Little Fires Everywhere cheat sheet

Little Fires Everywhere is an eight episode series that airs on Thursdays on Hulu. The first three episodes came out on Wednesday, March 18.

Set in 1997 in the wealthy Cleveland suburb of Shaker Heights in Ohio, the series centers on two very different families and an unraveling mystery. As with the book, the show begins with a house on fire, suspected to have been the result of arson. The house belongs to the Richardsons, an upper-middle-class family, who on the surface appear to have a perfect life, with Witherspoon playing the matriarch Elena.

Washington plays Mia, a single mum and a photographer who’s lived a transient lifestyle throughout her daughter’s childhood, who becomes a tenant in a smaller home that Elena owns. The connection between the families deepens as their children  become friends, but things become complex as the secrets surrounding the fire begin to emerge.

It may have just aired, but already Little Fires Everywhere is one of the most discussed Hulu shows.

With that in mind, here's how to watch Little Fires Everywhere and stream the new series online from all corners of the globe.
