Netflix’s Partner Track is a new legal series with plenty of drama and an edgy storyline to keep viewers engrossed throughout. Check out the details in my parents guide review.
Netflix’s Partner Track drops on the streaming service today, August 26th. The series consists of 10-episodes and is based on the popular Helen Wan novel of the same name. It stars Arden Cho, who plays motivated lawyer Ingrid Yun, who is determined to become a partner at her firm. While the show feels much like a courtroom drama, there is enough comedy mixed in to categorize this one as a legal rom-com series. Check out the details in my parents guide review.

Partner Track Age Appropriate Parents Guide
Let’s take a look at what parents need to know before letting their kids watch Netflix’s Partner Track.
Language: Partner Track contains strong language, with profanity used throughout. Lookout words include: f*ck, sh*t, b*tch, a**h*le, g-d d*mn, and more.
Mature Content: The series covers adult topics that surround racism, sexism, and more. There are multiple scenes that show characters engaging in sexual acts and discussing sexual content. Characters are also shown consuming alcohol.
Netflix’s Partner Track is a legal drop, with a bit of the rom-com genre mixed in. It sort of feels like it could be played on Prime Time, along with shows like Law & Order or Suits. It centers around a law firm that is pretty much a boys’ club, with the lead character, Ingrid, being an Asian female who wants to become a partner at the firm. While she takes the lead role, the series also focuses in on the others at the firm and her group of friends, all dealing with some sort of drama of their own, whether it be drama in the romance department or the pressures at the firm. These side plots and new challenges that continually rise make for a constant stream of new and fresh content over the span of the season to keep viewers intrigued.
Netflix’s Partner Track was perfectly cast, with an interesting ensemble of characters to appeal to all viewers. Arden Cho, who plays lead character Ingrid, gives a very authentic performance of the tough, smart, and quick-witted lawyer who wears her snark on her sleeve. Her love interests, Jeff Murphy (Dominic Sherwood), as well as Nick Laren (Rob Heaps), each have great chemistry with Cho, as friends, lovers, and workplace rivals. Then there are Ingrid’s workplace besties, Rachel Friedman (Alexandra Turshen) and Tyler Robinson (Bradley Gibson), who are also both trying to make partners, but have their own enlightenment through the course of the show.
Now let me warn some of you, while I enjoyed Netflix’s Partner Track, this is not a show to binge, it will become too overwhelming. Imagine yourself binging an entire season of Law & Order. It sounds like a chore, right? While each new episode released once a week is a delight, watching this sort of legal drama all in one sitting with back-to-back episodes is just too much. It is a good series, but to truly enjoy it, take your time watching it. Watch the episode and let it settle, otherwise your experience with Partner Track will go off the rails.
