The Third Day Premiere Date Moved Back to Fall

-

HBO announced today it has pushed back The Third Day premiere date to this fall. The Third Day premiere date was originally set for Monday, May 11. The six-part limited series was created by Dennis Kelly and Felix Barrett.

The limited series stars Jude Law (HBO’s The New Pope) and Naomie Harris (Academy Award nominee for Moonlight), Katherine Waterston (Fantastic Beasts franchise), Emily Watson (Emmy and Golden Globe nominee for HBO’s Chernobyl), and Paddy Considine (HBO’s The Outsider).

The Third Day is a co-production between Sky and HBO. It is the first original drama to be produced by Sky’s new production house, Sky Studios, in conjunction with Plan B Entertainment, the world-renowned immersive theatre company Punchdrunk and writer Dennis Kelly (Utopia, Pulling). Dede Gardner, Jeremy Kleiner, Felix Barrett and Dennis Kelly executive produce.

The six episodes, which are divided into “Summer” and “Winter,” will also be available on HBO On Demand, HBO NOW, HBO GO and partners’ streaming platforms.

Told over the first three episodes, “Summer” stars Jude Law (HBO’s The New Pope) as Sam, a man who is drawn to a mysterious Island off the British coast where he encounters a group of islanders set on preserving their traditions at any cost. “Summer” is written by Dennis Kelly and directed by Marc Munden.

“Winter” unfolds over the latter three episodes and stars Naomie Harris (Academy Award nominee for Moonlight) as Helen, a strong-willed outsider who comes to the island seeking answers, but whose arrival precipitates a fractious battle to decide its fate. “Winter” is written by Kit de Waal, Dean O’Loughlin and Dennis Kelly and directed by Philippa Lowthorpe.

Each story can be experienced separately, with “Summer” and “Winter” working together as a complete series – but all three parts together describe a larger narrative, creating a unique experience for those who seek it.

Co-creator and writer, Dennis Kelly, said: “I wanted to make a series that was unsettling and disturbing but that also spoke to fears that ran deeper than horror. The themes of the Third Day have long been obsessions of mine – it is about loss and hope and how both of those things can distort the mind in surprising and brutal ways.”

Along with Jude Law and Naomie Harris, The Third Day also stars Katherine Waterston (Fantastic Beasts franchise), Emily Watson (Emmy and Golden Globe nominee for HBO’s Chernobyl), and Paddy Considine (HBO’s The Outsider).
