Disney FX’s new limited series, “Class of ‘09,”, is a brand new thriller from Tom Rob Smith, that follows a class of FBI agents set in three distinct points in time who acclimate and grapple with immense changes as the U.S. criminal justice system is altered by artificial intelligence. Spanning multiple decades and told across interweaving timelines, the series examines the nature of justice, humanity and the choices we make that ultimately define our lives and legacy.
The series stars Brian Tyree Henry as “Tayo,” one of the most brilliant and unorthodox agents to ever join the bureau, and Kate Mara as “Poet,” a woman who never imagined joining the world of law enforcement, yet has found herself at the center of its most pivotal transformation. Sepideh Moafi (“Hour”), Brian J. Smith (“Lennix”), Jon Jon Briones (“Gabriel”), Brooke Smith (“Drew”), Jake McDorman (“Murphy”) and Rosalind Eleazar (“Vivienne”) round out the cast.
Vanity Fair has revealed some new images from the upcoming show:
The series took seven months to film, which resulted in the cast leaning greatly on one another—learning the ins and outs of the profession they’d be dedicating themselves to, down to actual high-speed driving tests. Kate Mara revealed:
“We were doing some crazy stuff in empty parking lots in Atlanta. It’s like we went through our own version of Actors Quantico.”
“Class of ’09” is created and executive produced by Tom Rob Smith. Nina Jacobson, Brad Simpson, Zanne Devine, Jessica Levin and Joe Robert Cole also serve as executive producers. FX Productions produce the series.
The new eight-episode series will premiere with two episodes on Wednesday, 10th May 2023, on Hulu in the US, on Star+ in Latin America and on Disney+ under the Star banner in all other territories. New episodes will be released weekly afterwards.
