If you are searching for something new and exciting to watch over the coming weekend, look no further than Mr. & Mrs. Smith on Prime Video.
Mr. & Mrs. Smith may be based on the 2005 action-comedy of the same name, but that's where the similarities stop. For starters, Prime Video's Mr. & Mrs. Smith is a TV series that consists of eight episodes, all of which will be available to stream on the platform on Friday, Feb. 2. And, this time, the two agents the story focuses on know they are agents. They were paired together as a married couple, John and Jane Smith, to complete their new assignment.
In the movie, two agents are married without knowing that they are each agents working for competing agencies. The series is taking a different approach here, which should be interesting to see. And since all episodes will drop on Prime Video at once, it gives you something to binge over the weekend. Additionally, the spy comedy features several familiar faces, including Donald Glover. Here's where you may recognize the cast from.
Donald Glover is John Smith
Donald Glover stars as "John Smith," a super spy who is paired with "Jane Smith" for his latest mission. The actor is known for his roles in Solo: A Star Wars Story, the comedy Community, and the FX drama Atlanta, among several other projects.
