Sky releases full-length trailer for The Third Day
The six-part psychological thriller comes from Utopia creator Dennis Kelly.
Sky has released the full-length trailer for its upcoming limited series The Third Day.
Set on a mysterious island just off the coast of Britain, the creepy clip has echoes of the 1970s horror classic The Wickerman and Ari Aster’s recent hit Midsommar.
The six episodes are divided into two parts titled Summer and Winter respectively.
The first three follow Sam (Jude Law) who, as we see in the clip, arrives on the island haunted by an unspecified personal loss.
At first, it seems like he’s found acceptance and a friendly community but it soon becomes clear its inhabitants are hiding a dark secret with masked figures stalking the island and eerie folk traditions.
The second lot centre on Helen (Naomi Harris) who also comes to the island seeking a new beginning with her family and slowly begins to realise that something sinister is going on.
Chernobyl’s Emily Watson, Paddy Considine, Katherine Watson and Freya Allen round out the rest of the main cast.
The Third Day was created by Dennis Kelly, who’s also responsible for cult series Utopia, with Marc Munden directing the Summer episodes and Philippa Lowthorpe the Winter.
The show is one of the many films and TV series that was affected by the coronavirus pandemic with its release date being pushed back from May 12th to 14th September.
