When does Amazon's The Rig start?

Amazon have been keeping quiet about a release date for the new drama.

Filming started for the series in March 2021, so it could be a fair few months until it finally hits our screens.

Keep an eye on this page for more details.

What is Amazon's The Rig about?

The creepy six-part series is set onboard the Kishorn Bravo oil rig, located off the Scottish coast. When an eerie fog rolls over, the oil crew rig are cut off from the mainland.

The new series is directed by John Strickland of Line of Duty and Bodyguard fame.

So far, Martin Compston and Mark Bonnar have been announced as part of the cast.

The official synopsis reads: "When the crew are due to return to the mainland, a mysterious and all-enveloping fog rolls through and they find themselves cut off from all communication with the shore and the outside world.

"As they endeavour to discover what's driving this force, bonds are broken, allegiances formed and generational fault lines exposed.

"The crew of the Bravo will be driven to the limits of both their loyalties and their endurance, into a confrontation with forces beyond their imagination."

Martin Compston plays communications officer Fulmer, part of a crew trapped on an oil rig in the North Sea as a mysterious fog surrounds them.

Fulmer is fascinated with codes and feels more at home in his radio room than joining in the banter with his workmates.

Derek Wax, Managing Director of filming company Wild Mercury said; “The Rig is a character-driven, epic thriller, full of heart-grabbing action and bold, original ideas, and we are delighted to be working with Amazon Prime Video in bringing it to life.

"David Macpherson captures life on a North Sea oil rig with extraordinary authenticity and it’s been exciting to work with him, director John Strickland and our creative team in realizing the scale and vision of this world."

How can I watch The Rig?

When the series eventually arrives, it will be available to watch on Amazon Prime.

Prime membership costs £7.99 per month if you choose a monthly subscription.

You can also opt for an annual subscription costing £79 per year, which works out at £6.58 per month.
