There's a brand-new series on Netflix that's leaving viewers 'crying themselves to sleep' after watching it.

The 'devastating' new drama only dropped on the streaming platform yesterday (8 February), but it's clear viewers couldn't wait to binge-watch the entire thing in one go, with many rushing to social media to share their praise.

The shows sees university students Dex and Emma meet on the night of their graduation.

There's a clear spark but they don't end up getting together - and end up lowkey regretting that decision for 20 years.

The Netflix limited series tells the decades-spanning love story of protagonists Dex, portrayed White Lotus star Leo Woodall, and Emma, played by This is Going to Hurt's Ambika Mod, as we catch up with them on the same day every year.

If this sounds a little familiar to you, it's because it's another adaptation of David Nicholls' 2009 worldwide bestselling novel One Day, which was originally adapted into the 2011 feature film starring Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess.

This time around, it's been reimagined as a 14-episode British series.

Each episode checks in on the couple on 15 July, St. Swithin's Day - with posh Dex and the more down-to-earth Emma going on to have very different lives.

Strap in for literal years of will-they-won't-they drama, as the pair insist they're just friends, while everyone around them knows this is absolutely not the case.

It seems viewers are experiencing that exact same heartbreak as Emma and Dex go through, with many taking to X, formerly Twitter, to share their reactions.

One viewer praised: "I'm only halfway through episode one of One Day but Leo Woodall and Ambika Mod have insane chemistry."

"This adaptation is so good already I feel sick," revealed a second, while a third chimed in: "This is definitely a must watch!!"

A fourth joked: "I believe One Day on Netflix was made for me and uploaded today for me to watch only, as a form of therapy. It’s a private screening."

"THE ENDING?? Who put rom-com under One Day are you actually kidding?" admitted another Netflix viewer. "Crying myself to sleep what the actual hell."

A final Twitter user echoed: "Who decided that One Day needed a remake?? The Anne Hathaway movie wasn't devastating enough??"

One Day is currently available to stream on Netflix.
