The Third Day is an upcoming drama television miniseries written by Dennis Kelly.


Chronicles the individual journeys of a man and woman who arrive on a mysterious island at different times.

The Third Day is a story told over six episodes and in two distinct halves. The first – ‘Summer’, directed by Marc Munden (National Treasure, Utopia), sees Sam (played by Jude Law), a man drawn to a mysterious island off the British coast where he encounters a group of islanders set on preserving their traditions at any cost.

The second – ‘Winter’, directed by Philippa Lowthorpe (The Crown, Three Girls), follows Helen (played by Naomie Harris), a strong-willed outsider who comes to the island seeking answers, but whose arrival precipitates a fractious battle to decide its fate.[1]



The series was commissioned in June 2019, with the announcement that Jude Law was cast in the lead role. Marc Munden was hired to direct the first three episodes, with Dennis Kelly writing.[2] In July, Katherine Waterston, Paddy Considine and Emily Watson were added to the cast.[3][4] Naomie Harris and John Dagleish were added in August, with Philippa Lowthorpe hired to direct three episodes of the series.[5][6]

Filming began on the series in July 2019 in the United Kingdom.[7]
