Channel 4 Releases Trailer For ‘The Gathering’, From ‘Line Of Duty’ Producers, Coming May

Written by acclaimed novelist Helen Walsh

by Dave Elliott

Channel 4 has released a trailer for The Gathering, a major new six-part drama produced by award-winning World Productions (Line of Duty, Save Me, Vigil), written by acclaimed novelist Helen Walsh in her first original script for television.

Written by acclaimed novelist Helen Walsh (The Lemon Grove, Once Upon A Time In England), the high-octane trailer showcases newcomer Eva Morgan as working-class student Kelly, who is attacked at an illicit rave on a tidal islet alongside Sadie Soverall (Saltburn) as Jessica, a friend and elite gymnastics teammate who seemingly has it all. Vinette Robinson (Boiling Point) stars as Jessica’s controlling and toxic mother Natalie and Warren Brown (The Responder) is Kelly’s hard-working father Paul who struggles with his own impulse control. The cast also includes Richard Coyle (Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore) as successful solicitor Jules, Sonny Walker (The Responder) as Adam, Ryan Quarmby (The Last Kingdom) as Charlie and newcomer Luca Kamleh-Chapman as Bazi.

Filmed and set in Liverpool and around Merseyside, ‘The Gathering’ is ultimately a whodunnit – or, in this case – a-why-done it.  Focusing on a group of disparate teenagers and their parents, each character has a motive for attacking Kelly. An accomplished gymnast, on the National Team pathway, Kelly is committed to her strict training schedule but finds freedom and liberation in the joyous, unregulated world of free running. Each episode details the events leading up to the attack from a fresh perspective, unpacking the rivalries and relationships of a disparate group of teens and their parents. As their secrets and lies are laid bare, the truth behind the attack emerges.

Executive Producers for ‘The Gathering’ are Simon Heath, Laura Cotton, Helen Walsh and Gareth Bryn. The Producer is Graham Drover and it was directed by Gareth Bryn (Episodes 1, 2, 5 and 6) with Amanda Blue also directing (Episodes 3 and 4). Gwawr Lloyd is the Commissioning Editor for Drama at Channel 4.

The Gathering‘ does not have an exact premiere date yet, but will air in May 2024 on Channel 4. If you want to keep track of this or any other show, you can add them via our Never Miss system, and you’ll be notified when it gets a UK premiere date.
