The Resort is shaping up to be the latest binge-worthy murder mystery on the Peacock streaming platform, and it's dropping this week.

The show follows a married, but childless couple as they accidentally find themselves investigating the disappearance of a young boy at their resort 15 years prior. Watch below:

The official synopsis reads: "A multi-generational, coming-of-age love story disguised as a fast-paced mystery about the disappointment of time.

"An anniversary trip puts a marriage to the test when the couple finds themselves embroiled in one of the Yucatan's most bizarre unsolved mysteries that took place fifteen years prior."

Viewers of the trailer were quick to express their excitement about the upcoming series, which stars Cristin Milioti as Emma and William Jackson Harper as Noah.

"I love the two lead actors; I'm excited for the show!" wrote one viewer, while a second added: "This actually does feel like a spiritual successor to Palm Springs."

"This looks pretty sick," remarked a third. "Some Palm Springs vibes with extra drama."

Harper said of the on-screen couple to NME: "I think that [Noah's] content and fine with being just content as opposed to happy," he says.

"Whereas I think Emma might be looking for excitement and that rush again."

Well, one thing is for sure, if excitement is what Emma wants, she definitely finds it at the resort.

Screenwriter Andy Siara had this to say about the show, which he said blends a lot of different genres, so there's likely to be something for everyone.

As reported by SYFY, he explained that The Resort is "the beginning of one love story framed by the beginning of the end of another love story. Which is which between these two [timelines], that's for you to see when you watch it.

"There's a little bit of a disaster movie in here, there's some conspiracy thriller goofball stuff in here. It's my Letterboxd top five-star movies or my Blu-Ray collection. [It's] my favourite movies from 1990 through 2022 thrown in a blender with some thoughts about the curse of nostalgia and the true crime industrial complex."

While the show's genre might be complicated on the surface, Harper said that as an actor that's exactly why he was interested in it.

He explained: "The fact it was so hard to pin down and hard to know what was going to be the most important [element] in each scene, that was very intriguing to me."

The first three episodes of The Resort are available 29th July on Peacock exclusively on Sky and NOW, with new episodes dropping weekly.
