Disney has announced that it will be delaying the premiere of the upcoming FX limited series, “A Murder at the End of the World”, which is a murder mystery set at the remote and isolated compound of a reclusive billionaire.
The seven-episode limited series was originally announced to premiere on August 29th 2023. However, now the series will be released in November (though no exact date has been revealed). The show is going to be released on Disney’s streaming services around the world, including Hulu in the United States, Star+ in Latin America and on Disney+ around the world.
“A Murder at the End of the World” is a mystery series with a new kind of detective at the helm – a Gen Z amateur sleuth and tech-savvy hacker named “Darby Hart” (Emma Corrin). Darby and eight other guests are invited by a reclusive billionaire (Clive Owen) to participate in a retreat at a remote and dazzling location. When one of the other guests is found dead, Darby must use all of her skills to prove it was murder against a tide of competing interests and before the killer takes another life.
With the writers and actors on strike to get better working conditions, protection against artificial intelligence and better pay, the studios are making changes to their schedules, stretching out the upcoming releases since they are restricted in what new content can be created. Plus if the strikes are hopefully over by November, this will allow the actors to promote the upcoming series.
The series stars Emma Corrin, Clive Owen, Harris Dickinson, Brit Marling, Alice Braga, Joan Chen, Raúl Esparza, Jermaine Fowler, Ryan J. Haddad, Pegah Ferydoni, Javed Khan, Louis Cancelmi, Edoardo Ballerini, Britian Seibert, Christopher Gurr, Kellan Tetlow, Daniel Olson and Neal Huff.
“A Murder at the End of the World” is created and directed by Brit Marling & Zal Batmanglij. Marling and Batmanglij also executive produced alongside Andrea Sperling (Transparent), Melanie Marnich and Nicki Paluga. The seven-episode limited series is produced by FX Productions and was filmed in Iceland, as well as New Jersey and Utah.
