Apple today announced the renewal of a new series debuting on Apple TV+ this spring, “Home Before Dark.” The announcement came during the Television Critics’ Association Winter press tour. The dramatic mystery series is inspired by the reporting of young investigative journalist Hilde Lysiak, and directed and executive produced by Jon M. Chu. Paramount Television and Anonymous content are attached as producers.
“Home Before Dark” will premiere its first three episodes Friday, April 3, exclusively on Apple TV+, and new episodes will premiere weekly every Friay.
“Home Before Dark” follows a young girl who moves from Brooklyn to the small lakeside town her father left behind. While there, her dogged pursuit of the truth leads her to unearth a cold case that everyone in town, including her own father, tried hard to bury.
“Home Before Dark” stars Brooklynn Prince, Jim Sturgess, Adrian Hough, Jibrail Nantambu, Deric McCabe and Joelle Carter. The series is created and executive produced by showrunners Dana Fox and Dara Resnik; written and executive produced by Russel Friend and Garrett Lerner; and executive produced by Joy Gorman Wettels, Rosemary Rodriguez and Sharlene Martin.
The series joins a list of recently renewed Apple Originals set for a second season, including the critically acclaimed “Little America,” “Dickinson,” “See,” “Servant” and “For All Mankind.”
