Bad Sisters promises a ‘delicious blend of dark comedy and thriller’ when it arrives on Apple Tv+ in 2022. Catastrophe writer Sharon Horgan’s latest offering, Bad Sisters tests the limit of family bonds as it stars Sharon herself alongside The Salisbury Poisonings actor Anne-Marie Duff, Eve Hewson (Behind Her Eyes), Sarah Greene (Dublin Murders) and Eva Birthistle (The Last Kingdom). It follows the five Garvey sisters who are forever bound together by the premature loss of their parents and a promise to always protect one another.

Bad Sisters release date 

Bad Sisters is a 10-part series that will premiere globally on Apple TV+ from Friday August 19 2022, with the first two episodes, followed by one new episode weekly, every Friday through to October 14 2022.

Bad Sisters plot 

Quite a lot of the Bad Sisters plot is still tightly under wraps but we do know that the series has been adapted from the Belgian series Clan and will follow the highs and lows of the five Garvey sisters. 

These siblings, who were orphaned early, have vowed to always protect one another, no matter how tricky life can get. And we’re sure that such a well-meaning promise can only lead to chaos.
