Take Out Hulu - What We Know So Far

Lana Condor is one of the biggest rising stars of her generation, mostly thanks to her breakout role as Lara Jean Covey in "To All the Boys I've Loved Before" and its sequels. She spoke to L'Officiel about what the role meant to her, saying "[To All the Boys] is lifechanging, all the good and the bad that has come has been a huge blessing. And I'm a huge fan of this chronicle, I love Lara Jean and I put so much of my heart into her simply because I believe in her and her story." Since her big break in 2018, Condor has continued to land impressive roles, including Koyomi in "Alita: Battle Angel" and Saya Kuroki in "Deadly Class."

Thankfully, it looks like Condor is going to continue to be booked and busy. Her newest-announced role is in an upcoming Hulu series titled "Take Out," in which she's set to star. The exciting new show is a collaboration between Condor and several other talented names, and is sure to be an action-packed thrill ride. Here's everything we know so far about the release date, other cast members, and plot of "Take Out."

When is the premiere of Take Out?

"Take Out" was just recently announced, and as of now there's no information on a concrete premiere date. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the half-hour action comedy is in early development, and will be a collaboration with 20th Century Television, Imminent Collision, and Hulu.

It definitely sounds like "Take Out" is in its early days, as Condor's statement on the new series alludes to a beginning on the horizon. "I couldn't be more excited to embark on this epic journey with the best partners around, Imminent Collision," Condor said, per THR. "Thank you, Hulu, for your belief in our story, and we can't wait to share it with the world!

Condor is also currently shooting another series that she's starring in — a Netflix comedy titled "Boo, Bitch." Neither series seems to have a premiere date yet, but they'll likely come out at least a few months apart. Either way, we're glad to have multiple Lana Condor-starring projects to enjoy soon.

Who's going to be in Take Out?

So far, it looks like Condor is the only star guaranteed to appear in "Take Out." She's already taken to Twitter to express her enthusiasm for the series, writing "IM CRYING !!! LETS GOOOO GET IT!!! The project perfectly combines my favorite things: FOOD, ACTION, and LOVE and I couldn't be more excited. thank you for letting me live my dream!"

Randall Park, one of the stars of "Fresh off the Boat" and "Always Be My Maybe," is set to executive produce the series as well as co-write the pilot with Michael Golamco ("Please Stand By"). Park, Golamco, and Hieu Ho of Imminent Collision released a joint statement sharing their excitement for the project: "We're so thrilled to be working with Lana on a show that combines our shared passion for romantic comedies and hard-hitting action. Love has the tendency to kick our asses. So we thought, why not a show about love and kicking ass? Thank you to Hulu for seeing this vision and their incredible support" (via THR).

Not much else is known about the cast of "Take Out," but stay tuned for future updates.

What's the plot of Take Out?

"Take Out" stars Condor as Iris, a restaurant worker who fights crime — specifically a dangerous crime syndicate on a mission to take over New York City. In the THR exclusive, it's described as "a genre-bender that takes an irreverent look at the modern-day relationship comedy while also deconstructing one-dimensional tropes from martial arts pop culture." Of course, the title of the series is a bit of a play on words, with the phrase "Take Out" referencing both takeout food and the act of taking people out, butt-kicking style.

Accurate and authentic representation in media is an essential part of the entertainment industry, and "Take Out" will surely be another great example of a fresh take on classic stories. Park spoke to CBC Radio about the importance of Asian-American representation in media, saying, "I've identified with people who don't look like me all my life. So Hollywood is very late, but it's happening now. ... As long we keep pushing and telling these stories, I think it'll prove time and again that there's good business in telling these stories. Hopefully, we'll get to a point where we can have one that fails and is horrible, but that doesn't set us back because there's so many more stories to be told."

This unique representation of Asian-American characters looks like a breath of fresh air for Hulu subscribers.
