'Unbelievable': Release date, plot, cast, trailer, and everything else about the Netflix show

On Thursday, Netflix dropped the terrific trailer for its upcoming miniseries titled 'Unbelievable', which stars Kaitlyn Dever at the center of a rape. One look at the latest trailer for the miniseries and it is going to leave your guts wrenched. The series follows a teenager named Marie, who is charged with lying about being raped. Her story is rubbished at first, but in another corner of the country, two female detectives follow a twisting path to arrive at the truth.

Release date

All eight episodes of 'Unbelievable' will be available to stream on Netflix September 13, 2019, onwards. 


When teenager Marie Adler (played by Kaitlyn Dever) files a police report claiming she's been sexually assaulted by an intruder in her home, the investigating detectives, as well as the people closest to her, come to doubt the truth of her story. Meanwhile, hundreds of miles away, detectives Grace Rasmussen and Karen Duvall (played by Emmy winners Toni Collette and Merritt Wever) meet while investigating an eerily similar pair of intruder rapes and partner to catch a potential serial rapist.



'Unbelievable' stars Toni Collette as Det. Grace Rasmussen, Merritt Wever as Det. Karen Duvall, Kaitlyn Dever as Marie Adler and Danielle Macdonald.


Inspired by the real events in The Marshall Project and ProPublica Pulitzer Prize-winning article, 'An Unbelievable Story of Rape'-- written by T. Christian Miller and Ken Armstrong-- and the This American Life radio episode 'Anatomy of Doubt'-- with episodes directed by Oscar nominees Susannah Grant and Lisa Cholodenko-- 'Unbelievable' is a story of unspeakable trauma, unwavering tenacity, and astounding resilience. Showrunner Susannah Grant executive produces the series, from CBS Television Studios, along with Sarah Timberman, Carl Beverly, Lisa Cholodenko, Ayelet Waldman, Michael Chabon, Katie Couric, Richard Tofel, Neil Barsky, Robyn Semien, and Marie.

“If the truth is inconvenient, they don’t believe it.”

The incredibly sensitive subject is handled and portrayed with care and mirrored with accuracy by Grant and Cholodenko. The trailer also promises that the series will deliver with impact.

Where to watch

The series will be available to stream on Netflix following a September 13, 2019 premiere.
