“The Woman in the Wall”: Ruth Wilson stars in a gripping new thriller series that unravels a haunting mystery in a small Irish town.

Ruth Wilson Takes Center Stage in Thrilling Mystery Series

SHOWTIME has just released the official trailer for its upcoming thriller series, “The Woman in the Wall,” starring and executive produced by the talented Ruth Wilson. The show, consisting of six gripping episodes, is scheduled to premiere on Friday, January 19, for Paramount+ subscribers with the Paramount+ with SHOWTIME plan, before making its on-air debut on Sunday, January 21, at 9PM ET/PT on Paramount+ with SHOWTIME.

Written and created by Joe Murtagh, a BAFTA Award nominee known for his work on “Calm with Horses,” “The Woman in the Wall” follows the story of Lorna Brady (played by Ruth Wilson). Lorna, a woman from the fictional Irish town of Kilkinure, wakes up one morning to discover a dead body in her house. The eerie twist to this discovery is that Lorna has no recollection of who the deceased woman might be or if she herself is responsible for the apparent murder.

To add to the mystery, Lorna has been plagued by severe bouts of sleepwalking since she was taken away from her life at the age of 15 and confined in The Kilkinure Convent. This establishment, a fictitious representation of Ireland’s notorious Magdalene Laundries for women, holds a dark secret from Lorna’s past. It was at the convent that she gave birth to her daughter Agnes, who was cruelly taken away from her, leaving Lorna in the dark about her child’s fate.

Meanwhile, Detective Colman Akande, played by BAFTA Award nominee Daryl McCormack, becomes entangled in Lorna’s story as he investigates a crime apparently unrelated to the dead body found in her house. Colman, known for his scathing wit and guarded emotions, is forced to confront his own haunting secrets when he meets Lorna. As they search for answers, their paths intersect in unexpected ways that will keep viewers engaged throughout the series.

The stellar cast of “The Woman in the Wall” also includes Simon Delaney, Philippa Dunne, Mark Huberman, Hilda Fay, Frances Tomelty, Dermot Crowley, and Fiona Bell, forming a powerful ensemble that promises to captivate audiences with their performances.

Produced by Motive Pictures for SHOWTIME and The BBC, “The Woman in the Wall” is helmed by an impressive team of executive producers, including Simon Maxwell, Sam Lavender, Joe Murtagh, Ruth Wilson, and Harry Wootliff.

Fans of thrilling dramas and fans of Ruth Wilson’s previous work, such as “The Affair” and “His Dark Materials,” can certainly look forward to “The Woman in the Wall.” Its unique premise, engaging cast, and expert storytelling make it a must-watch for anyone seeking an intriguing television experience. As we eagerly await the show’s premiere, we can only speculate on the twists and turns that lie ahead for Lorna and Detective Akande as they navigate their entangled paths in search of answers.
