TORONTO – The romantic comedy webseries from “Shang-Chi” star Simu Liu is coming to CBC Gem later this month.

Liu, who shot to global fame with “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” after appearing on CBC’s “Kim’s Convenience,” co-created “Hello (Again)” with Toronto-based writer Nathalie Younglai.

The duo also co-wrote the first four episodes together. There are nine 10-minute episodes.

Directed by Melanie Chung, the show stars Alex Mallari Jr. as a cook named Jayden, and Rong Fu as an emergency room resident, Avery, whom they met, quickly fell in love and eventually broke up.

Six months later, Jayden finds himself traveling back in time to when he met Avery, when he must either correct his past mistakes and win them back or let history repeat itself.

The 100 Dragons production company said the series will premiere on March 25.

Liu, who was next seen hosting the Juno Awards in May, also serves as executive producer alongside Younglai and Mallari Jr.
