HBO Limited Series The Third Day Moves to This Fall
HBO’s six-part limited series The Third Day, starring Academy Award nominees Jude Law and Naomie Harris, is now set to debut this fall. The series was initially scheduled to premiere on Monday, May 11. According to Deadline, the delay is due to the post-production being affected by the production shutdown.
The Third Day is divided into two parts: “Summer” and “Winter.” In “Summer,” one man visits a mysterious island off the British coast and discovers a group of inhabitants intent on preserving their home at any cost. In the second half, aka “Winter,” a strong-willed outsider comes to the island seeking answers — but instead causes a battle to decide its fate.
The miniseries stars Jude Law (The New Pope, The Talented Mr. Ripley) as Sam, Naomie Harris (Moonlight) as Helen, Katherine Waterston (Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them) as Jess, and Freya Allan (The Witcher) as Kail. It will also feature Emmy and Golden nominee Emily Watson (Chernobyl), Paddy Considine (Hot Fuzz, The Outsider) and John Dagleish.
The Third Day is co-written and executive produced by Dennis Kelly, who has already worked with Jude Law on the 2014 disaster film Black Sea. It is directed by Marc Munden and Philippa Lowthorpe with Kit de Wall and Dean O’Loughlin serving as writers. The series is executive-produced by Barrett, Kelly, Dede Gardner, and Jeremy Kleiner. The Third Day is a co-production between Sky and HBO.
