Plot Synopsis

WANDERLUST is a one-hour scripted series that explores the relationships of a multi-generational family, revealing how we build and maintain happy relationships and asks if lifelong monogamy is possible -- or even desirable. Joy Richards is a therapist trying to find a way to keep the spark with her husband, Alan, alive after a cycling accident causes her to reassess their relationship. With their sex life on hold, Joy and Alan suddenly find themselves drawn to new people, and both are tempted to make the ultimate indiscretion. With their marriage in crisis Joy comes up with an audacious, unorthodox, but potentially brilliant proposal that will have huge ramifications for the future. Joy and Alan then put their daring plan into action with surprising results, but how will others react when they are told of their actions? Meanwhile, their son Tom shocks best friend Michelle with a peculiar proposal, and a disastrous date for oldest daughter Laura ends with a shocking revelation. Later, Joy and Alan open up about their agreement in the wake of Laura's discovery, and the duo must deal with the repercussions of their choices. WANDERLUST had its U.S. premiere on Friday, October 19, 2018 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT, as Netflix released all six episodes of the series.
