Development

In July 2019, Deadline Hollywood reported that Apple was developing an English-language version of award-winning Israeli thriller False Flag, created by Maria Feldman and Amit Cohen, to be produced by Keshet Productions, the same company behind the original Hebrew-language series.[1] Deadline Hollywood, in March 2020, confirmed that Apple put in a order for the series, to be directed by Chris Long, with Rob Williams serving as showrunner. Both will also executive produce along with Howard Burch, Avi Nir, Anna Winger, Maria Feldman, Amit Cohen and Liat Benasuly.[2]

Casting

Along with the series order in March 2020, Uma Thurman was cast to star in Suspicion, with Kunal Nayyar, Noah Emmerich, Georgina Campbell, Elyes Gabel, Elizabeth Henstridge, and Angel Coulby also joining the cast.[2] In November 2020, it was reported that Tom Rhys Harries had joined the cast.[3]

Filming

As of March 2020, production had reportedly begun in the United Kingdom on Suspicion, but had to be suspended due the COVID-19 pandemic.[4] In September 2020, Apple was reportedly preparing to restart filming in England, with filming confirmed to have started in November 2020 in Brixham.[5][6] Filming also occurred in New York City in May 2021, with several cast members being seen on set in Central Park, Washington Square Park, and the Upper East Side.[7] Season one concluded filming on May 18, 2021.[8]

Release

The eight-part series will premiere with two episodes being released on Apple TV+ on Friday, 4 February 2022, with the remaining six episodes airing every Friday thereafter.[9]
