Read on to find out the latest updates on The Watcher.
Based upon a true story about a married couple who are harassed by a stalker called The Watcher after they have recently moved into their dream home, The Watcher stars Academy-nominated actress Naomi Watts and Emmy Award-winning actor Bobby Cannavale in leading roles. Sounds exciting, right? Unfortunately, The Watcher was not one among the array of movies fated for the Netflix releases in September. In fact, as Netflix Life mentions, it doesn’t even have a release date as of yet.
We do know that as per the last update on March 2, Naomi Watts mentioned that the filming for the show has now officially finished. The announcement was made through an Instagram post with a caption that hinted that the show is set to premiere on Netflix ‘later this year’. After this, there is no update. Until recently.
On September 9, Netflix dropped a humorous teaser and also announced a release window for this thrilling limited psychological series.

There’s a kooky older woman named Pearl (Mia Farrow) and her brother Jasper (Terry Kinney), who sneaks into the Brannock’s house and hides in their dumbwaiter. There’s Karen (Jennifer Coolidge), the realtor and an old acquaintance of Nora’s, who makes them feel like they don’t really belong, and nosy neighbours Mitch (Richard Kind) and Mo (Margo Martindale), who don’t seem to understand property lines. Their icy welcome quickly turns into a full-blown living hell when ominous letters from someone calling themself “The Watcher” start arriving, terrorizing the Brannocks to their breaking point as the neighbourhood’s sinister secrets come spilling out.”
