The Watcher Netflix 2022 Wiki, Cast Real Name, Plot, Release Date, Trailer

 The Watcher is an upcoming Netflix original series from the dynamic creative duo, Ryan Murphy and Ian Brennan, and we’re providing all the important details to keep you up to date.

The horror mystery is a limited series and is based on a true story. It’s adapted from a 2018 story titled the same name written by Reeves Wideman from the magazine The Cut. A month after the story was published, Netflix acquired film rights. It was an intense bidding battle that involved six studios, but Netflix came out the winner after paying out seven figures for a rights package.

The Watcher synopsis / Plot

Netflix has not released an official synopsis, but we have an idea of what the limited series is about. The Watcher follows a married couple whose move into their dream home is halted when they receive creepy letters and threats from a mysterious stalker called The Watcher.

What’s on Netflix provided us the basic premise of the story and we share it below:

Based on the real-life case, beginning in 2014, of the Broaddus family, who were spied on, threatened, and ultimately driven to sell their home & leave the town they loved, by a mysterious stalker who identified themselves only as “The Watcher” in the letters sent to Mr & Mrs Broaddus.

The Watcher Release Date

An official release date has not been announced by Netflix yet. Since the show is currently in production, we don’t expect a release date announcement any time soon. However, we’re expecting a 2022 release. After filming wraps, the show is probably going to spend between six to eight months in post-production. So we’re probably looking at the show being released on Netflix somewhere between August-October 2022.

Remember, these are only our predictions. The Watcher could come earlier or later than the dates we predicted. When Netflix announces the official release date, we’ll let you know!


When is The Watcher filming?

As we mentioned earlier, principal photography has already started. Filming started on Sept. 28, 2021 and is scheduled to end sometime in February 2022.

How many episodes The Watcher have?

The limited series will consist of seven episodes. Since the horror-mystery is billed as a limited series, there will most likely only be one season. However, there’s a possibility that there could be a second season if enough people watch the series.

As soon as Netflix announces the official release date, synopsis, and trailer, we’ll let you know! So make sure to stay tuned to Netflix Life for updates on The Watcher.
