Netflix has announced the premiere date for Kerry Washington’s American Son.

It was announced earlier this year that the Broadway hit play would be adapted for television with Kerry Washington and Stephen Pasquale set to reprise their roles.

Washington previously discussed the adaptation during an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, detailing her role as Kendra and the play’s gut-wrenching exploration of family and identity as an interracial couple searches for their missing son in a Florida police station.

Washington’s co-stars Jeremy Jordan and Eugene Lee will reprise their roles alongside the actress.

Back in January, Cindy Holland, Netflix’s Vice President of Original Content, said in a statement, “We are honored to work with Kerry Washington, [director] Kenny Leon, [writer] Christopher Demos-Brown and the entire cast to bring this story from the Broadway stage to our members around the world.”

American Son will make its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival before arriving November 1 on Netflix.
