‘Shrinking’ Episode Guide: How Many Episodes in Harrison Ford’s Apple TV+ Series?

What happens when Bill Lawrence, Brett Goldstein, and Jason Segel team up to create a comedy about grief? We get one of 2023’s best shows so far, plus the gift of watching legendary actor Harrison Ford flex his comedic chops.

Apple TV+’s Shrinking, a new half-hour comedy created, written, and executive produced by the talented trio, follows Jimmy (Segel), a therapist and father who’s grieving the death of his wife and struggling to get by. Despite disapproval from fellow therapists and friends Paul (Ford) and Gabby (Jessica Williams), Jimmy turns to radical therapy techniques to help his clients. And though the pivot initially seems promising, assuming the role of “psychological vigilante” quickly proves to be harder than it sounds.

With the same heart as another Apple TV+ hit, Ted LassoShrinking is a charming, hilarious, moving show about managing grief, laughing through the pain, and being there for one another through life’s highs and lows.
