The official trailer, which premiered Wednesday (March 3), teased snippets of the nine bone-chilling conversations between loved ones that will leave listeners, both onscreen and off, hanging. Based on Timothée Hochet’s CANAL+ French series of the same name, Calls is an immersive television series that blends audio and abstract visuals to tell dark short-form stories through seemingly ordinary, unrelated phone calls that eerily find their point of connection. Fede Álvarez (Evil Dead, Don’t Breathe) directed the Apple Originals series in association with CANAL+ and in production with Studiocanal and Bad Hombre.
The star-studded cast of Calls also includes Nicholas Braun, Clancy Brown, Mark Duplass, Karen Gillan, Judy Greer, Paul Walter Hauser, Danny Huston, Riley Keough, Joey King, Stephen Lang, Jaeden Martell, Paola Nuñez, Edi Patterson, Danny Pudi, Ben Schwartz, Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Jennifer Tilly.
All nine episodes of the first season will premiere worldwide on Apple TV+ on Friday, March 19. The French-language version of Calls will premiere on CANAL+ in select markets. Apple TV+ will premiere the series under the title Llamadas, which will include custom Spanish-language graphics, in select Spanish-speaking markets in Latin America.
