Apple TV+ Series Starring Uma Thurman, Based on Award-Winning Israeli Show, Gets Release Date
Apple TV+ announced on Wednesday the premiere date and first look for its upcoming thriller series “Suspicion,” starring Academy Award-nominated actress and “Kill Bill” star Uma Thurman.
The Apple Original eight-episode series will premiere globally on Feb. 2, 2022, with the first two episodes, followed by one new episode every Friday.
In “Suspicion,” the son of a well-known American businesswoman, played by Thurman, is kidnapped from a New York hotel.

The third season of “False Flag” is set to premiere March 2022 on Keshet 12, according to Variety.

BAFTA Award nominee Rob Williams (“Man in the High Castle”) will serve as showrunner and executive producer. Other executive producers on the project include Emmy Award nominee Chris Long (“The Americans”), who also directs, Howard Burch for Keshet Productions, Avi Nir for Keshet Media Group and Anna Winger. The series is being produced by Darin McLeod (“Watchmen”).
