‘Dear Edward’ Tells a Story of Survival, Grief & Life in Trailer (VIDEO)

The Friday Night Lights reunion on Apple TV+ is coming in February.

The streaming service has released the trailer (above) for the 10-episode Dear Edward, from Jason Katims and starring Connie Britton, Taylor Schilling, Colin O’Brien, and more. It will premiere on Friday, February 3, with three episodes dropping on premiere day, followed by one weekly through March 24.

Dear Edward is based on the best-selling novel of the same name by Ann Napolitano and described as “a heartbreaking, life-affirming, and uplifting story about survival, resilience, connection, and the examination of what makes us human.”

The drama tells the story of Edward Adler (O’Brien), a 12-year-old boy who survives a devastating commercial plane crash that kills every other passenger on the flight, including his family. As Edward and others all over the world affected by the tragedy try to make sense of life after the crash, unexpected friendships, romances, and communities are formed. The trailer offers a look at what life is like for Edward after he survives, as well as for those who lost people in that crash in the grief support group.
