Netflix viewers have been left heartbroken after a new true drama series released on the streaming platform.
From Scratch released last month and is being applauded by fans and critics, with it scoring an impressive 92 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. Watch the trailer below:
The drama series is based on Tembi Locke’s book, From Scratch: A Memoir of Love, Sicily, and Finding Home.
The pair quickly fall in love and start a life together in Los Angeles, but they soon face a devastating tragedy.
Avatar star Saldana is also an executive producer on the show alongside Reese Witherspoon, Lauren Levy Neustadter, Tembi Locke, Attica Locke, Richard Abate, Jermaine Johnson, Will Rowbotham, and Nzingha Stewart.
The series is split up into eight episodes, which are all available to watch in one go.
Netflix viewers have been giving their reaction to the series, with it leaving many emotionally drained.
One person on Twitter said: "I’m watching #fromscratch on Netflix and I went from wanting to eat pasta, to dance in a parking lot, to be happy for a wedding I wasn’t invited to and to visit Sicily. I am ugly crying rn
"This is a true love story like I haven’t seen on tv for a long time and I wasn’t ready."
A second added: "You people watching From Scratch how many boxes of tissue have you been through?"
And a third said: "I thought From Scratch on Netflix was gonna be some easy, light, romcom watch and now I’m absolutely ruined on my couch sobbing over this love story that I also just found out is BASED ON A TRUE STORY."
Critics have also been touched by the new drama, with many praising From Scratch's adaption of a true story.
Meghan O'Keefe at the Decider said: "Zoe Saldana and Danielle Deadwyler elevate the material beyond being Hallmark Channel fluff... From Scratch is a dreamy, steamy, tearjerker that is the epitome of escapism."
TV Guide's review also praised the series, Maggie Fremont's said: "You can easily imagine a version of this story that dials up the emotional manipulation by hammering home the sadness without any type of catharsis, but From Scratch wisely never hesitates to cut the sadness with something funny or sweet or awkward."
And finally, Sherin Nicole's review for Geek Girl Riot read: "Protect your chest because your heart is about to get snatched."
Get those tissues ready because From Scratch is available to stream on Netflix right now.
