Apple TV+ has released the first trailer for upcoming sitcom Still Up starring The Good Doctor's Antonia Thomas.

The series follows two insomniacs Danny (Craig Roberts) and Lisa (Thomas) who spent all night talking to each other while the rest of the world sleeps.

As the trailer shows, Danny and Lisa are as close as two people can be without dating each other. But it's not long before their purely platonic relationship starts to cause problems with their partners, who they don't share as deep a connection with.

Still Up also stars The Inbetweeners' Blake Harrison, Lois Chimimba, Luke Fetherston and The Mighty Boosh's Rich Fulcher.

The series was co-created and written by Steve Burge and Natalie Walter and directed by John Addis.

Still Up will debut its first three episodes on Apple TV+ on Friday, September 22, with new episodes following every Friday through October 27.

Thomas starred as Claire Browne in The Good Doctor for four seasons, departing the show at the end of season 4 to "explore different creative opportunities".

Speaking about her departure from the series, Thomas told Deadline: "For me, it’s about coming to the point where I think we’ve really run the gamut of different things that Claire can have gone through, and I’m now really excited to explore different creative opportunities.

"For me, as an actress, having versatility and creativity has been something that’s been really, really important. I’ve come from the British system where you play a role, you film it for a couple of months because seasons are only six episodes long, and then you can do something else, and I think after dedicating four years to Claire and her journey and really, really exploring the character, I am just now ready to try something new, ultimately."

Thomas briefly returned as Claire in season 5 of The Good Doctor, starring in two episodes where she assisted with a tumour surgery on a young boy.

Still Up premieres on Apple TV+ on Friday, September 22.
