The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle is not coming to Netflix after all. The streaming service has cancelled its plans for the series from writer Sophie Petzal. The series was announced in December 2020, but it never went into production, per Variety.
The Seven Deaths series was described as a “high-concept murder mystery set during a weekend party at a crumbling mansion where the narrator must repeat the same day over and over again until he can identify the killer of the beautiful young heiress, Evelyn Hardcastle, and break the cycle.”
The series is based on a best-selling 2018 novel by Stuart Turton. The English author announced the cancellation on social media on January 12th, but Turton later deleted the tweet. He said the following:
“Alright pals, I come bearing bad news. Netflix has canned its plans to make a telly adaptation of ‘Seven Deaths.’ Sad news, but thems the breaks. We’re looking for another home for it, but the focus at the minute is making sure it’s f******g brilliant when it does arrive.”
