Paramount+ today revealed the official trailer and art for the upcoming original series FATAL ATTRACTION. The series premieres Sunday, 30 April with three episodes exclusively on Paramount+ in the U.S. and Canada. The series will premiere the following day on Monday, 1 May in the U.K., Australia, Latin America, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, and France, and on 11 May in South Korea. Following the premiere, new episodes of the 8-episode-long season will be available to stream weekly on Sundays in the U.S. and Canada, on Mondays in the U.K., Australia, Latin America, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, and France, and on Thursdays in South Korea. The final two episodes will be available to stream on Monday, 29 May.


The all-new series is a deep dive reimagining of the 1980s cultural touchstone FATAL ATTRACTION through the lens of privilege, personality disorders, family dynamics, and murder. In the present day, after serving 15 years in prison for the murder of Alexandra Forrest (Lizzy Caplan), Daniel Gallagher (Joshua Jackson) is paroled with the goals of reconnecting with his family and proving his innocence. In 2008, Dan first meets Alex and his world begins to unravel after their brief affair threatens to destroy the life he’s built with his wife, Beth (Amanda Peet).
