The series will tell three, stand-alone but interconnected stories. Two of them will form part of the show’s six-episode run, while the third will take place in the UK as an innovative live event.

The first part is “Summer,” written by Dennis Kelly and directed by Marc Munden. Told over three episodes, “Summer” follows the story of Sam (Law), a man who is drawn to a mysterious Island off the British coast where he encounters a group of islanders set on preserving their traditions at any cost.

Following “Summer,” viewers will get the chance to become part of The Third Day world at a major immersive theatre event. Created by Punchdrunk and directed by Felix Barrett, audiences will inhabit the story as it happens, live. Places will be limited, so audiences will also be able to follow the events online.

The Third Day concludes with “Winter”: told over a further three episodes. Written by Kit de Waal, Dean O’Loughlin and Dennis Kelly and directed by Philippa Lowthorpe, it follows Helen (Harris), a strong-willed outsider who comes to the island seeking answers, but whose arrival precipitates a fractious battle to decide its fate

The Third Day tells three, stand-alone but interconnected stories, not only on screen but also in a live, immersive event. The first story, titled Summer, tells the story of Sam, a man who is drawn to a mysterious Island off the British coast where he encounters a group of islanders set on preserving their traditions at any cost. Following Summer, viewers will get the chance to become part of The Third Day world at a major immersive theatre event.

The final story, titled Winter, follows Helen, a strong-willed outsider who comes to the island seeking answers, but whose arrival precipitates a fractious battle to decide its fate. Both Summer and Winter will consist of three episodes. Each story can be experienced separately, with Summer and Winter working together as a complete series – but all three parts together describe a larger narrative, creating a unique experience for those who seek it. The Third Day is produced by Sky Studios in association with HBO, Plan B and Punchdrunk and stars Jude Law and Naomie Harris. The scripts are being penned by Dennis Kelly, Kit de Waal and Dean O’Loughlin. Marc Munden and Philippa Lowthorpe are directing.
