Dark Matter

Based on the bestselling novel by Blake Crouch, the series stars Joel Edgerton as a man navigating a labyrinth of alternate realities.

Apple TV+ presents Dark Matter, a highly anticipated new sci-fi thriller based on the bestselling novel of the same name by Blake Crouch. Hailed as one of the best sci-fi novels of the decade, the series stars Joel Edgerton as Jason Dessen, a physicist, professor, and family man whose life takes an unexpected turn.

Premiering on 8 May 2024, Dark Matter unfolds over nine episodes, with new episodes released weekly until 26 June. The series joins Apple TV+’s impressive roster of visually stunning and ambitious sci-fi productions, including For All Mankind and Foundation.

Dark Matter centres on Jason Dessen, a college physics professor living in Chicago with his wife, Daniela (Jennifer Connelly), and their teenage son, Charlie (Oakes Fegley). Jason once had ambitions for a brilliant research career, but he set aside those dreams to prioritise his family life. One fateful night, while walking home, he is abducted by a masked stranger and wakes up in a world where his life has taken a different path.

In this alternate reality, Jason is not married, has no child, and has achieved professional success in his career. He soon discovers that he has been thrust into a universe where the many-worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics is real, and every decision creates a branching path, leading to countless parallel worlds. As he grapples with the mind-bending nature of these realities, he embarks on a harrowing journey to return to his true family and save them from the most terrifying foe imaginable: himself.

The series explores thought-provoking themes of identity, the road not taken, and the nature of reality. It blends suspense and intrigue with emotional depth, as Jason tries to comprehend the complex physics behind his situation and find his way back to his loved ones.

In addition to Edgerton, the series boasts a stellar supporting cast, including Jennifer Connelly, Alice Braga, Jimmi Simpson, Dayo Okeniyi, and Oakes Fegley. Behind the camera, Crouch serves as writer, showrunner, and executive producer, alongside executive producers Matt Tolmach and David Manpearl for Matt Tolmach Productions. Louis Leterrier directs the first four episodes.

With its intriguing premise, exceptional cast and crew, and exploration of captivating themes, Dark Matter promises to be a must-watch addition to the sci-fi genre.
