While Aziz Ansari's Master of None kept everyone distracted from the pressures of dating during the holidays, and alternatively, the more arduous struggle of being single during the holidays, Judd Apatow's new sitcom is here to rescue us from Valentine's Day. Love, a ten-episode comedy series starring Paul Rust (sorry, not Rudd) and Gillian Jacobs, is coming to Netflix on February 19th. This ensures two important things: that those in relationships have something romantic to binge-watch, and that those who are single still get a belated Valentine's Day present.

According to Entertainment Weekly, the show centers around Gus (Rust), a "nice guy who moves into a trendy apartment complex bustling with college kids following the departure of his cheating girlfriend." He eventually meets Mickey (Jacobs), a "wild child who hates her job." What happens next? It's all in the title.

While the teaser trailer doesn't actually show its stars in character, it does come with a handy list of New Year's resolutions to consider if you haven't already chosen one, including "Be less insane," "Have sext more," and "Eat gluten again." Watch it below.
