Adapted from the eponymous book by Sarah Perry, The Essex Serpent tells the story of Cora, a Londoner who leaves her abusive husband to settle in the village of Aldwinter. She discovers a local superstition that affirms the existence of a mythical creature known as the Essex Serpent. The animal would have returned to the region.

To portray the main character, Apple TV+ calls on Claire Danes (Homeland). She will give the reply to Tom Hiddleston, Frank Dillane (Sense 8), Hayley Squires (The Extraordinary Life of Louis Wain) and Clemence Poésy (Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire).

The opportunity for viewers to discover the atmosphere of this fantastic series. Halfway between horror and historical fresco, The Essex Serpent has what it takes to be a great success on Apple TV+. Since its launch in November 2019, the platform has already offered many critically acclaimed productions.

She even offered the title of best film at the Oscars 2022 with the adaptation of The Aries Family : CODA. If the platform is far from having as many subscribers as its direct competitors, and maintains the mystery on this subject, it can boast of having acquired criticism for its cause. Its strategy of only offering new serial or film productions is certainly against the grain, but allows it to consolidate its reputation as a demanding platform.
