The BBC four-part series man inside has set its premiere date on Netflix outside of the UK. It will air in its entirety beginning October 31, 2022.

Steven Moffat is behind the series and is best known for his work on doctor who and the BBC/Netflix co-production dracula.

Led by David Tennant (doctor whomarvel Jessica Jones) and Stanley Tucci (The Hunger Games), the series is about a prisoner on death row in the US, a vicar in a quiet English town, a journalist, and a math teacher who find themselves embroiled in a murder mystery.

The cast also includes Dolly Wells, Lydia West, Dylan Baker, Atkins Estimond, Lyndsey Marshal, Louis Oliver and Eke Chukwu.

The series has already aired in the UK on BBC One. Episodes 1 and 2 aired on September 26 and 27, while the last two aired on October 3 and 4.

It was released to mostly positive reviews from the UK press, with the New Statesman comparing the show to a “television equivalent of a game of chess”, adding: “Every move a character makes has consequences, some intended.” and others don’t.” It requires total concentration. Walk away even for a moment, and you literally lose the plot.”

The show was included in the October 2022 release schedule for Netflix, but only with a TBD. We can now confirm that the show will launch on Halloween.

This is one of the many shows that Netflix has partnered with the BBC on over the years. Bodyguard, you don’t know meme, Giri/HajiY The snake are some of the biggest recent examples.

Is the series a limited series or could we get a season 2 of man inside?

Famously, most British shows don’t last very long. The series ends well after four episodes, but according to Moffat, it’s entirely up to the audience whether we’ll see more in the future.

He told Radio Times:

“The story will end in four episodes. It’s done at the end of that. As for whether or not you could do a spin-off or do some sort of sequel? I don’t know at this time. It’s not really up to me, and it’s not up to the broadcasters, it really is up to the audience, isn’t it? And if someone wanted it, you have to sit down and think, ‘Is there something to do?’
