The new true story-inspired horror series “The Clearing” is set to premiere next week on Hulu, with new episodes airing on Wednesdays.
“The Clearing” is an eight-part psychological thriller based on the best-selling crime thriller ‘In The Clearing’ by author J.P. Pomare, inspired by the darkness of real-life cults in Australia and around the world.
Filmed across Victoria, “The Clearing” is an emotional and psychological thriller that follows the nightmares of a cult and a woman forced to face the demons from her past to stop the kidnapping and coercion of innocent children in the future.
“The series burrows under the skin and inside the mind, blurring the lines between past and present, reality and nightmare, in a truly unnerving way.”
The impressive cast includes Teresa Palmer (“Discovery of Witches”), Miranda Otto (“The Unusual Suspects,” “Homeland”), and Guy Pearce (“Jack Irish,” “Mare of Easttown”) lead a stellar line-up of Australian talent, including Hazem Shammas (“Safe Harbour”), Mark Coles-Smith (“Mystery Road”), Kate Mulvany (“The Twelve”) and rising star Julia Savage (“Blaze,” “Mr. Inbetween”).
The series is directed by Jeffrey Walker (“Young Rock,” “Lambs of God”) and Gracie Otto (“Seriously Red,” “Bump,” “Deadlock”). It was created and written by Elise McCredie (“Stateless”) and Matt Cameron (“Jack Irish”), along with co-writer Osamah Sami (“Ali’s Wedding”).
“The Clearing” premieres with two episodes on Hulu on May 24, 2023, with new episodes airing every Wednesday.
