Hindsight is an American comedy-drama television series that premiered on VH1 on January 7, 2015 and ended on March 11, 2015. The series was created by Emily Fox and stars Laura Ramsey in the lead role of Becca Brady, who, while wrestling with doubts on the eve of her second wedding, finds herself sent back to 1995. Specifically, Becca finds that she has time traveled to the day of her first wedding, a marriage that ultimately ended in divorce. Upon her arrival in 1995, Becca reunites with her best friend Lolly (from whom she has become estranged in present day), breaks off her engagement to her first husband, and resolves to use her trip back in time to correct what she sees as personal and professional mistakes.
The show also featured a companion/spin-off web series during its run called Planet Sebastian. The companion series played as a public access style talk show hosted by Sebastian Wexler, a character featured on "Hindsight." Episodes of "Planet Sebastian" streamed on the VH1 website.
On March 16, 2015, VH1 announced that the show has been renewed for a second season, but after a change in leadership at VH1 Hindsight was ultimately cancelled in August 2015.

Reviews of the series seem positive in general. Variety called the show “breezy” with an intriguing premise while also pointing out that, like many time travel stories, the narrative doesn’t necessarily stand up to scrutiny. Rolling Stone praised the relationship between Becca and Lolly while noting the show’s use of ‘90s pop culture archetypes to invoke nostalgia. Vulture called the show’s vision “perfect,” while The New York Times called the show "clever, affecting and sly" and a "credible period dramedy, somewhere between Beverly Hills, 90210 and Friends, and an armchair rumination on destiny and will."
Music, particularly music from the ‘90s, is used heavily in the series and as a significant part of the network's promotion of the show. Music used during the series includes:
In Germany, the Disney Channel will broadcast the series. An exact broadcast date is not known.
In Southeast Asia, the series is being aired on cable and satellite channel Star World since August 2016.
