You know what the world could use more of? Stylish thrillers set in an unclear timeframe that deal extensively with ’50s style hot rod racing gangs. Thankfully, Hulu agreed and ordered the upcoming Abigail Spencer-starring drama Reprisal to series.
Reprisal is a femme fatale thriller series written by Josh Corbin and directed by Jonathan Van Tulleken. Corbin also serves as producer alongside Warren Littlefield (producer of The Handmaid’s Tale) and Barry Jossen. A+E Studios and The Littlefield Company were the studios behind the pilot. Abigail Spencer (Timeless) stars as Katherine Harlow, a woman who is left for dead by her brother and her gang only to re-emerge as a woman named Doris Dearie. Now, years after “Katherine” died, Doris sets off to save her niece and exact revenge on the gang that tried to kill her.
And if all of that doesn’t sound strange enough, wait until you get a load of the visuals at play. Here is everything you need to know about Hulu’s Reprisal.
The full trailer for Reprisal is here. Gaze upon it in all its day-glow violent sock hop glory.

Reprisal Release Date
Reprisal is officially set to premiere on December 6, 2019 on Hulu. All 10 episodes will be available on that date. Production took a bit longer than usual as filming near Wilmington, North Carolina was briefly halted due to hurricane Florence in the fall, according to Deadline. Thankfully no one was injured and Reprisal is all set to rev its engines in December.
Abigail Spencer stars as series lead Katherine Harlow/Doris Dearie. The cast also includes Rodrigo Santoro (Westworld) as Joel Kelly, Mena Massoud (Aladdin) as Ethan Hart, Madison Davenport as Meredith, David Dastmalchian (Ant-Man) as Johnson, and Rhys Wakefield (The Purge) as Matty.
