So, when is the brand new season releasing? What is the plot? Who will be in the cast? Keep reading to know more.
The Crowded Room is a thriller about Danny Sullivan (Tom Holland), a young man with multiple personalities. The character is said to be loosely based on Billy Milligan, the first person acquitted of a crime because they suffered from a dissociative identity disorder. Milligan’s story was detailed in the award-winning biography The Minds of Billy Milligan, by Daniel Keyes.
The series is said to be a “seasonal anthology” about inspirational stories of people who have struggled and learned to live with mental illness, so don’t expect season 2 to follow the same story or be focused on Holland’s Danny Sullivan.
The Crowded Room already has a stacked cast, which includes Tom Holland (Spider-Man: No Way Home, Uncharted) as Danny Sullivan, Amanda Seyfried (Mamma Mia, Les Misérables) as Rya, a clinical psychologist, Emmy Rossum (Shameless) as Candy, Danny’s mother, Emma Laird (Mayor of Kingstown) as Danny’s girlfriend, Sasha Lane (Loki) and Christopher Abbott (The Sinner).
A lot has been made of the fact that Rossum will be playing Holland’s mother despite him being only 10 years her junior, but it has been suggested that the Shameless actress might only appear in flashbacks, explaining the small age gap between the two stars.
There’s no release date for The Crowded Room as of yet. But the series is expected to start shooting in March, so is unlikely to debut until the end of 2022 at the earliest.
The full season of 10 episodes for the first season will stream on Apple TV+. Sign up to Apple TV+ now. The series is produced by Apple Studios, New Regency Television, Weed Road Productions, and EMJAG Productions.
