Someone set fire to the house of a wealthy, prominent family in the small town of Shaker Heights, Ohio.
So begins the first scene of this Hulu original, which presents itself as a mystery, but quickly takes you back to the previous year, when everything started. With only one season and eight incredible, action-packed episodes, Little Fires Everywhere is easy to blow through in a week of binging. However, the content is very heavy and intense, so instead of watching it all at once, you might want to spread it out. I compare it to a rich slice of chocolate cake—it’s delicious but best in small amounts.
Little Fires Everywhere is based on Celeste Ng's book of the same name. Liz Tegelaar is the creator.
