Directed by Melina Matsoukas, The Changeling is an upcoming horror-fantasy television series. It is based on the novel of the same name by Victor LaValle.
The series is written by Kelly Marcel, who also serves as an executive producer alongside Megan Ellison, Sue Naegle, Patrick Chu, Ali Krug, Melina Matsoukas, and Lakeith Stanfield. The series follows a man searching for his wife after she does something horrific in the aftermath of the birth of their first child.
So, when is the brand new season releasing? What is the Plot? Who will be in the cast? Keep reading to know more.
The Changeling Plot and Cast
The Changeling novel centers around Apollo Kagwa, Stanfield’s role in the series, who has recently become a father in New York City. Although Apollo is dedicated to raising his son, his wife Emma seems uninterested, seemingly suffering from post-partum depression. However, there are more sinister forces at work here, and when Emma disappears, Apollo must travel through a dangerously fantastical realm to find her.
Based on the premise and the name, the series will presumably incorporate elements of the changeling myth from European folklore, which tells of a fairy (or spirit or devil or troll or any other sort of creature based on the location of origin) that kidnaps human infants and replaces them with one of their own.
In some versions of the legend, the supernatural kidnapper will also take the mother to nurse the stolen child in the fairy world. The series, however, is sure to incorporate social issues just as the novel does, namely the role that gender and race play in fatherhood.
Coming to the cast, includes Lakeith Stanfield as Apollo, Adina Porter as Lillian, Clark Backo as Emmy, and Samuel T. Herring. We will also get to see Malcolm Barrett as Patrice Green, Alexis Louder as Lillian Kagwa, Amirah Vann as Kim Valentine, and Jared Abrahamson as Brian West.
The Changeling Release Date
Unfortunately, we don’t have a release date for The Changeling, since the makers have not confirmed it yet. Filming of the series began in May 2022 in New Jersey under the working title Improbable Valentine, and is expected to conclude in the fall.
So, the brand new show might arrive sometime in 2023. Annapurna Television, Apple Studios, and De La Revolución Films are the production companies of the series.
