Ever since Hulu announced it was turning Elizabeth Holmes's story into a series back in 2019, we've been anxiously awaiting new developments. Well, on Dec. 15, we finally got a first look at Amanda Seyfried as the one and only Theranos founder — black turtleneck and all. Kate McKinnon was originally set to play Holmes, but she later dropped out of the project, with Seyfried replacing her in 2021. The show will also star Naveen Andrews as Holmes's business partner and ex-boyfriend Sunny Balwani.

For those unfamiliar with the story, Holmes was on track to become the youngest self-made woman billionaire after she introduced revolutionary technology that could replace traditional blood tests. However, the whole thing turned out to be nothing but a lie. Holmes currently stands trial for two counts of conspiracy to commit wire fraud and nine counts of wire fraud.

Based on ABC's podcast of the same name, The Dropout is set to premiere on March 3, 2022.
