When is the release date for “The Watcher” on Netflix?
“The Watcher” will come to Netflix on Thursday, October 13th. The series will have seven episodes. Other cast members are Mia Farrow, Terry Kinney, Richard Kind, Margo Martindale, Noma Dumezweni and Joe Mantello. Here are their roles, per IndieWire:
“There’s a kooky older woman named Pearl (Farrow) and her brother Jasper (Terry Kinney), who sneaks into the Brannock’s house and hides in their dumbwaiter. There’s Karen (Coolidge), the realtor and an old acquaintance of Nora’s, who makes them feel like they don’t really belong, and nosy neighbors Mitch (Richard Kind) and Mo (Martindale), who don’t seem to understand property lines.”
“The Watcher” is Ryan Murphy’s latest collaboration with Netflix. Last month, the platform also released “Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story,” starring Evan Peters as the serial killer. The series has been controversial for its depiction of the criminal, as well as for re-traumatizing family’s victims.
