We’re going to try to end the week with some semi-good news because we know it’s typically pretty doom and gloom.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy used to be an actor. In fact, many people think he managed to be elected president because he was so good in his TV comedy, “Servant of the People.”

Well, now audiences all around the world can see him be a good president on the news and Netflix. The streaming company just said it was bringing the show back so that everyone can see the president play the president before he was actually the president.

Key comments:

“You asked and it’s back!” Netflix tweeted. “Servant of the People is once again available on Netflix in The US. The 2015 satirical comedy series stars Volodymyr Zelenskyy playing a teacher who unexpectedly becomes President after a video of him complaining about corruption suddenly goes viral.”

“Available in the U.S. and very proud of us for carrying this,” tweeted Dexter Mullins, a creative producer at Netflix. “In Europe on other platforms. Give it a watch, folks.”
