So, you’ve done Netflix, Stan, Disney+ & Prime video to death and you need new, exciting content, STAT… right?
Well look no further and try HBO’s new series Run. It will air on Foxtel’s Showcase channel starting tonight.
From dream team collaborators Phoebe Waller-Bridge & Vicky Jones (Fleabag, Killing Eve), their new series, Run, is a dramedy which follows Ruby’s (Merritt Wever) life as its thrown upside down when she receives a text from her college sweetheart, Billy (Domhnall Gleeson). Said text, a single word, invites her to drop everything and meet him in New York to fulfil the pact they made 17 years ago.
We’re getting serious ‘romantic comedy meets thriller feat. heist’ vibes from the trailer below:
Om Metacritic, critics gave the series a score of 74/100 with generally favourable reviews based on what 21 critics had to say.
Vulture described Run as “a beam of glorious light and a jolt of electricity”.
Variety gushed, “[the leads have] admittedly scorching chemistry” and continued to share, “the less you know about Run, the better”. So ditch the spoilers and judge for yourself!
‘Run’ premieres on Fox Showcase tonight at 8.30pm. Episodes continue weekly on Thursday’s at 8:30pm.
