The Devil's Hour: Release Date, Trailer, Cast And Plot

The name alone of the brand new Amazon Prime series ‘The Devil’s Hour’ is enough to send shivers down your spine and the first looks at the new release have done just that.

Announced in 2019, fans have been waiting almost three years for this chilling horror.

This 6 part psychological thriller is certainly gonna be a must watch. So, here’s everything you need to know about ‘The Devil’s Hour’...

The Devils Hour Release Date


There has been no confirmed release date for ‘the Devil’s Hour’ yet, but we do know the series is set to premier on Amazon Prime at some point this year.

It's predicted that the series will come out at some point around Halloween, so there isn't too long to wait. 

The Devil's Hour Cast And Crew

One member of the crew who is helping write, create and produce the new series is Stephen Moffat. Most well known for shows such as ‘Doctor Who’, ‘Sherlock’ and the 2020 adaptation of ‘Dracula’, Moffat is sure to add some of his signature clever plot writing to ‘the Devil’s Hour’


Moving onto the cast, Jessica Raine (‘Call the Midwife’) will take centre stage playing the main character of tormented mother Lucy. We also have Peter Capaldi (‘Doctor Who’) who is playing the mysterious character, Gideon. Another central character is Ravi the main detective investigating the events of the series, he’ll be played by Nikesh Patel (Indian Summers).

 Now looking at the rest of the cast we have:

  • Meera Syal (Yesterday, Goodness Gracious Me)
  • Alex Ferns (Chernobyl)
  • Phil Dunster (Ted Lasso)
  • Barbara Marten (Sanctuary)
  • Thomas Dominique (Blood Drive)
  • Rhiannon Harper-Rafferty (The Donmar Warehouse's All-Female Shakespeare Trilogy)
  • John Alastair (Swimming with Men)
  • Sandra Huggett (Coronation Street)

The Devil's Hour Plot And Trailer


‘The Devil’s Hour’ trailer doesn’t give away too much about the plot itself, but it does give an idea of how scary the new show will be.

Peter Capaldi’s character staring into your soul through a one way mirror is just absolutely chilling to the bone. 



Regarding the actual plot itself, we do know a bit from various synopses and interviews.

‘The Devil’s Hour’ follows the story of Lucy (Jessica Raine), who is woken at exactly 3.33am every night by terrifying visions. She’s got an eight year old son who is completely blank and emotionless. 

Jessica Raine stated that “she [Lucy] has a very challenging job. She's a child protection officer and on top of this, there are a series of quite dark happenings around her and she's the connection.

Peter Capaldi's character is kind of piecing it all together very slowly.”


What we do know for sure is that ‘The Devil’s Hour’ is going to be a fantastic, mind bending, chilling new series and is definitely not one to miss.
