Have you been missing Succession since the Emmy Award-winning HBO drama series left the airwaves last year? Well, Netflix has a new business drama that's pretty perfect for fans of the dysfunctional Roy family dynasty.

Two-time Emmy Award winner Jeff Daniels headlines the limited drama series A Man in Full, which is based on the 1998 novel of the same name by Tom Wolfe. As it's an over-700-page-tome, it's about time the best-seller was adapted for the screen. And if it's going to be turned into a miniseries, there's no better team than Daniels and prolific television writer and producer David E. Kelley.

Here's what to expect from the series per Netflix:

"When Atlanta real estate mogul Charlie Croker faces sudden bankruptcy, political and business interests collide as Charlie defends his empire from those attempting to capitalize on his fall from grace."

Nearly halfway into 2024, Netflix has racked up a number of new original limited series hits, and those hits will just continue to pile up. A Man in Full keeps the ball rolling in May with its release at the top of the month. But when can you start watching what's sure to be one of the biggest titles of the month and a future Emmy nominee? Here's everything you need to know about the release time!

What time to A Man in Full premieres on Netflix

A Man in Full makes its official premiere on Netflix on Thursday, May 2. The complete season drops at midnight in the West Coast of the United States, while the East Coast will have to stay up a bit later to start watching right away when it's released at 3 a.m. Since it's such a dense and gripping miniseries, it's unlikely anyone will tune in at the crack of dawn, but you never know!

The limited series is a worldwide release on Netflix and will be available to stream in all territories with Netflix. For more information on the show's release time where you live, check out our guide to when Netflix releases new episodes and movies based on time zones around the world.

If you're looking for more Netflix shows to watch this week after finishing up A Man in Full, make sure to check out some of the week's best highlights on the streamer, including Jerry Seinfeld's directorial debut Unfrosted and the new season of the hit reality show Selling the OC. Of course, you can also check out the series Baby Reindeer, which remains popular, and the romantic comedy Anyone But You.

However, if A Man in Full isn't quite your speed and you're looking for something similar but a bit lighter, it might be time to start watching The CW's reboot of the '80s primetime soap Dynasty. Like the Netflix miniseries, Dynasty takes place in Atlanta and centers on an embattled businessman and his family as they defend their empire. The show has drama and genuine laughs!

Watch A Man in Full only on Netflix beginning Thursday, May 2.
