The Girl Before on BBC One is based on the hit novel of the same name by author JP Delaney. The limited series will see the timelines of two women with “unnerving” similarities intertwine as they move into the same house three years apart. But what is happening to them and why have they been chosen to live in the new glamorous property?
The official synopsis for The Girl Before reads: “The Girl Before tells the story of Jane, who gets the chance to move into a beautiful, ultra-minimalist house designed by an enigmatic architect.
“There’s just one catch: the occupants must abide by his list of exacting rules.
“Jane starts to feel the house changing her in unexpected ways, but when she makes the shocking discovery about her predecessor, Emma, she’s forced to confront unnerving similarities.
“As the two women’s timelines interweave, Jane begins to question if her fate will be the same as the girl before…”
As well as the show’s unsettling plot, there is the all-star cast to look forward to.
The role of Jane has been taken on by actress Gugu Mbatha-Raw who currently plays Judge Ravonna Renslayer in Disney+’s Loki.
She will star opposite Jessica Plummer who most recently portrayed Chantelle Atkins in BBC One soap opera EastEnders.
Actor David Oyelowo who has been in Spooks, Selma and The Water Man is the architect who welcomes Jane and Emma into the house.
What time does The Girl Before come out?
The Girl Before will be premiering on BBC One on Sunday, December 19 at 9pm.
The limited series is made up of four episodes with a new instalment airing consecutively this week at the same time.

The Girl Before is also going to be made available to those in America but at a later date.

As of yet, an official US release date for The Girl Before hasn’t been announced.
Ahead of the UK release, Oyelowo opened up about this latest part.
He told Sky News: “It was worrying for me, not only connecting to the creepiness, but also there were just aspects of his character.
“I’m quite a neat freak, and there’s one moment in particular where I think it’s a split-screen where Gugu is putting up her clothes very neatly and Jessica’s character is just throwing them in the top shelf, and I’m so horrified by Jessica’s side of the screen.
“There were definitely moments like that, where I was like, ‘maybe I should go and see the therapist’.”
The Girl Before will start on Sunday, December 19, at 9pm on BBC One.
