True crime documentaries and series have gained immense popularity in the last few years. Various streaming platforms are producing their shows, which are either depictions of real-life events or documentaries. The latest one on the list is Candy, a true-crime miniseries.
In this article, I’ll take you through everything you need to know about the upcoming miniseries, including the release date, where to watch, plot, and more. So let’s just get to it.
Candy is a true-crime mini-series based on real-life events surrounding Candy and Betty: Two women in the 1980s who were best friends before one of them was murdered. It is a five-episode series premiering on Hulu from May 9th to May 13th.
Candy Trailer is as chilling as the real-life events the show is based on. It’s the answer to the question, what happens when you make a grave mistake and try to cover it up with something even worse.
The background score is eerie, and the montage of shots makes it abundantly clear what we’re going in for. Yet, despite giving all the essential details, the trailer still seems enticing because the answer to how it happened remains unknown.
Besides this, the entire backdrop of the 1980s is depicted well. The fashion sense, the homes, and the whole colour palette seem on point and add the necessary authenticity to immerse one in this tale of friendship and betrayal. Overall, the show looks promising.
Cast and Characters
Jessica Biel plays Candy Montgomery, and Melanie Lynskey plays her friend Betty. Most of the trailer is focused only on the two of them besides Betty’s husband. Considering the show is just five episodes long, we might see a similar screen-time for all of them.
The look of Jessica and Melanie is incredible, and both of them are spitting images of the real-life people, Candy and Betty. While we must watch the show to see how they perform and how close it can get to reality, it is safe to say that in the trailer, Jessica Biel seems to give me the chills, and I’m pretty intrigued to see how it all plays out.
Plot: What is Candy About?
Candy has a relatively simple yet gritty plot. In the 1980s, Candy Montgomery was having an extramarital affair with her close friend, Betty’s husband. Later on, Betty was found murdered and thus began a case of whodunnit.
While there are numerous other real-life details that are intriguing, I will save them for you to watch the show and enjoy. CBS has previously covered the case through a TV movie, A Killing in a Small Town. It was released way back in 1990, and you can check that one out too.
Release Date and Where to Watch
Candy will be streaming on the Hulu platform on May 9th. It is a five-episode mini-series and will last till May 13th. Every night an episode will air on the platform, and you wouldn’t have to wait for more than 24 hours to know what happens next.
You can either watch one episode every night or binge them all together on May 13th. It is a wildly fascinating case, and the trailer has all the elements a good true-crime series should have. So add it to your must-watch list and catch it on May 9th.
