Pop has set an October 14 premiere date for Wolf Creek, the six-episode Australian series from Lionsgate Television and Screentime based on the feature horror franchise.
John Jarratt reprises his villainous role from the films as Mick Taylor, a murdering psychopath wreaking havoc in the Australian Outback — but this time, the tables are turned.
An American family vacationing in Northern Australia becomes the Taylor’s unsuspecting prey. The sole survivor is Eve Thorogood (Lucy Fry), a college student who vows to bring the sadistic killer to justice or die trying. Wolf Creek reveals her complex and extraordinary journey, traveling every step of the way as she evolves from child to adult, from prey to predator. But can she triumph over Mick Taylor, evil incarnate?
“Wolf Creek is a binge-worthy, premium revenge tale that we are thrilled to bring fans at the perfect time of the year,” said Pop president Brad Schwartz said. “To turn everything you expect from a horror film around and hunt the psychopath through a strong and singularly-focused female protagonist is thrilling to watch.”
The original Wolf Creek bowed at Sundance 2005 and was followed by a 2013 sequel.
A STAN original, the Wolf Creek series is produced by Screentime in association with Emu Creek Pictures and financed with the assistance of Screen Australia and the South Australian Film Corporation.
