Gwyneth Paltrow is preparing to make her small screen return for new Netflix series, The Politician.

The actress took to Instagram to announce the news, admitting that only her television writer husband, Brad Falchuk, could convince her to step in front of the camera once more.

“Only @bradfalchuk and his ingenious writing could get me back to the original day job. The Politician starts on @netflix September 27 (my birthday!),” she wrote.

The news comes after Paltrow revealed in a recent interview that she was simply “masquerading as an actor” before founding lifestyle company, Goop.

But the 46-year-old will be in good company with the likes of Hollywood heavyweight Bette Midler, American Horror Story‘s Jessica Lange and Bohemian Rhapsody star Lucy Boynton already on board.

If that isn’t enough A-list names to justify a Netflix binge, Ben Platt, Zoey Deutch, Laura Dreyfuss and Rahne Jones have also signed up as regular cast members.

The official synopsis reads: “Payton Hobart (Platt), a wealthy student from Santa Barbara, California, has known since age seven that he’s going to be President of the United States. But first he’ll have to navigate the most treacherous political landscape of all: Saint Sebastian High School.”

“To get elected Student Body President, secure a spot at Harvard, and stay on his singular path to success, Payton will have to outsmart his ruthless classmates without sacrificing his own morality and carefully crafted image.”

The dark comedy will make its Netflix debut in early September 2019 – a binge-worthy television series to get stuck into when summer draws to a close.
