Shrinking is an American comedy-drama television series created by Bill Lawrence, Jason Segel and Brett Goldstein. The series stars Segel as a grieving therapist who decides to become drastically more involved in the lives of his patients. Harrison Ford, Jessica Williams, Christa Miller, Michael Urie, Luke Tennie and Lukita Maxwell also star.
The series premiered on January 27, 2023, on Apple TV+. It has received positive reviews, with praise towards its performances, writing, humor, and examination of grief. It was renewed for a second season in March 2023.
- Jason Segel as Jimmy Laird, a therapist grieving the death of his wife
- Jessica Williams as Gaby, a fellow therapist working with Jimmy at the Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Center
- Luke Tennie as Sean, a patient suffering from anger management issues who has sessions with Jimmy
- Michael Urie as Brian, Jimmy’s best friend who is a lawyer
- Lukita Maxwell as Alice, Jimmy’s teenage daughter with whom he shares a strained relationship
- Christa Miller as Liz, Jimmy’s next-door neighbor who also helps with looking after Alice
- Harrison Ford as Dr. Paul Rhoades, a senior therapist and colleague of Jimmy’s at the Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Center who has Parkinson’s disease.
It was announced in October 2021 that Apple TV+ had ordered a ten-episode season for the series, which would star Jason Segel, who co-created alongside Brett Goldstein and Bill Lawrence.
In April 2022, Harrison Ford, Jessica Williams, Christa Miller, Michael Urie, Luke Tennie, and Lukita Maxwell joined the cast, with James Ponsoldt joining the production as a director and executive producer. As revealed in a 2023 interview with James Hibberd of The Hollywood Reporter, Ford took up the offer to play Dr. Paul Rhoades despite mentioning years ago in 2002 that he works only once a year, citing the COVID-19 pandemic and his commitments to the titular role of the long-delayed Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny as one of the reasons he had done not much work as he wished and wanted to try on new things. Similarly to his role in 1923, Ford accepted the role despite there not being a script at the time, trusting that Segel, Goldstein, Lawrence and Brian Gallivan would deliver him a good script.
Production began in April 2022. The series was released on January 27, 2023, with the first two episodes premiering together and the rest releasing on a weekly basis. It has a total of ten episodes in the first season.
The series theme song “Frightening Fishes” was written by Ben Gibbard and Tom Howe.
In March 2023, Apple TV+ renewed the series for a second season.
