Be prepared to be whisked away this October as a new romance series hits your screens. Although this month will mostly be filled with horrors, mysteries and thrillers, you can catch a break from them and be transported all the way to Italy with a sweeter-than-sugar romance taking place all the way in Italy. From Scratch, a new Netflix series will tell the tale of two people who fall in love, despite being from different backgrounds.
People often wonder if the romance genre has been overdone lately. With the same old meet cutes and happy endings, however, From Scratch strives to bring something new to the table with their story. This series has been inspired by a memoir, which makes it all the more interesting and exciting. Here is everything we know about From Scratch so far:
What is the Story of From Scratch?
From Scratch is about two people from different backgrounds, mostly cultural, who fall in love in Italy. The two protagonists of this series are Amahle “Amy” Wheeler and Lino. Amy is an American student who has decided to study abroad in Italy, where she meets Lino, a chef. If there’s one thing we know about cross-cultural romances, is the fact that they are never easy. From Scratch follows the journey of this couple and their hardships, hurdles and everything in between as they fall in love with each other.
There will be a plot twist somewhere in the series, one that will change the circumstances. All we have to wait and see is whether or not Amy and Lino’s love will surpass all the challenges. Will they come out if it even stronger? And more importantly, will we all fall in love with their love?
The Cast of From Scratch
When you’re watching romance, one of the most important things is chemistry between the two people who are meant to fall in love. Whether it is two men, two women, a man and a woman, or anything other combination. Just like that, who plays Amy and Lino is extremely important to this series, and From Scratch has definitely hit the sweet spot with casting. Zoe Saldana will be playing the role of Amy, and Lino will be played by Eugenio Mastrandrea. Although Eugenio might be a new face for most people, Saldana is best known for her work in the MCU, mainly in the Guardians of the Galaxy films. Fans can’t wait to see her take on a different role!
Aside from the two love birds, the rest of the cast will include Roberta Rigano, Lucia Sardo, Danielle Deadwyler, Saad Siddiqui, Kellita Smith, Keith David and Judith Scott. Of course, there will be a few more characters sprinkled across the episodes and it’s only a matter of time until we witness all of them on our screens.
When and Where Can You Watch From Scratch?
You’re in luck because you won’t have to wait too long until the release of From Scratch. The series will premiere on the 21st of October. It will have a total of eight episodes, and once again, you’re gonna consider yourself very lucky as all eight episodes will premiere at once. So you can begin your binge and you won’t have to wait for weekly releases. All episodes will be available to stream on Netflix, which is giving its viewers a little bit of romance in the midst of all the horror and jump scares.
What is From Scratch Based On?
The Netflix series will be based on a memoir titled “From Scratch: A Memoir of Love, Sicily, and Finding Home” written by Tembi Locke. The book is based on the love story between Tembi and Saro, who will now be adapted to Amy and Lino in the Netflix series. The memoir captures several themes of love, the fullness of life, the beauty of the world, grief, family love and forgiveness. The fans of this memoir can only hope that the Netflix adaptation does justice to it.
Is There a Trailer for From Scratch?
Netflix has blessed us with a trailer that will make all our hearts flutter with excitement and love. There’s no doubt that people often judge a series or movie by its trailer, and if that is the case, everyone will want to watch From Scratch when it finally releases on Netflix. Zoe Saldana is glowing in this trailer, and all the other cast looks fresh and interesting too.
