Amazon Prime Video has confirmed the release date for How to Date Billy Walsh, its upcoming romcom starring Heartstopper's Sebastian Croft and Bridgerton's Charithra Chandran.


The film was originally meant to land on the streamer back in September 2023, but the release date was pushed back indefinitely in August.

In a recently released statement, however, Prime Video has confirmed that How to Date Billy Walsh will land on Friday 5th April 2024.

A recently released trailer also teases what's in store for Croft's Archie, who has been in love with his best friend Amelia (Chandran) for as long as he can remember.

Just before he musters up the courage to confess his feelings, however, she reveals she's fallen for American transfer student Billy Walsh (Cobra Kai's Tanner Buchanan). Cue all sorts of shenanigans as Archie attempts to keep the pair apart.

Speaking of playing Archie in the Amazon original, he said: "I'm thrilled that audiences will get to see How to Date Billy Walsh. The process of bringing this uniquely British romcom to life has been an incredible journey, and I'm eager to see it bring the same level of joy into people's homes that we experienced whilst making the movie."
