Back in the Groove: Cast, Trailer and Preview

Three women in their forties being courted by 24 men will star in the film Back in the Groove.

The upcoming Hulu show is different from other dating shows, however, and so is the age gap between the contestants’ males and females.

The youngest and oldest of the men set to appear on the show are both 22 years old. The cast of the play will show how true it is that “age is just a number”.

Introducing the 24 singles that will include Back in the Groove

Three women in their forties will head to the Groove Hotel in Hulu’s Back in the Groove in search of the perfect fling, true love or even something in between.

According to the press release, they have an opportunity to fight societal double standards and break down barriers created for older women on the show.

The upcoming show will give older women a chance to be courted by younger men while contestants do their best to win their favor and stay on the show for the longest time. Women have more power than men, so they can do whatever they want, including the ability to send people home.

Steven, a contestant on Back In The Groove, revealed in a social media promotional video that one of the women is his mother.

Steph is the only one of the three who is female and hails from Miami, so it’s possible the 41-year-old singer – who is preparing for the Hulu show – is Steven’s mom.

Due to my severe maternity issues, older women have always attracted me.
