'Fatherhood': Everything We Know So Far

Kevin Hart stars as a single father in this heartwarming Netflix Fathers' Day film.

You are about to see a different side of Kevin Hart in Netflix's upcoming Fathers' Day film, 'Fatherhood'.

The film follows Kevin Hart as Matthew Logelin, a single father who must figure out how to raise his daughter after losing his wife from childbirth.

'Fatherhood' is expected to bring us a heartwarming tale of a father and daughter relationship, filled with challenges, loss, family, and humor. Here's everything you need to know about 'Fatherhood'.


When Will 'Fatherhood' Release?

Release Date: June 18, 2021

Kevin Hart's upcoming film is set for release two days before Fathers' Day, 18 June 2021.
'Fatherhood' is already one year delayed from its original release date. It was supposed to come out on April 3, 2020, but the schedules shuffled several times until Netflix acquired the film.
Sony decided to ditch the theaters and negotiated a deal with Netflix to release the film due to the Covid-19 lockdowns that shut down most theaters in the US.


What Is The Plot Of 'Fatherhood'?

The movie's plot sounds truly tear-jerking, but we are expecting Kevin Hart to put a lighter tone to it. 'Fatherhood' is based on Matthew Logelin's 2011 memoir, 'Two Kisses for Maddy: A Memoir of Loss & Love.' The memoir depicts Matthew's life as a solo parent, following the tragic and untimely death of his wife Liz, who died a day after giving birth to Maddy.

The film will follow Matthew's journey as he tries his best to raise Maddy, all while dealing with the grief after losing the love of his life.

The trailer for the series has already released, revealing Matthew reaching out to his friends during the lowest points of his life. However, the dark clouds won't seem to disappear no matter how much he tries. Matthew moves to Minnesota in an attempt to start a new life. He eventually finds someone who could open his heart back to love.

'Fatherhood' portrays the everyday challenges of raising a child, including the restless nights and even the mundane everyday tasks that could be too complicated and difficult for first-time parents. 


Who Is Cast In 'Fatherhood'?

Kevin Hart stars as Matthew Logelin, the single-father, and widower, who must find a way to raise his daughter while struggling with emotional pain.

Kevin Hart is backed by a strong supporting cast of comedy veterans. His best friends Jordan and Oscar are played by Lil Rel and Anthony Carrigan, respectively.

You've seen Lil Howery in 'Get Out' as Rod, while Carrigan is known for his role NoHo Frank on HBO's dark comedy, 'Barry.

Joining the stellar cast list is 'Mad About You' star Paul Reiser, who will be playing a character with a similar first name.

To complete the cast list, we have 'Star Trek: First Contact' star Alfre Woodard and 'The Wire' star Frankie Faison as Matthew's mother and father. Meanwhile, DeWanda Wise is also joining the cast list as Swan.
