Brie Larson is going from superhero to scientist!

In the new series “Lessons in Chemistry,” Larson plays Elizabeth Zott, a determined chemist who faces all sorts of challenges in the 1950s when women had to fight to be seen and heard.

The Apple TV+ series, adapted from the best-selling novel by Bonnie Garmus, will debut with its first two episodes on Oct. 13. Larson also executive produces the series, which contains eight episodes total. Lee Eisenberg serves as the showrunner.

Elizabeth Zott is determined to make strides in the field of abiogenesis (the evolution of organisms), but because she is a woman, the men in her lab don’t take her seriously. That is until she meets Calvin Evans (Lewis Pullman), another chemist who matches her IQ. Evans first becomes enthralled with Zott’s research, but before long, he falls in love with her as well. Her precise and delicious cooking might also have something to do with that.

And let’s not forget about the clever canine Six-Thirty, who makes Zott’s life immensely better the moment they meet. Romance, feminism and more abound in “Lessons in Chemistry.” We have all the details about the release schedule and more below:
