The king of slapstick is back with a buzzing new show. Rowan Atkinson’s hilarious antics playing Mr. Bean in the show Mr. Bean (1990 – 1995) and the film Bean (1997) and Mr. Bean’s Holiday (2007) have earned him worldwide recognition. From that point forward, Atkinson has likewise stepped into the action genre as Johnny English in Johnny English (2003), Johnny English Reborn (2011), and Johnny English Strikes Again (2018). In this way, when we heard Atkinson was returning with the series Man Vs Bee, we needed to find out everything there was to know about the forthcoming comedy show.
Man vs Bee pretty much says it all in its title. The plot follows a bumbling father named Trevor who is a housesitter. He gets a job house-sitting a posh mansion. Seems like should be an easy enough job, correct? Yet, Trevor finds a bee in the home and winds up in a conflict against this one bee.

Man versus Bee will be released on Friday, June 24, 2022, on Netflix.
How Many Episodes Does Man Vs Bee Have?
