Scarlett Johansson returns to the screen to star in Just Cause, an Amazon drama series. The series faced stiff competition, and finally, Amazon managed to win over the project from Christy Hall, the series writer. Amazon studios gave the limited series straight to order, and the upcoming show is set to be based on a 1992 novel of the same name. John Katzenbach wrote the novel, exploring a journalist assigned to cover the story of a Death row inmate who could be innocent. The upcoming show’s lead cast will be swapped, and instead of a male protagonist, the series will be led by a female. Here is everything we know about the upcoming series.
Just Cause Season 1 Release Date: When will it air?
Unfortunately, a release date for the upcoming series is yet to be set, and so far, we do not know how soon the show will be available. The series announcement came in late this year, and filming of the show will likely start next year. The series is currently in its active development stages, and the screenwriters are still writing a script for the crime drama. A potential release date of the upcoming series is either before 2023 comes to an end or early 2024.
Just Cause Season 1 Plot: What can we expect?
The upcoming series is based on John Katzenberch novel of the same name that tells the story of a journalist assigned to cover the story of a man on his death row. The original series covered an innocent black man who got wrongfully accused and was now facing death charges. Soon enough, the journalist discovers that the black man is only guilty because of prejudice and racism. And he succeeds in freeing the death row inmate, winning the journalist a Pulitzer Prize. Now that the series has interchanged a male lead cast with a female, the upcoming show’s plot could also be tweaked. It may follow closely on the novel, or modifications will be made, and these are updates that we expect to be available soon.
Just Cause Season 1 Cast: Who can we expect?
Scarlet Johansson will be the lead protagonist of the upcoming series, and she will star as Madison Cowart, the reporter sent to cover the story of an inmate whose days are number. Johnson has worked in many shows, including Black Widow, the critically acclaimed series. She has also been nominated for the Oscar twice and has won the Tonys. She will also serve as the series executive producer alongside Christy Hall, the show’s screenwriter Jonathan Lia and Keenan Flynn. Zara Duffy will also be overseeing the production of the upcoming show. Johnson cannot star in the upcoming series alone; therefore, we expect the cast updates to trickle anytime soon.
Just Cause Season 1 Trailer: When can we see it?
Unfortunately, we have yet to determine how soon the Just Cause series trailer will be released, but we are certain it will not be in 2022. The year is almost ending, and the drama series filming is yet to start, making it impossible to see that series trailer this year. An appropriate and approximate time for the series’ first season to be released is either before 2023 ends or early next year. As you wait for the series release, you should binge on Amazon series that have been released recently. The Devil’s Hour, Jack Ryan, and The Terminal List are but some.
