Moms, you’re invited to join the cast of the brand new Netflix series “The Moms,” premiering on Netflix this summer.
While the series is set to follow the adventures of a new family, we’re excited to finally get to see the original cast members as they explore the world and come face-to-face with their inner-most secrets.
To get you started, we caught up with some of the original stars of the series, Dan Stevens (Molly, Glee), Danielle Staub, Jillian Bell, and Kristen Bell.
We also talked to the show’s creator, Ryan Murphy, about the inspiration behind the series and how his family and friends are inspired to be part of it.

Molly: It’s different.
