Cable network TNT has officially confirmed a new release date for ‘The Lazarus Project’, an action movie that they recently acquired. Sky Although TNT and TBS shelved it along with two other projects due to the Warner Bros. Discovery restructuring, it was originally set to premiere on January 8 of this year. The series will reportedly debut on June 4 and is currently one of TNT’s few surviving originals.
The Lazarus Project depicts the tale of George (Paapa Essiedu), a member of the eponymous clandestine group with the ability to turn back time in the event of an impending catastrophe on Earth. George must decide what he’s ready to give up in order to change the course of history when an accident claims the life of his cherished wife. The series’ teaser trailer suggests that he would do all it takes and put up with any resistance to regain what he lost.

The show has so far been a success in its home country of the United Kingdom. It has been compared to both Doctor Who and Spooks. It received excellent reviews and record-breaking viewership for Sky Max, leading to the renewal for a second season back in August. With almost 1.7 million viewers over 28 days, it quickly rose to the position of second-highest-viewed platform original at the time of release. The show’s creator Joe Barton has hinted that additional former agents will emerge to undermine the organization’s charitable objective by utilising their powers to travel back in time and stop them. As a result, the show only intends to get more ambitious in its forthcoming season.
Essiedu, nominated for an Emmy and a BAFTA for his work on I May Destroy You, stars in The Lazarus Project alongside Anjli Mohindra, Tom Burke, Caroline Quentin, Rudi Dharmalingam, and Charly Clive. The eight hour-long episodes of the show are helmed by three different directors: Laura Scrivano, Akaash Meeda, and Marco Kreuzpaintner (episodes 1-4). Paul Gilbert, Julian Murphy, Johnny Capps, and Barton executive produce for Sky Studios while Urban Myth Films produces with them.
