Disney has announced that the Australian drama series, “The Clearing” will be coming to Hulu, with a double episode premiere on Wednesday, 24th May 2023, followed by new episodes being released every Wednesday. This brand-new series will also be released outside the United States as a Star Original on Disney+ on the same day.
“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 who’s forced to face the demons from her past in order 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 series stars 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 Clearing” is directed by Jeffrey Walker (“Young Rock,” “Lambs of God”) and Gracie Otto (“Seriously Red,” “Bump,” “Deadloch”). The series is created and written by Elise McCredie (“Stateless”) and Matt Cameron (“Jack Irish”), with co-writer Osamah Sami (“Ali’s Wedding”).
