Hysteria is a coming-to-age series ordered by Peacock and is expected to premiere in the coming years. The upcoming series is set in the Satanic Panic and explores American history and the hysterics they experienced because of the accumulated shock of the satanic periods. Lisa Katz, the President of Scripted Content on Peacock, expressed that the thriller series will be an exploration of the complex word that existed in the satanic panic of the 80s.
She also added that the series would be set amidst the nostalgic 1980s, will have mystery and heavy metal and will finally be accentuated by the heavy American Setting. Beatrice Springborn, UCP President, also added that the upcoming series would delve into the panic, the anger, and the desires and dread the Americans underwent through those days. Here is all you need to know about the “Satanic Panic” show.
Hysteria Season 1 Release Date: When will it air?
So far, we do not have any news on when the first season of the Satanic Panic series will be premiering. The series order was given out in August, and the likeliest scenario is that the series writers are yet, to sum up, the series plot.
Written and executively produced by Mathew Scott Kane, the series will be produced by Luca, a Universal Studio Group division. We do not also know the episode count of the series, but this information will be released once the series is in development. If we were to predict the series release date, the earliest you should expect the show on your screens is by 2023 or 2024.
Hysteria Season 1 Plot: What can we expect?
The series is a show that will describe the hysteria that the Americans had when the Satanic Panic attack started in the 1980s. The plot explores a university quarterback who disappears mysteriously, leaving behind no trails. His disappearance brings along panic among the town, but a specific metal band sees it as a perfect opportunity to make a killing on people’s hysterics.
Since they are struggling as a band, they realize that they can create more luxury and fame by building a front as a band based on the occult. What started as opportunistic soon turns wild as murders and kidnappings associated with supernatural activities are reported in the area. The town soon goes on a witch hunt, and the trails lead directly to them.
Hysteria Season 1 Cast: Who will be in?
So far, there is no news of the series cast apart from the executive producer and the series writer, Mathew Scott Kane. All is known is that the series will include a quarterback who will go missing, a heavy metal band and witch hunters who will be out searching for the perpetrators.
Cast announcements usually come after the plot has been fully written and organized, and you should expect the series to follow the same trend. In case Peacock makes the cast announcement, you will be updated.
Hysteria Season 1 Trailer: When can we watch it?
The Satanic Panic period show does not have a trailer, which might go on for a while. As we wait for the trailer’s premiere, other satanic panic shows might catch your eye. The House of the Devil (MPI Meda Group), Paradise Lost, The Child Murders at Robin Hills (HBO) and Indictment: The Martin Trail (Hbo) are some of the series with the same storyline.
