This article discusses the Netflix series Partner Track, including the premise, release date, trailer, and cast.
It’s already been another busy month with new releases at Netflix, with massive releases like The Sandman, Trainwreck: Woodstock ‘99, and Royalteen hitting our screens. August isn’t over however and there is still plenty to come.
Ever since Suits hung up its overpriced briefcase, there has been a gap in the market for a high-powered legal drama starring impossibly good-looking people in wonderful clothes. Could Partner Track be about to take the reins?
Netflix series Partner Track premise
Courtesy of our friends at Netflix: Ingrid Yun, a 1st generation Korean American and the first lawyer in her family, experiences the trials and tribulations of excelling at the prestigious (but old school) law firm, Parsons Valentine. With the support of her friends, she battles through workplace challenges to break through the glass ceiling on her path to become partner. But will her drive and ambition leave room for love?
Our opinion of the premise
Partner Track has been described as Sex and The City meets Suits and, honestly, based on the premise, that sounds like a pretty decent description of the Netflix drama. Easily overlooked is how well each of those shows managed to give depth to their characters, making them more than well-dressed, fast-talking mannequins. However, the fact that the central character in Partner Track is 1st generation Korean America and is working to overcome not just gender barriers but also race barriers means we are hopeful that Partner Track might just carve out its own identity.
Netflix Series Partner Track release date
Partner Track will be released on the streaming service on 26th August 2022.

Is there a Trailer?
There sure is! Check it out:
Yep! The trailer pretty much supports the PR messaging. Expect snappy one-liners, beautiful people, great clothes and a healthy dose of bad behaviour. Based on the trailer, I would not expect to find too much in the way of nuanced legal discussion, so if it’s a detailed legal procedural you are looking for, I would maybe keep looking. One gets the impression that the Partner Track team chose the legal profession more for its choice of Manhattan locations and nice suits than they did because of any deep admiration for the rule of law. If, however, you want soapy, glossy drama, then you might just be in luck.
