Are you in the mood for a mystery? Perhaps some... murrrrrderrrrr? Poker Face may just be the series for you. From Rian Johnson, director of Knives Out and Glass Onion, comes a new mystery-of-the-week series starring and executive produced by Natasha Lyonne (Russian Doll). Lyonne plays Charlie, a woman with the extraordinary ability to sniff out when someone is lying. And the compulsion to bluntly call it out. That is a handy skill when it comes to solving mysteries, but as she points out, the real trick is figuring out why a person is lying. Not to mention what the truth really is. Over the course of the season, Charlie travels from place to place, encountering a suspicious cast of characters and new mysteries to solve at each stop. It’s going to be a wild ride, especially if the new trailer is anything to go by.
Look at that cast. Half the excitement of this show is going to be seeing who Charlie runs into next. (And what they may or may not have done.) We don’t want to spoil anything about Poker Face because, well, it’s a mystery show. Figuring out who/how/why done it is the fun part. We can say that, from the very first episode, this show scratches that murder mystery itch perfectly. It’s going to be so much fun to watch Charlie piece together these mysteries and catch people in lies.And given what we’ve already seen from Johnson, we know each episode of Poker Face is going to be something special.
It’s a natural fit for Peacock too. Poker Face joins a huge library of mystery shows on the platform, from modern mindbenders like The Resort and The Calling to classics like Murder, She Wrote. If you need to sharpen your detective skills right now, there’s plenty on the platform to tide you over until Poker Face comes out.
