Showtime’s new thriller drama “LET THE RIGHT ONE IN” will premiere on streaming and on demand for all SHOWTIME subscribers on Friday, October 7, before premiering on-air on Sunday, October 9 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. The 10-episode series from Tomorrow Studios (Snowpiercer), led by Oscar® nominee Demián Bichir (A Better Life), 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).
The series is based on the original hit Swedish novel and film, and it follows Mark (Bichir) and his daughter Eleanor (Baez), whose lives were changed ten years ago when she was turned into a vampire. Eleanor lives a closed-in life, able to go out only at night, after being locked in at the age of 12, while her father does his best to provide her with the human blood she requires to survive. With these emotionally charged and terrifying ingredients as a starting point, LET THE RIGHT ONE IN will upend genre expectations by focusing on human frailty, strength, and compassion through a naturalistic lens.
Andrew Hinderaker (Away, PENNY DREADFUL) is an award-winning playwright, writer, and producer who also serves as showrunner on LET THE RIGHT ONE IN. Seith Mann (HOMELAND, #FreeRayshawn, Raising Dion) also serves as an executive producer and directs the pilot and several episodes. Tomorrow Studios’ executive producers are Marty Adelstein and Becky Clements (an ITV Studios partnership). Alissa Bachner is co-executive producing the series, and Bichir is a producer.
