Hulu’s horror series “Into the Dark” has released three fantastic episode so far. The first details have just arrived for the fourth episode “New Year, New You“.
The episode marks a big moment for Blumhouse. “New Year, New You” features Blumhouse’s first (ever) female director, Sophia Takal (Always Shine, Green, V/H/S).
Back in October Jason Blum landed in hot water after he was asked by Polygon why Blumhouse had never featured a female director. No matter what, we’re just glad that a female filmmaker has finally been given the opportunity to see their vision come to life through Blumhouse.

In the holiday-themed episode, “A group of friends from high school reconnects for a special New Year’s Eve girls night but as they begin to rehash old memories many of the gripes they’ve been harboring manifest in murderous ways.”
Suki Waterhouse (The Bad Batch), Carly Chaikin (“Mr. Robot”), Kirby Howell-Baptiste (“Killing Eve”, “Barry”), and Melissa Bergland (“Winners & Losers”) star.

New Year, New You” will premiere exclusively on Hulu’s “Into The Dark” On December 28th.
