Ali Wong and Steven Yeun have Beef in Netflix and A24’s upcoming dark comedy series.

What happens when you pit two extremely likable performers in a dark comedy where they become mortal enemies? That is what Netflix is hoping to find out with their new dark comedy series Beef starring Ali Wong and Steven Yeun. Both veteran performers of Netflix and outstanding in many rights, this new series follows the aftermath of a road rage incident between two strangers. Their feud increasingly grows and overflows into their personal lives and relationships. Get a glimpse of the feud to come in the first-look images from Netflix.

The first-look images have the palette of an intensely dramatic series. However, they do not really divulge much of the story. From the solo image of Steven Yeun from episode 106, we can assume both his character, Danny Cho, likely stays up late because of the feud. Ali Wong’s character, Amy Lau, has a gun in the first episode, so the situation is guaranteed to escalate. But not much else to decipher from the images. Other than Ali Wong’s Amy Lau has impeccable tastes in art, decor, and fashion. Look at that wool hat!

Sadly that’s all that has been provided about Beef. While I am personally cautiously curious about two Asians getting into a feud that brings one character to feel the need for a gun over a car accident, I am 100% bought in and excited for the series. Ali Wong and Steven Yeun are great performers and A24 has been home to numerous hits. The series really has everything going for it and we can’t wait to find out everything we can about it.

Beef premieres on April 6, 2023, exclusively on Netflix.

Kevin Fenix

Professional Nerd | Amateur Human | Creative/Content Director The best way to describe Kevin Fenix is the kid you never tell what the buttons do in video games so you have a chance to win. Being 6’ 4” and Asian, he never really fit in, so he got comfortable standing out. Not only is it easy to find him in crowds, he dabbles in the culinary arts, does a little stand up and improv, and can honestly say Spider-Man is the Jesus-like influence of his life. Kevin Fenix loves dogs, movies, television, comics, comedy, and to shoot people… with video.
