STARZ announced today the debut of the exclusive limited series The Gloaming, premiering on Sunday, March 21 on STARZ across all platforms, as well on STARZ at 9PM ET/PT. 

Additionally, the network unveiled the official trailer as well as the original key art for the eight episode series.

When a woman is found brutally killed, the clues surrounding her death connect to murders both past and present. Political corruption and shady business dealings are soon entwined with sinister crimes and occult practices. At the center of this web are two detectives, Molly McGee (played by Emma Booth, “Once Upon a Time”) and Alex O’Connell (played by Ewen Leslie, “Top of the Lake”) who share a tragic past. In a harrowing journey to find the truth, their fate is coerced by the ghosts of the unsettled dead that linger in the liminal space between life and death — known as The Gloaming.

Additionally, the series stars Martin Henderson (“Grey’s Anatomy”) as Gareth McAvaney, Aaron Pedersen (“Mystery Road”) as Inspector Lewis Grimshaw, Rena Owen (“The Orville”) as Grace Cochrane, Josephine Blazier (True History of the Kelley Gang) as Lily Broomhall, and Matt Testro (“Nowhere Boys”) as Freddie Hopkins. 

Written and created by Victoria Madden (“The Kettering Incident”), who also serves as showrunner, “The Gloaming” is a co-production with Madden’s Sweet Potato Films and John Molloy’s (“Molly,” Boys in the Trees) 2 Johns Productions and ABC Signature, a division of Disney Television Studios, and premiered on Stan Australia in 2020. 

Speaking about STARZ picking up The Gloaming, Madden said: “I am thrilled that The Gloaming has found a perfect home at STARZ in the US with their unique and bold content. We can’t wait to share it with audiences over there.”

The series features a line-up of internationally renowned, Australian directorial talent including Greg McLean (Wolf Creek, Jungle), who also serves as an executive producer, as well as Michael Rymer (“Hannibal,” “Battlestar Galactica,” “American Horror Story”) and Sian Davies (“Reef Break,” “Wentworth”). Keli Lee, Nick Forward, Jon Adgemis, and Michael Gudinski also serve as executive producers, with John Molloy and Fiona McConaghy as producers. 

Filmed in Australia, funding was provided in part by Screen Australia, Screen Tasmania and Film Victoria. The Gloaming was filmed entirely in locations across Tasmania, Australia.
