Trying‘s third season picks up with Nikki (played by BAFTA nominee Esther Smith) and Jason (SAG Award nominee Rafe Spall) waking up as new parents to two children they are still getting to know, Apple TV+ said.

“Thrown straight into the parental deep end, Nikki and Jason’s relationships with each other and their nearest and dearest are tested as they desperately try to navigate the ups and downs of parenting — while struggling to hang onto their kids, and their sanity,” the service noted.

Yes, the trailer appears to show that authorities could take away the youngsters.

In addition to Smith and Spall, season three cast includes Eden Togwell (as Princess), Mickey McAnulty (as Tyler), Oliver Chris (as Freddy), Sian Brooke (as Karen), Darren Boyd (as Scott) and Robyn Cara (as Jen).

Cult of Mac‘s reviewer called season two of the show an “unbearable blast of blandness” that “proves just as exhausting and depressing as its first.”

Show creator Andy Wolton writes and executive produces Trying. The show is directed by Jim O’Hanlon (Catastrophe) and executive produced by O’Hanlon and Josh Cole. BBC Studios produces the series.

Trying‘s eight-episode third season premieres July 22 on Apple TV+. The new season will debut with the first two episodes, followed by new episodes weekly on Fridays through September 2.

The show’s first and second seasons are now streaming on Apple TV+.

To date, Apple Original films, documentaries and series have been honored with 245 wins and 963 award nominations, including this year’s Best Picture Oscar for the film CODA.

Apple TV+ is available by subscription for $4.99 per month with a seven-day free trial.
