The tissues may need to be brought out for this year’s Father’s Day as Kevin Hart gets to star in his first dramatic role in Fatherhood. We have everything you’ll need to know about Fatherhood, including the plot, cast, trailer, and Netflix release date. 

Fatherhood is an upcoming internationally licensed Netflix Original drama film directed by Paul Weitz and based on the screenplay written by Weitz and Dana Stevens. The pair based their screenplay on the memoirs of Matthew Logelin’s memoir Two Kisses for Maddy: A Memoir of Loss and Love.

When is the Fatherhood Netflix release date?

Fatherhood will have its Netflix premiere on Friday, June 18th, 2021, just in time to be watched on Father’s day on Sunday.

Before Netflix picked up Fatherhood as an Original, the movie was scheduled to be released in theatres in January 2021. The 2021 release date was the result of an eight-month delay which was likely the result of the global pandemic causing the shutdown of theatres across the world.

What is the plot of Fatherhood?

When Matt’s wife unexpectedly dies after giving birth to their newborn baby girl, Maddy, Matt is thrust into a crash course on fatherhood and raises her as a single father.
