The Change’s first season premieres on Channel 4 on June 2, 2023, and runs until July 7, 2023.

The Change Storyline

Following Linda, a lady in her fifties who is thrust into menopause, “The Change” depicts her dramatic experience. As a result of the emotional and mental shifts that come with middle age, Linda decides to embark on a journey to rediscover who she is.

Linda uproots her life and settles into a trailer in the beautiful Forest of Dean. Here, amid the peaceful splendor of nature, she hopes to find solace and an opportunity to rediscover herself. As Linda faces the challenges and reaps the benefits of menopause, she encounters a cast of colorful and fascinating characters that shape her experience along the way.

Over the span of the show’s six episodes, we see Linda’s process of coming into her own unfolding. From her search for a time capsule she buried as a child to her participation in the organizing of the annual town meeting and the Eel Festival, Linda’s experiences provide humor, insight, and unexpected turns.

Similarly, Linda’s connections with others will evolve as a result. Siobhan, Linda’s sister, visits her with ill will because of how much time Linda is spending away from the family. Linda experiences challenges and troubles with keeping her secrets, but she finds friends in Joy and the Eel sisters, who become her allies.

The Change Season 2 Plot

What this means for the upcoming second season is anyone’s guess. But Linda and the villagers will probably be the focus once again. As a result, we expect it to pick up right where the last episode left off. The local eel festival was where Steve unexpectedly ran into his future bride. Would he be able to fit in socially as well?

Intriguing new individuals might be introduced in Season 2 to further investigate themes of midlife shifts, family interactions, and individual growth. The show might maintain its balance between comedic relief and dramatic tension by including both humorous and poignant moments of self-reflection.

The Change Season 1 Review

Christie, the show’s brilliant creator, and actress, plays Linda, a 50-year-old mother and homemaker who believes she has dementia with early onset after forgetting the name of a shoe. Menopause, she learns at the doctor’s office, is to blame for her memory loss.

After enduring her terrible 50th birthday party, at which her husband and his skill for catching a hot dog in his mouth grant him a greater spotlight than she gets, Linda determines to head out on the road on her old Triumph motorcycle for a journey of discovery of oneself inspired by the physical change in her body.

Even though the program has a feminist edge, anyone who has experienced menopause will be able to relate to it. Those who have grown bored with daily life and sought to give their lives deeper purpose may also enjoy this book. While similar comedies have been made before (such as the recent American show Life & Beth about another woman’s (Amy Schumer’s) attempts at self-reflection), this one succeeds thanks to its eccentric British humor and Christie’s talented playing.
