How to watch Home Before Dark on Roku, Apple TV, and more

Home Before Dark is one of Apple TV+’s newest original series. It’s a mystery show produced by Paramount Television and Anonymous Content inspired by real events involving a 9-year old investigative journalist. The young journalist and her family move to a small lakeside town from New York City. When the girl discovers the community is concealing information about a cold case, she decides to investigate the matter, uncovering secrets that have long gone unsolved. 

When did Home Before Dark premiere? 

The first season of Home Before Dark premiered Friday, April 3rd — exclusively on Apple TV+. The first season of the series saw stars like Adrian Hough, Brooklynn Prince, Deric McCabe, Jibrail Nantambu, Jim Sturgess, and Joelle Carter. Every episode of the first season was directed by Jon M. Chu of Crazy Rich Asians, Now You See Me 2, and GI. Joe: Retaliation.

When will Home Before Dark Season 2 be released? 

Apple TV+ ordered a second season for the series before its premiere, however, no official release date has been provided. This move by Apple places Home Before Dark beside other successful Apple TV+ series like Dickinson, For All Mankind, and The Morning Show. The first season was another fantastic Apple TV+ entry into the increasingly competitive world of original programming. Apple has recently invested billions of dollars into its original content to compete with services like Netflix and Disney+
