Ragdoll – Release date, casting members, storyline, first look pictures, and everything we know

Ragdoll is an action-packed criminal thriller starring Henry Lloyd-Hughes, Thalissa Teixeira, and Lucy Hale as investigators on the hunt for a deranged serial murderer. Six individuals have been killed, dissected, and stitched into the shape of one hideous body – called ‘Ragdoll’ – in the six-episode drama from the makers of Killing Eve. DS Nathan Rose, DI Emily Baxter, and the unit’s new recruit, DC Lake Edmunds, have been assigned to the horrifying case. So far, here’s all we know about the upcoming serial killer drama Ragdoll, including some interesting first look images and early American release date.

What’s the Release Date for Ragdoll?

According to AMC+’s official press release, “Ragdoll” will premiere on the streaming service in late 2021. Although first-look pictures for “Ragdoll” have been revealed, no official release date has been declared. However, given that the photos will be released in August, the time range to which “late 2021” refers is rapidly approaching. As a result, we may expect “Ragdoll” to premiere in the autumn or early winter of 2021. With the first photos already out, a trailer should be available soon, maybe by mid-September.

If this happens, we may expect AMC+ to launch in October or November. Given that “Ragdoll” is in the crime thriller and dark comedy genres, AMC+ might arrange the show’s release date to coincide with Halloween to give an extra disturbing dimension to the show.

Aside from that, it’s unknown whether all six episodes of “Ragdoll” will be published in one block to allow viewers to binge-watch, or if they’ll be released week by week to keep fans guessing. AMC+’s release strategy plans are likely to be revealed around the time the first teaser is published.

Who will be casting for Ragdoll?

Lucy Hale, an actress who has previously appeared in dark, suspenseful television dramas, leads the cast of “Ragdoll.” In March 2021, Hale was announced as a member of the “Ragdoll” cast. According to Deadline, Hale will portray DC Lake Edmunds, the newest member of a London-based investigation squad. Despite her recent appearances in a variety of high-profile films and TV programs, Hale is best recognized for her seven-season journey as Aria Montgomery on Freeform’s “Pretty Little Liars.” Hale has been in horror films such as “Truth or Dare” and “Fantasy Island,” as well as the short-lived “Riverdale” spinoff “Katy Keene” after concluding on “PLL” in 2017.

Henry Lloyd-Hughes, best known to American viewers for his supporting role in Netflix’s thriller “The Irregulars,” will co-star with Hale in “Ragdoll” in April 2021, alongside “Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs and Shaw” alum Thalisa Teixeira (via Deadline). According to Deadline, Lloyd-Hughes will portray DS Nathan Rose, a detective who was “just restored to the London Met,” while Teixeira will play DI Emily Baxter, “[Rose’s] best friend and supervisor.”

Expected Plotline

The official narrative of “Ragdoll” was disclosed in February via a press release from AMC+ and, later, THR. According to AMC+, “Ragdoll” would center on a heinous crime involving “six individuals [who] had been killed, mutilated, and stitched into the shape of one horrific body – called the ‘Ragdoll.’”

DS Nathan Rose (Lloyd-Hughes), DI Emily Baxter (Teixeira), and DC Lake Edmunds are tasked with solving the heinous crime. “While these three are investigating the murder, “the ‘Ragdoll Killer taunts the cops by providing them a list of his future victims, including Rose’s name.” And with those victims to protect, our heroes are quickly subjected to severe public scrutiny,” according to the press release.

According to the description, “Ragdoll” will combine the horror of murders seen in the cult-hit NBC program “Hannibal” with the sense of comedy found in “Killing Eve.” The latter should be easy to execute, given that “Ragdoll” is produced by the same firm that produces the popular BBC America show. AMC+ describes “Ragdoll” as a “gruesomely creative serial killer thriller” that “captures the interesting but imperfect companions grappling with the effects of institutionalization and trauma.”
