April 30, 2024 — Last night on Monday, April 29, Apple TV+ celebrated the world premiere of the highly anticipated sci-fi series “Dark Matter” at the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles. “Dark Matter” makes its global debut on Apple TV+ on May 8, 2024 with the first two episodes, followed by new episodes every Wednesday through June 26.

Attendees at the “Dark Matter” world premiere included cast and executive producers from the series with star and executive producer Joel Edgerton, series stars Jennifer Connelly, Alice Braga, Dayo Okeniyi, Jimmi Simpson, Oakes Fegley and Amanda Brugel, and showrunner, writer and executive producer Blake Crouch, executive producers Matt Tolmach, David Manpearl and Don Kurt, producer and writer Jacquelyn Ben-Zekry, executive producer and director Jakob Verbruggen, directors Celine Held and Logan George, composer Jason Hill and more.

The new nine-episode sci-fi thriller is based on the blockbuster book by New York Times bestselling author Blake Crouch and features an ensemble cast that includes Joel Edgerton, Jennifer Connelly, Alice Braga, Jimmi Simpson, Dayo Okeniyi and Oakes Fegley.

Hailed as one of the best sci-fi novels of the decade, “Dark Matter” is a story about the road not taken. The series will follow Jason Dessen (played by Edgerton), a physicist, professor and family man who — one night while walking home on the streets of Chicago — is abducted into an alternate version of his life. Wonder quickly turns to nightmare when he tries to return to his reality amid the mind-bending landscape of lives he could have lived. In this labyrinth of realities, he embarks on a harrowing journey to get back to his true family and save them from the most terrifying, unbeatable foe imaginable: himself.

Crouch serves as creator, executive producer, showrunner and writer alongside executive producers Matt Tolmach and David Manpearl for Matt Tolmach Productions. Edgerton also serves as executive producer. “Dark Matter” is produced for Apple TV+ by Sony Pictures Television.
