Painkiller Release Date

Netflix hasn’t revealed an official release date for the new series, but filming is set to complete in November, so we may expect it in early 2022.

Other details, such as episode numbers and run times for each episode, are still unknown. We’ll find it in a few days.

Painkiller Plot and Cast

The opioid crisis that has gripped America since the 1990s will be the focus of Painkiller. “A tragedy decades in the making, the opioid crisis has become one of the most terrible public health problems of our time,” program creator Newman said of the series’ approach to the crisis.

Unlike other drug epidemics that began with underground manufacturing and covert smuggling, this epidemic began with a doctor’s prescription, was approved by government regulators, and was promoted by a family-owned pharmaceutical giant that made billions while betraying patients’ and the public’s trust.”

Orange is the New Black actress Uzo Aduba and Ferris Bueller’s Day Off star Matthew Broderick have already joined the cast.

Broderick will play Richard Sackler, a member of the affluent Sackler family and a top executive at Purdue Pharma, while Aduba will play Edie, the chief investigator in the Purdue case.

West Duchovny (The Magicians) will play Purdue sales team new recruit, Shannon, Dina Shihabi (Jack Ryan) will play seasoned Purdue sales rep Britt, and John Rothman (Ghostbusters) will play Mortimer Sackler, Purdue Pharma co-owner.
