The Netflix Comedy, Man Vs Bee is bringing Rowan Atkinson back on TV as a housesitting dad named Trevor, whose arch-nemesis is a bee. The series will be released soon and will be full of funny scenes.
Co-created by Atkinson and Will Davies, Man Vs Bee will show Atkinson once again in a witty and clumsy role. HouseSitter Productions is producing the series, and David Kerr is the director. Furthermore, Davies has written the script of the series and is also an executive producer for it, along with Chris Clark. Atkinson has already worked with most of the producing team before, so you can quickly expect a spectacular series.
Suppose you love all the previous works of Atkinson, from his role as Mr. Bean to Johnny English, Man Vs Bee is something you shouldn’t miss out on. Hence there are all the details surrounding it.

The official release date for Man Vs Bee has been announced. The first season of the quirky and goofy Netflix series will be premiering on June 24, 2022, at 12:00 a.m. PT or 3:00 a.m. ET on Friday. It will be airing on Netflix. Also, it will have nine episodes, and each episode will be pretty short, ranging from 10 to 20 minutes.
Man Vs Bee Trailer
The official trailer for the slapstick comedy is here. It shows Atkinson trying his best to take down his opponent, the bee while destroying everything in the house. It shows him shine with physical humor that viewers have gotten used to and love about him in a role.
The trailer released begins with Atkinson as Trevor stands in a court before a judge as all his charges are being read out. These charges include all crimes Trevor is found guilty of, which include destruction of priceless artwork and reckless driving. Then, the trailer takes us back to where it all began as Trevor rings the bell of a vast mansion and introduces himself as a housekeeper from House Sitters Deluxe. Trevor’s job is a beautiful chance to prove himself and impress his daughter by taking her on holiday. But everything goes downhill from here as Trevor comes across his enemy, aka a pesky bumblebee.
Annoyed by the bee, Trevor tries every possible thing in his power to get rid of it. And in doing so, he wrecks the beautiful mansion. Not only this, but he also sustains several injuries by slamming his hand on a piano, hitting his knee with a hammer, and by almost being in a car accident. And when you thought the trailer had ended and the humorous scenes had ended, the judge asks Trevor if he has anything to say, and he says: ‘You see… there was this bee….’
