Invite a little drama into your life…
Looking back over the year, there has been such an abundance of great television for us to dive into.
Whether we’re talking about exciting new gems to make a splash or the return of some familiar favourites, there has been something for everyone.
However, it looks like some of the very best has been saved for last, especially for those who enjoy their comedy black. Pitch black.
Of course, we’re talking about Landscapers, but how many episodes are there?
How many episodes of Landscapers are there?
The TV miniseries Landscapers is made up of four episodes in total.
In the US, the first episode premiered on HBO on Monday, December 6th 2021 and it then aired in the UK on the following day.
Subsequent episodes are scheduled to arrive weekly, so US audiences can expect to tune in on Mondays while UK viewers can catch up with the latest installments on Tuesday.
With that in mind, the finale is set to land on the 27th and 28th, respectively.
As for what to expect, the series was written by Ed Sinclair and directed by Will Sharpe, drawing inspiration from a real-life murder case dating back to the late nineties.
Nottinghamshire residents William and Patricia Wycherley were killed by their daughter Susan and her partner Christopher, played by Olivia Colman (The Favourite) and David Thewlis (Naked).
“The best thing I’ve read for many, many years”
Both stars have voiced just how enthusiastic they were about the project upon reading the screenplay.
Speaking with Sky News, Olivia explained:
“If it had been a sh*t script I would have been really nervous. I might have said I’m not available, I’m picking the bobbles off my tights or something, but I was really excited when I first read it. It’s just the originality in it and the inventiveness.”
David also offered his similarly positive perspective: “I read the script and thought it was just perfect, the best thing I’ve read for many, many years.
“I was amazed when I googled the real story to find out how much of it is completely true and actually the truth bits are the most bizarre bits.”
Who else is in it?
David and Olivia may be firmly center-stage, but there are some other terrific performers aboard showcasing their talents too:
- Kate O’Flynn
- Dipo Ola
- Samuel Anderson
- Karl Johnson
- Felicity Montagu
- Daniel Rigby
Landscapers airs on HBO and Sky.
