Not long to go until the Fatal Attraction TV series bunny hops its way to our screens – so, here’s everything you need to know about how to watch it and when it’ll be available to stream.

The show is based on the 1987 movie of the same name, which saw Michael Douglas portray a man who has an extramarital affair with a woman played by Glenn Close. After he tries to end the affair, things take a terrifying turn.

Fatal Attraction proved to be one of the most successful movies of the ‘80s, immortalizing the term “bunny boiler” (if you know, you know). But it also received heavy backlash upon its release for its portrayal of women, with feminist author Susan Faludi writing in 1991: “Women’s lives were framed as morality tales in which the ‘good mother’ wins and the independent woman gets punished.”

However, the newly adapted TV series is set to right some of the wrongs of its source material while telling the story through a fresh and updated lens. And with the show ready for its premiere in a matter of days, here’s your guide on how to watch it and when it’ll be available to stream.
