Suspicion, a new thriller series about five people accused of kidnapping a child, arrived on Apple TV+ on Friday 4 February.
The series stars Uma Thurman as American businesswoman and media mogul Katherine Newman, and Kunal Nayyar and Elizabeth Henstridge among the five people accused of kidnapping her son.
Here is everything you need to know about Suspicion.
What is it about?
The series follows a group of five people accused of kidnapping the child of an influential businesswoman – they go on the run to evade capture and to clear their own names, but become increasingly suspicious of one another as the series goes on.
Suspicion is an adaptation of the Israeli series False Flag, which aired in 2015.
Who is in the cast?
Uma Thurman stars as Katherine Newman, the mother of the kidnapped child. You’ll recognise Thurman from films like Kill Bill and Gattaca. Thurman has previously starred in television drama The Slap, and can next be seen in true crime series Super Pumped, where she’ll play Ariana Huffington (founder of website the Huffington Post).
Kunal Nayyar stars as Aadesh Chopra, one of the accused. You’ll recognise Nayyar as Raj from The Big Bang Theory, a role he played for over a decade, but you might also know him from a recent dramatic turn in Netflix’s Criminal.
Elizabeth Henstridge (Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD), Noah Emmerich (The Americans), Georgina Campbell (Broadchurch), Elyes Gabel (Casualty), and Angel Coulby (Merlin) also star. Lydia West (It’s A Sin) and Mandip Gill (Doctor Who) appear in supporting roles also.
The series was written and executive produced by Rob Williams, who recently scripted prison drama Screw for Channel 4.
Is there a trailer?
Yes there is, and you can see it right here.
Where was the series filmed?
Suspicion began filming in March 2020, and was then heavily delayed for obvious reasons.
Most of the filming took place in the UK, in particular in Brixham (a small town outside Devon), but a number of scenes were also filmed in and around New York City.
The series finished filming in May 2021.
When is it on and how can I watch it?
The first two episodes will be released on Apple TV+ on Friday 4 February 2022.
The remaining six episodes – the series is eight episodes in total – will be released weekly thereafter.
Why should I watch it?
It looks for all the world like your typical, reliable BBC thriller, just with an absolutely massive casting budget – if that sounds interesting to you, it’s probably worth checking this out.
