Fans of Rowan Atkinson’s new Netflix sitcom are delighted to see Mr. Bean return.
Man vs Bee, a ten-episode comedy from the steamy giant, stars Atkinson as Trevor, a figure that fans immediately compared to Mr. Bean, the star’s best-known role as Mr. Bean.
Rowan Atkinson’s latest comedic offering prompted one Twitter user to write, “Nobody does physical comedy quite like Rowan Atkinson. There isn’t much comedy on Netflix right now, but a return of MR Bean in all its splendor is nice.
For another, the experience of watching their 13-year-old son go through the motions of MR Bean was “very entertaining.”
In addition, a third-social media user wrote: “Watching [Man vs Bee] primarily for Rowan Atkinson. “MR Bean vibes.”
For whatever reason, I haven’t laughed so hard in a long time.” MR Bean is just awe-inspiring. An excellent stress reliever,” commented one, while another said, “Man vs. Bee is great. bring back that old MR Bean sensation.”
“Clumsy parent Trevor attempts to get the best out of a wily bee while lounging in a luxurious mansion – but he only causes more turmoil,” states the official Netflix description of human versus bee.
In the show’s trailer, Trevor can be seen breaking ornaments, reckless driving, and even employing a flamethrower in his efforts to get rid of the annoying bug.
You can see why many were nostalgic for MR Bean’s human vs. bee show.
Besides Jing Lusi (Crazy Rich Asians) and Notting hill actor Julian Rhind-Tutt as the Homeowner, Claudie Blakely (Pride and Prejudice) plays Trevor’s ex-girlfriend, and Greg Mchugh (Home Improvement) plays the home gardener, the show was created by Atkinson himself on the side of Johnny English author William Davies.

Additionally, the episode features judges Chizzy Akudolo and Aysha Kala in their roles as investigators.
There is little doubt that Trevor and Mr. Bean share certain similarities, but fans of the role need not hold their breath for a Mr. Bean revival anytime soon, since actor Rowan Atkinson admitted last year that he “doesn’t love” performing the part.
I don’t love playing him,” he said, according to the Guardian. Being a leader may be a stressful position. To put it mildly, I’m looking forward to the conclusion of it. ”
