Storyline, info and cast

On April 15, 2016 Sky1 has released a new criminal drama series The Five, created by acclaimed American author Harlan Coben. The series hails from Red Picture Company and is executive produced by Coben, Jonathan Leather, Danny Brocklehurst and Nicola Shindler. The first series is comprised of 10 episodes that air on a weekly basis.

The storyline revolves around the disappearance of Jesse, the younger brother of Mark (Tom Cullen). Mark, in turn, is one of the four friends who are The Five`s lead characters – besides Mark, there are Danny (O.T.Fagbenie), Slade (Lee Ingleby) and Pru (Sarah Solemani). Fast forward twenty years from the time of Jesse`s disappearance, and we see Danny become a police detective, who discovers the missing boy`s DNA at a murder scene. The plot goes to reveal everyone`s sordid secrets from the past as the search for Jesse takes the characters to places that they might not want to go.

Viewership and renewal prospects

The Five debuted to 1.21 million viewers, slipping to 750,000 by the fourth episode. The series has a reasonable 6.7/10 IMDb score, which is not brilliant, but also far from pointing at a complete flop, however, the reviewers are almost unanimous in deeming the series disappointing, emotionally detached and derivative. It is very unfortunate, since the British criminal dramas have had a brilliant winning streak recently with compelling hits like Happy Valley. We will probably soon find out whether the network is satisfied with the result of its efforts, and whether the name of the incredibly renowned writer is enough to carry The Five into another series. Stay tuned, and we`ll be sure to keep you updated on the fate of the series.
