Plot Synopsis

Created by Kurt Smeaton, CHILDREN RUIN EVERYTHING is a half-hour comedy series that is about living with the worst roommates of all: young children. Astrid and James struggle to find a balance between being 'Mom and Dad' to two kids and being who they were before offspring. The series explores the hilarious and varied ways kids can tear down your life and, if you're lucky, replace it with something you have to admit is pretty okay, too. CHILDREN RUIN EVERYTHING made its U.S. debut on Friday, May 13, 2022, as Roku Channel released the entire eight-episode first season.
Season 2 of CHILDREN RUIN EVERYTHING made its U.S. debut on Friday, February 3, 2023 on Roku Channel, as the streaming service released all eight episodes of the new season. Astrid and James continue to raise their young children while struggling to hold onto their pre-parental identities. In the midst of all the hilarious and creative ways that kids can alter plans, annihilate goals and dreams, and force parents to re-invent their lives, it turns out that maybe things are kind of okay! Nowhere near as effortless as that kid-free life -- but still kind of nice.
