Canadian streaming platform Crave, a Bell Media company, has set a premiere date for We’re All Gonna Die (Even Jay Baruchel), slating the original docuseries to debut on April 30 in both English and French.

Canadian actor Jay Baruchel will host the six-part, half-hour series that takes a tongue-in-cheek look at the apocalypse, examining it through the lenses of science, psychology, pop culture and philosophy.

Each episode covers a different doomsday scenario: an asteroid hitting the Earth, a nuclear catastrophe, a global pandemic, alien invasion, a volcanic cataclysm and a climate apocalypse. The series features interviews with top scientists, activists and experts, and highlights technological innovations and scientific ideas surrounding these potential world-ending events.

“I am very excited for everyone to see this mind-blowing show that we’ve been working on for the past two years,” Baruchel said in a news release. “I’m super-proud of how it all came together. I think audiences will find it educational, funny, and as reassuring as it is utterly horrifying.”

The series is produced by 90th Parallel Productions in association with Crave. It’s written and directed by Victoria Lean, and produced by Lean, Stuart Henderson and Benjamin Travers. Baruchel serves as executive producer, along with Stuart and Gordon Henderson.

The series was first announced in 2019 at Hot Docs.
