Rabbit Hole: Kiefer Sutherland returns to TV in the tense teaser trailer for new Paramount series

Sutherland returns with major Jack Bauer vibes as he fights against a conspiracy involving higher powers of which he could never imagine.


Kiefer Sutherland returns to television in a new paranoid spy thriller from Paramount+. The Hollywood Reporter has the new details of Sutherland’s new series as a teaser gets released. The new trailer for the drama showcases the actor in familiar territory as the former 24 and Designated Survivor star is once again caught up in conspiracies where there is no clear enemy or ally and you can’t trust anyone.

Sutherland plays a character named John Weir, who has been described as a master of deception. Weir finds himself approached by a mysterious figure, played by Charles Dance of Game of Thrones, who tells him about the world he doesn’t know he’s in when he is “framed for murder by powerful forces who have the ability to influence and control populations.”

Kiefer Sutherland is joined by a cast featuring Charles Dance, Meta Golding, Enid Graham, Jason Butler Harner, Rob Yang and Walt Klink. Rabbit Hole is brought to us by Sutherland as he executive produces the new Paramount show with the writing and directing duo of NBC’s This is Us, John Requa and Glenn Ficarra, along with Charlie Gogolak, Designated Survivor’s Suzan Bymel, and Hunt Baldwin. The political thriller will have a short season of eight episodes that has been produced by the Paramount Global’s CBS Studios.

This series is the latest leading role in a television prohect for Sutherland after he starred in the ABC show Designated Survivor. After the series ran its course on the network, it emigrated onto the streaming world as a Netflix original program. That show would end in 2019 after three seasons, and Sutherland would then follow that up with a remake of The Fugitive for the notoriously defunct Quibi service. He then starred in the Amazon Prime feature The Contractor with Chris Pine as well as appearing in the prestige Showtime series, The First Lady.

Rabbit Hole launches March 26 with two episodes. After that, the subsequent episodes will be releasing weekly on Sundays on Paramount+ in the U.S. and Canada, then on the following day in countries where the streamer is available.
