A new dark comedy is coming to Apple TV+. The streaming service announced Bad Sisters on March 24, simultaneously revealing the cast and a first-look photo from the series, set to debut later this year.

Bad Sisters is created, written by, and starring Emmy-nominee and BAFTA Award winner Sharon Horgan (Shining Vale, Catastrophe).

Apple TV+’s Bad Sisters is billed as “a delicious blend of both dark comedy and thriller.” According to the series description, the 10-episode season “follows the lives of the Garvey sisters bound together by the premature death of their parents and a promise to always protect one another.”

The Bad Sisters ensemble cast also includes Claes Bang (Dracula, The Northman), Brian Gleeson (Frank of Ireland, Peaky Blinders), Daryl McCormack (Good Luck to you, Leo Grande, Peaky Blinders), Assaad Bouab (Call My Agent, The Pursuit of Love), and newcomer Saise Quinn (Monster).
