Check out the teaser for Freeform’s four-part, two-night rom-com Love in the Time of Corona.

After quietly separating months earlier, Paul and Sarah reluctantly decide to quarantine together when their daughter, Sophie, returns home from college. But when Sophie’s high school sweetheart suddenly breaks up with her, Paul and Sarah struggle to continue their “happy couple” ruse for their daughter’s sake.
