Netflix announces new Japanese original series 'He's Expecting'

Have you ever wondered what a society would look like, in which men became pregant? Netflix is attempting to answer that question with its next original Japanese series, He's Expecting. The series will be directed by Yuko Hakoda and Takeo Kikuchi, and will star Takumi Saitoh and Juri Ueno.
 
Based on the bestselling manga The Preganncy of Kentaro Hiyama by Eri Sakai, the story follows Kentaro Hiyama, an ad executive, who suddenly gets pregnant, much to the chagrin of his partner Aki Seto. As Kentaro tries to navigate the pressures of pregnancy, he gets a crash course in the hardships and discrimination that pregnant women face in everyday life. TV Tokyo is producing the series, which is yet to commence filming. It is expected to premiere on Netflix sometime in 2022.
