Adam Project” (March 11), a time-traveling action movie starring Ryan Reynolds and Jennifer Garner; the Leighton Meester Croatian-vacation thriller “The Weekend Away” (March 3); Ryan Murphy’s six-part documentary “The Andy Warhol Diaries” (March 9), which uses AI to creepily recreate Warhol’s voice to narrate; and the docuseries “Bad Vegan: Fame. Fraud. Fugitives” (March 16), about a celebrity restaurateur who embezzles millions with her new boyfriend and goes on the run.

There are also a number of new movies being added, including “My Best Friend’s Wedding,” “Shrek,” “Starship Troopers.” “Sorry to Bother You” (all March 1), “Dunkirk” (March 12) and “Blade Runner 2049” (March 26).
