The cast is rounded out by Brian Tee (Chicago Med, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows) and Jack Huston (House of Gucci, Fargo).

Expats will have the world premiere screening of its feature-length penultimate episode at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 8.

Set against the vibrant and tumultuous tapestry of 2014 Hong Kong, Expats centers on three American women — Margaret (Nicole Kidman), Hilary (Sarayu Blue), and Mercy (Ji-young Yoo) — whose lives intersect after a sudden family tragedy.

The series interrogates privilege and explores what happens when the line between victimhood and culpability becomes blurred. Brian Tee plays Margaret’s husband, Clarke, and Jack Huston plays Hilary’s husband, David.

Lulu Wang serves as a creator, director, and writer for Expats. Wang also executive produces the series with Daniele Melia for Local Time.

Nicole Kidman serves as an executive producer for the series with Per Saari for Blossom Films (Rabbit Hole, Nine Perfect Strangers), along with Alice Bell (The Beautiful Lie, The Slap), who was the first writer onboarded to the series.
