Interviews: Emma Corrin, Brit Marling, and Zal Batmanglij talk A Murder At The End Of The World

We talk about the hit FX whodunit limited series with the star and showrunner/creators.

Last Updated on December 8, 2023

If you have not checked out the new FX series A Murder At The End Of The World yet, I highly encourage you to do so. Created by the team that brought the short-lived, fan-favorite Netflix series The OA, A Murder At The End Of The World is a mystery series that serves as a modernized whodunit in the vein of Agatha Christie. Following an isolated group at a remote location where a murder occurs, the series is a fascinating dual narrative featuring a stellar ensemble cast by Emma Corrin.

A Murder at the End of the World is a “mystery series with a new kind of detective at the helm — a Gen Z amateur sleuth and tech-savvy hacker named Darby Hart. A reclusive billionaire invites Darby and eight other guests to participate in a retreat at a remote and dazzling location. When one of the other guests is found dead, Darby must use all of her skills to prove it was murder against a tide of competing interests before the killer takes another life.”

Over the weekend, we shared our conversation with co-star Clive Owen, and now we have our interviews with star Emma Corrin and series creators Brit Marling and Zal Batmanglij. Corrin, recently the award-winning star of The Crown and next to be seen as the villain in Deadpool 3, talked about taking on the role of Darby Hart and where they found inspiration for the character. Creators, as well as writers and directors on the series, Brit Marling and Zal Batmanglij talked about what Gen Z means to them, how they came up with the story, and whether we could see further adventures of Darby Hart in the future. Check out the full interview in the embed above.

A Murder At The End Of The World premiered on November 17th on FX and Hulu.
