Amazon Prime Video has released a brand new trailer for upcoming rom-com I Want You Back, and it looks as sweet and funny as you'd expect. It's just the antidote, really.

I Want You Back, which was first announced back in February, stars It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia's Charlie Day and Parks and Recreation's Jenny Slate as two 30-somethings who lean on each other as they get over being dumped.

The Good Place's Manny Jacinto, Jane the Virgin's Gina Rodriguez, Scott Eastwood, and Clark Backo also star in the comedy, which is expected to premiere just in time for Valentine's Day next year.

Directed by Jason Orley, I Want You Back is written by This is Us showrunners Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger, who also wrote Love, Simon, so the romantic credentials are strong.

The movie's official synopsis teases: "Peter (Charlie Day) and Emma (Jenny Slate) thought they were on the precipice of life's biggest moments – marriage, kids, and houses in the suburbs – until their respective partners dumped them.

"Horrified to learn that the loves of their lives have already moved on, Peter and Emma hatch a hilarious plan to win back their exes with unexpected results."

While the trailer for I Want You Back appears to set up a pretty predictable conclusion for its leads, rest assured we'll be kicking back for a warm and fuzzy hit when it arrives.

Elsewhere, Manny Jacinto's Good Place co-star Kristen Bell recently joined upcoming Netflix series The Woman in the House Across the Street from the Girl in the Window.

Described as a dark comedy thriller, the show follows Bell's heartbroken Anna, who spends every evening staring out of her front room window and necking a glass – or two – of wine.

I Want You Back will premiere on Amazon Prime Video on February 11, 2022.
