The trailer promises deceit, near calls, political intrigue, and death-defying escapes as part of a quest to overcome darkness with hope as the sole light. Last Light’s premise is sure to have viewers wondering who is behind the oil crisis and why they have decided to wreak havoc on the globe. This thriller is sure to have viewers on the tip of their seats as they wait to see whether Andy ever finds his family safe and sound as he figures out who is responsible for the disaster. The viewer may anticipate stunning cinematography of the Middle East’s enormous desert. The show was filmed in Prague, Paris, and Abu Dhabi. There will be five episodes, each of which will last 45 minutes.

Dennie Gordon, the director, said in a statement:

“I am delighted to be able to share my work with you all. This project has been a career highlight for me; the opportunity to create an important narrative with an international cast of actors and artists, MGM International Television Productions, and Peacock, a studio and streaming service that has given me incredible creative freedom.”

He went on to say:

“I was highly inspired by Alfonso Cuarón’s magnificent film Children of Men, a scenario we can see just around the bend, and we intend to offer our viewers a glimmer of hope at the conclusion; what is possible if we all work together to effect change? I believe you will identify with Andy Yeats and his family, and we hope that this series will spark debates about our reliance on oil and how we will cope with climate change.”

Last Light will be available on Peacock on Thursday, September 8.
