Cape Town – Netflix is gifting the world with a six-episode series that centres on Gwyneth Paltrow's lifestyle brand, goop.

A trailer for the new show was released on Monday along with a poster that got a lot of people talking on social media because of its vivid imagery.

The full series drop on 24 January on the ever-growing platform. According to Rolling Stone, The Goop Lab will be hosted by Gwyneth and Goop Chief Content Officer Elise Loehnen.

According to the official synopsis says the series will be "guiding the deeply inquisitive viewer in an exploration of boundary-pushing wellness topics, including psychedelics, cold therapy, female pleasure, anti-ageing, energy healing and psychics."


The brand is famous for trying and promoting unusual practices and goop has even landed in legal hot water because of it.

According to E! News, back in 2018, the company was taken to court over their claim that yoni eggs could "balance hormones, regulate menstrual cycles, prevent uterine prolapse, and increase bladder control," among other benefits.

However, the eggs – which are meant to be inserted into the vagina - did not have the results the company reported.

The lifestyle brand was then forced to pay $145 000 (over R2 million) in civil penalties and according to court documents were "barred from making any claims regarding the efficacy of its products without possessing competent and reliable scientific evidence, and from manufacturing or selling any misbranded, unapproved, or falsely-advertised medical devices."
