This article discusses the Netflix series Unsuspicious including the premise, release date, cast, and trailer.

It has certainly been an action-packed August at Netflix towers, with an already impressive number of new releases streaming on the platform. Also due this month is the Brazillian comedy series, Unsuspicious,  providing a humorous twist on the murder mystery genre.   

Unsuspicious series premise

After all being conned by the same rich, mysterious playboy, three women and their families head to his mansion to get answers. Unfortunately, they find themselves stuck there when he’s found dead — and they’re all suspects in the investigation. Over the course of the investigation, secrets and lies emerge as our suspects vie for position among each other.  

Our opinion of the premise

A reasonably strong premise that sets up a whodunnit comedy in the vein of Knives Out. Will the high concept sustain itself throughout a whole season? There seems to be plenty of potential for laughs, with lots of twists and turns along the way.

Unsuspicious series  release date

Is there a trailer?

At this moment in time, there’s no official trailer for the Netflix series. But we’ll keep an eye out for you!

It certainly looks like Unsuspicious blends high concept with high camp! There promises to be plenty of laughs, and with some of the strongest performers on Brazillian TV in the cast, all the ingredients are there for a show with a lot of potential indeed. While there are lots to be optimistic about, this sort of show can be difficult to execute well, and it is easy to overplay the comedy and end up being silly. How well the team does that remains to be seen, but we’re excited to find out.
