The exclusive thriller drama is to debut on the 8th of October on Paramount Plus UK. Will you Let The Right One In?
For fans of the original novel and movie, ‘Let The Right One In’ is a classic. A chilling tale of a man and his daughter, who was turned into a Vampire ten years previously, it struck a chord around the world. The U.S remake, ‘Let Me In’, directed by Matt Reeves stuck rather faithfully to the original but was accused of being derivative to it.
However, Paramount Plus has adapted the story and turned it into a 10-part drama series. The series, also named ‘Let The Right One In’ stars Demian Bichir in the lead role. Inspired by the original novel and film, the show is heading our way in October. We have been granted our first look at the series. Grab some garlic as we check it out:
Paramount+ in the UK will debut its new Paramount+ Exclusive thriller drama LET THE RIGHT ONE IN for all Paramount+ UK subscribers on 8th October 2022. Led by Oscar® nominee Demián Bichir (A Better Life), the 10-episode series from Tomorrow Studios (Snowpiercer) also stars Tony winner Anika Noni Rose (Dreamgirls, Power), Grace Gummer (Mr. Robot), Madison Taylor Baez (Selena: The Series), Kevin Carroll (Snowfall), Ian Foreman (Merry Wish-Mas), Jacob Buster (Colony) and Nick Stahl (Fear the Walking Dead).
Inspired by the original hit Swedish novel and film, the series centers on Mark (Bichir) and his daughter Eleanor (Baez), whose lives were changed 10 years earlier when she was turned into a vampire. Locked in at age 12, perhaps forever, Eleanor lives a closed-in life, able to go out only at night, while her father does his best to provide her with the human blood she needs to stay alive. With these emotionally charged and terrifying ingredients as a starting point, LET THE RIGHT ONE IN will upend genre expectations, turning a naturalistic lens on human frailty, strength, and compassion.
LET THE RIGHT ONE IN is executive produced by award-winning playwright, writer, and producer Andrew Hinderaker (Away, PENNY DREADFUL) who also serves as showrunner. Seith Mann (HOMELAND, #FreeRayshawn, Raising Dion) is also an executive producer and directed the pilot, as well as multiple episodes. Marty Adelstein and Becky Clements are executive producers for Tomorrow Studios (an ITV Studios partnership). Alissa Bachner is co-executive producing, and Bichir serves as a producer on the series.
We will get the chance to decide if we ‘Let The Right One In’ when it debuts on Paramount Plus UK on October 8th.
