Who doesn’t love something created by Ryan Murphy? If you need a little refresher on who Ryan Murphy is, or about his work, we can help you with that. Ryan Murphy is an American television writer who is best known for his work on American Horror Story and Glee. He has also worked on shows like Hollywood, Scream Queens, and The Politician. So, there’s no doubt that his most recent show, The Watcher, will be loved by his fans and beyond.
The Watcher is a Netflix original which will narrate the events based on a true story in a fictional fashion. This show will be full of stalking, manipulation, scandal and everything in between. The perfect recipe for a Netflix series. Here’s everything you need to know about The Watcher before streaming it on Netflix:
The series will be based on this story featured on The Cut. It follows a couple who move into their dream home, but their happy days soon turn into a nightmare when they start receiving letters from someone who calls themselves The Watcher. It is a mysterious stalker whose intentions were far from pure and thus began the saga of harassment and threat inflicted upon the family that only just moved into their new home.
Originally, when this story was released, Netflix acquired the rights and had different plans for it. However, Ian Brennan and Ryan Murphy had different ideas for it. Nevertheless, this series will be full of drama and eeriness as we follow a family into a living nightmare.
Any Ryan Murphy project has a brilliant cast. We’ve seen some of the best actors and actresses in Hollywood feature in his projects, and so our hopes for The Watcher are pretty high too. Here is the official list of the cast of The Watcher:
Naomi Watts as Nora Brannock
Bobby Cannavale as Dean Brannock
Luke David Blumm as Carter Brannock
Jennifer Coolidge as Karen Calhoun
Mia Farrow as Pearl
Terry Kinney as Jasper
Noma Dumezweni as Theodora
These might be the majority of the cast, however, some more supporting characters will only add more charm to the story. Nonetheless, The Watcher is 100% star-studded and we couldn’t be more excited about it.
Netflix dropped the trailer for The Watcher less than two weeks ago and everyone has been more than thrilled about it so far. The trailer has set the tone for the show already and given the audience a fair idea about what they can look forward to.
We also see a glimpse into the stellar acting that is being performed by the cast as they unravel the mystery. There is a range of emotions in the trailer along with several things happening, which is probably why it was a wise idea to turn this into a series instead of a film.
This is probably the question you are most curious about. The good thing is, you don’t have to wait too long before the release of The Watcher. This series will premiere on the 13th of October. Even though this isn’t a horror series, we do believe that the events escalating in the series are pretty scary. The Watcher will stream on Netflix, who acquired the rights to this story when it came out. All the episodes will be released on the 18th, so you can begin the binge!
According to Netflix, The Watcher will be a limited series. This means that this will be the only season of The Watcher. Since this is based on true events and is limited, our best guess is that the creators will wrap up the entire story in one season and hopefully there will be no loose ends. However, Ryan Murphy is best known for his shows with several seasons, so maybe we won’t close the door entirely on any possibilities.
If you’ve come this far, you already know that the plot and cast of The Watcher are enticing enough for you to stream it when it finally releases. However, if you’re still not convinced, we recommend researching a little more about the true story, and when you see how truly crazy the events are, you will immediately want to see them on your screen. So, happy watching, watchers!
