AMC Networks has officially added the six-part revenge thriller The Beast Must Die to its roster. The show most likely will air on AMC and AMC+ later this year due to the ongoing pandemic.
The Beast Must Die is centered on the novel by Nicholas Blake, yet the show finds a grieving mother infiltrating the life of the man she believes killed her son.
“This series will be something special for AMC and our AMC+ subscribers. It continues a legacy of very successful relationships with the brilliant Jared Harris and our friends at Scott Free and forges new producing partnerships with BritBox and New Regency Television,” said Dan McDermott, president of original programming for AMC Networks.
“The Beast Must Die honors the novel upon which it is based with a fantastic piece of television that cuts to the heart of grief, hate, revenge and allows us to ask questions about our own humanity in a remarkably engaging and suspenseful way.”
The Dome Karukoski-directed series will star Jared Harris, Cush Jumbo OBE, Billy Howle, Nathaniel Parker, and Geraldine James.
