Welp. Lindsay Lohan has returned to acting (with her newly acquired accent? Only time will tell). And none of us in the U.S. of A can watch her new show because everything is terrible and unfair in this world.
It’s been three years since Lohan appeared on a any size screen — her last acting credit was a guest appearance on an episode of 2 Broke Girls. Before that, she was in the movie The Canyons, but that was released almost four years ago now. Suffice it to say, we are overdue for some LiLo on our screens.
Lohan announced her involvement in the British show Sick Note with a photo taken on set and posted to Instagram. In the pic, she’s posing alongside her co-stars Rupert Grint and Nick Frost.
And can we just point out how fab her hair looks? That asymmetrical bob is lit.
The show, which airs on Sky 1 and is therefore unavailable to Americans (boo!) follows Daniel Glass (Grint), a compulsive liar stuck in a dead-end job whose relationship is falling apart. He also has to deal with his overbearing boss (Don Johnson). Lohan is joining in the show’s second season as Johnson’s daughter. The first season of the show airs beginning this fall, while the second season is currently filming.
In the first season, Grint’s character is diagnosed with a terminal illness that turns out to be nothing, but his doctor encourages him to lie to friends, family and colleagues about his disease and the lie (obviously) spirals hilariously out of control — 10/10 would watch. It’s just not fair that the U.S. can’t watch this. Netflix, where you at?
