We're listening...

Siobhán McSweeney is set to star in a new mystery thriller series from best-selling author Anthony Horowitz and we are here for it!

Joining the Derry Girls actress in the six-part series, entitled Nine Bodies in a Mexican Morgue, are Eric McCormack (Will & Grace), David Ajala (Star Trek: Discovery), Lydia Wilson (The Swarm), Peter Gadiot (Yellowjackets), Ólafur Darri Ólafsson (The Tourist), Adam Long (Happy Valley), and Jan Le (The Capture).

The story itself, follows a small group of passengers, crew and pilot, after their plane crashes in the Mexican jungle.

“All the bodies are recovered and placed in a morgue… but it turns out that only one of them died in the crash,” revealed the BBC synopsis.

“The other passengers were murdered afterwards, each one in a unique way. But by whom? And why?

“As the story unfolds in flashback, we meet the survivors as they fight against the heat, a shortage of supplies, the many dangers of the jungle… and each other.”

Yep, we are hooked already.

We’re also promised a series of shocks and a “jaw-dropping” reveal so if that’s not a reason to stick around and tune in, we don’t know what is!

Sadly, we don’t have a release date yet for when we can expect to see the show on our screens.

So until then, another rewatch of Derry Girls anyone?
