This article discusses the Netflix series The Watcher (2022), including the release date, time, synopsis, cast, and how to watch online.
Moving into a new house can be scary, and when someone in the neighborhood starts outing your secrets anonymously, it’s even scarier. Naomi Watts and Bobby Cannavale will soon learn as much in the upcoming Netflix seven-episode miniseries The Watcher, Ryan Murphy‘s latest project under his overall deal with the streamer.
Netflix series The Watcher synopsis
From Netflix, the official synopsis is as follows:
“After the Brannock family moves into what was supposed to be their suburban dream home, it quickly becomes a living hell. Ominous letters from someone calling themself “The Watcher” are just the beginning as the neighborhood’s sinister secrets come spilling out. Inspired by the true story of the infamous “Watcher” house in New Jersey.”
Our opinion of the premise
I am in for any Ryan Murphy series, so this killer premise only amps my excitement for the show. I also love that the series will be more of a thriller than straight-up horror, which is more up my alley. Also, the fact that it is inspired by a true story makes it even more chilling.

The series will be released globally on Netflix on Thursday, October 13th at 12 am PT. The series will have 7 episodes and will all be released at once.
