As of now, there is no release date for “For Your Own Good.” At least not for the adapted TV show, that is – the novel, which serves as source material, has not actually been published yet, but it will be released in bookstores on July 20, 2021.
The series is still in the very early stages of development. Actually, Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that the producers are even still looking for a screenwriter to adapt the novel to the series.
For reference, we can look at Team Downey’s latest project for HBO, “Perry Mason.” Some of the earliest news involving “Perry Mason” was the casting of star Matthew Rhys, who was announced in January 2019, as reported by Variety. The series then premiered about a year and a half later, in July of the following year. Since “For Your Own Good” has not yet cast a lead – and the script has not yet been written – we can assume that we are at least a few months away from hearing casting news. So an approximate estimate of when we might see the release of “For Your Own Good” lands about two years from now. If all goes well, we’ll be watching the new HBO drama in the summer of 2023 – if not hopefully sooner.
