Always Be My Maybe is an upcoming Netflix Original romantic comedy. The story was written by stars of the film Randall Park and Ali Wong, along with Michael Golamco.

What is the plot of Always Be My Maybe?

Marcus and Sasha have been lifetime friends; ever since they were kids, the pair have always been close but never romantically involved. Finally, as adults, Sasha is single, and Marcus, who’s been in love with her for many years, is building up the courage to ask her out. Chickening out last minute to tell her his feelings over the phone, he asks to meet up with her the next day, only for Sasha to tell Marcus she met someone the night before.
