Beware the Ides of March in Official Trailer for Hulu's Into the Dark: Treehouse
The past will always come back for what it's due.
By Chris Morse
Update: The April Fool's Day episode has been moved up to April 1st, so the premiere date has been updated in this article accordingly.
The next episode of Hulu's Into the Dark is less than two weeks away and this one is themed around the Ides of March. The first official trailer for the episode, titled Treehouse, just made its debut and it doesn't shy away from showing off some of the creepiness that awaits us in this new episode, which includes Satanic imagery, masked (or just plain demonic-looking) killers, and plenty more. You may also recognize the lead actor as a very familiar face from HBO's hit series, Westworld, as he goes toe to toe with forces that seem hell-bent on destroying him.
Into the Dark: Treehouse follows the story of a celebu-chef, Peter Rake, who tries to escape a recent wave of negative tabloid exposure by retreating to his family’s vacation estate in the woods. However, the ghosts of his past are everywhere and debts will be settled as he soon realizes that a woman’s place is anywhere she chooses to be, if he survives.
The episode is written and directed by James Roday and stars Jimmi Simpson (Westworld, Black Mirror), Mary McCormack (Deep Impact, 1408), Shaunette Renee Wilson (Black Panther, Billions), Maggie Lawson (Gamer, Lethal Weapon TV series), Stephanie Beatriz (Brooklyn Nine-Nine), Julianna Guill (Friday the 13th remake), Michael Weston, Amanda Walsh, Sutton Foster, and Cass Bugge. Treehouse will arrive on Hulu on March 1st, 2019.
We also recently shared details for the upcoming April Fool's Day and Mother's Day episodes, which you can catch up on below in case you missed them.
April will bring us an episode called I’m Just Fucking With You, which will be themed around April’s Fools Day and tells the story of a man and his sister on the way to a family wedding who endure a night of increasingly frightening practical jokes during a one-night stay at a secluded motel.
The episode will star Keir O’Donnell (Wedding Crashers), Hayes MacArthur (Super Troopers 2), and Jessica McNamee (The Meg), and is written by Gregg Zehenter and Scott Barkan, with Adam Mason directing and Deftones' Chino Moreno composing. Into the Dark: I’m Just Fucking With You will premiere on April 1st, 2019.
In May, we will get a Mother’s Day story called All That We Destroy and this one is sounding wild so far. The episode will follow a geneticist who fears that her son may be becoming a serial killer, so she goes on to create a group of clones in an attempt to cure him of his psychopathic tendencies, thus allowing him to relive the murder of his first victim.
Starring in the episode is Samantha Mathis (American Psycho), Israel Broussard (Happy Death Day), Aurora Perrineau (Truth or Dare, Passengers), Dora Madison (Dexter, Friday Night Lights), and Frank Whaley (Pulp Fiction). Into the Dark: All That We Destroy is written by Sean Keller and Jim Agnew, with Chelsea Stardust directing, and will arrive on May 3rd, 2019.
We exclusively revealed the aforementioned April Fool’s Day episode, I’m Just Fucking With You, back in October, along with another episode titled School Spirit, which should arrive by the end of the summer. That’s all we have for now but this series will surely bring us plenty more holiday horror fun as the calendar pages turn throughout the year.
Hulu’s Into the Dark continues with Treehouse arriving on March 1st, 2019. The first five feature-length episodes are currently streaming, so there’s no reason not to get caught up. Otherwise, stay tuned to Dead Entertainment for more coverage on this series in the coming months.
