We've had Bad MomsBad Girls, and Bad Teachers; now it's time for Bad Sisters! While all these shows and movies weren't created from the same minds, the concept has proved to be successful, time after time. Audiences love misbehaved characters who go against social norms and behave outrageously. Bad Sisters, the new Apple TV+ series, fits the bill perfectly, set to have us laughing all the way through the darkest of times. Released on August 19th, the first four episodes are already available to stream at your convenience. Here's what you can expect...

As the title suggests, the series follows the lives of five sisters: Grace, Ursula, Eva, Bibi, and Becka. After a close-family death marks all of them as suspects, their close-knit bond is put to the ultimate test. As we come to understand that all the sisters had motives to kill the victim, the suspense grows with each episode - who did it, and was it even one of them? Set in both London and Dublin, the background perfectly sets the scene for the thrill and tension of the plot. That being said, plenty of comedic moments are sprinkled throughout, as we catch a glimpse of each sister's hilariously foolish attempts at murder.

The trailer, released at the end of July, gives Big Little Lies energy with a darkly comedic twist. As for the cast, it's clear that it's a real ensemble performance. The five sisters are played by Anne-Marie Duff (The Salisbury Poisonings), Eve Birthistle (The Last Kingdom), Sarah Greene (Dublin Murders), Eve Hewson (Behind Her Eyes), and Sharon Horgan (The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent). Alongside them, Claes Bang, Brian Gleeson, Daryl McCormack, Assaad Bouab, and  Saise Quinn will play the supporting characters.
