A new dramatic miniseries has just been released that will appeal to anyone who is a fan of true crime stories or fictionalized versions of real stories. The Dropout, starring Academy Award-nominated actress Amanda Seyfried is based on an ABC Audio podcast of the same name revolving around Elizabeth Holmes and the rise and fall of her company Theranos.

You might have heard of the series before when Kate McKinnon was originally attached to star in the show. McKinnon later dropped out (ironic) of the project and Seyfried was recast in the leading role. Apart from Seyfried, the show also stars Naveen Andrews and several recurring cast members like William H. Macy, Kate Burton and Stephen Fry.

For those unfamiliar with Holmes’ story, she is a former biotech entrepreneur who was convicted of criminal fraud. In 2003, she founded the company Theranos on the basis they had revolutionized blood testing with new methods that could use extremely small quantities of blood, as much as a fingerprick. She was even proclaimed one of the world’s wealthiest self-made female billionaires. She is currently awaiting sentencing.

Is The Dropout on Netflix?

Unfortunately no. The Dropout is a Hulu Original. The first three episodes of the series launched on Thursday, March 3 on the streaming service. It does not seem likely that The Dropout will ever stream on Netflix, although it is not completely out of the realm of possibility.

The former Hulu Original comedy Casual is coming to Netflix later this month. Someday The Dropout could follow suit, but for now, the best way to watch the series would be to get a Hulu subscription. New episodes will release weekly.

If you’re looking for something similar on Netflix, I recommend Inventing Anna, another series based on a true story about Instagram-heiress Anna Delvey who stole millions from New York elites and committed grand larceny.

Next. New Netflix movies and shows coming in April 2022. dark
