Oscar Issac and Jessica Chastain are reuniting on screen after co-starring in A Most Violent Year back in 2014 and we have all the details on how you can watch the new limited series Scenes from a Marriage on TV or online.
If the title Scenes from a Marriage sounds familiar, that's because Ingar Bergman created the original Swedish miniseries back in 1973. At that time, the miniseries was not only praised but also the subject of controversy for supposedly leading to a rise in divorce rates across Europe.
Now HBO has adapted Bergman's miniseries into a new five-part limited series that will feature hour-long episodes which will air on Sundays. Scenes from a Marriage will re-examine the dilemmas probed by the original and the limited series will explore love, hatred, desire, monogamy, marriage and divorce through the lens of a contemporary American couple.
The limited series will tell the story of Mira (Jessica Chastain) and Jonathan (Oscar Issac) as they try to navigate the ups and downs of married life. Mira is a confident, ambitious tech executive left unfulfilled by her marriage while Jonathan is a cerebral and accommodating philosophy professor who is desperate to keep their marriage intact.
If you haven't seen the original miniseries starring Liv Ullmann, Erland Josephson and Bibi Anderson yet, it's worth noting that it's currently available to stream on HBO Max in case you want something to watch in between episodes of the new limited series.
Whether you're a fan of the original or just want to see Oscar Issac and Jessica Chastain share the screen once again, we'll show you how to watch Scenes from a Marriage from anywhere in the world.
