BBC Sets Reunion Cast


Matthew Gurney, Lara Peake, Anne-Marie Duff, Eddie Marsan and Rose Ayling-Ellis are set to star in the upcoming BBC thriller series Reunion.

Written by William Mager, Reunion is produced by Warp Films for BBC One and iPlayer. The majority of the show’s cast and many members of the crew are deaf or use British Sign Language (BSL), as the 4×60-minute title follows the journey of a deaf man determined to right his wrongs.

Reunion is supported by Screen Yorkshire. BBC Studios will distribute the series internationally.

Gurney said, “William’s scripts are electrifying, and it’s a privilege to bring Brennan to life in this gripping tale of revenge, redemption and reconciliation.”

Duff added, “I am genuinely thrilled to be a part of this very exciting production. It is rare to witness a narrative where the audience is taken on a journey with a very different set of senses. It’s about our need to acknowledge each other’s truths—both inside our own families and beyond. The team is so extraordinary. I feel very honored to be rubbing shoulders with them.”

Warp Films’ Mark Herbert commented, “Reunion stands as a testament to our commitment at Warp Films for genuine representation and thrilling inclusive storytelling that resonates with all audiences whilst amplifying the voices and talents of an often-overlooked community, both on- and off-screen.”

“It’s no surprise that William Mager’s layered, intelligent and utterly compelling scripts have attracted a cast and crew of such exceptional calibre to bring this story to the BBC,” said Lindsay Salt, director of BBC Drama. “A thriller like no other, this is a reunion you won’t want to miss.”

Caroline Cooper Charles, chief executive of Screen Yorkshire, said: “This fantastic cast underlines how extraordinarily excited we are about Reunion. Screen Yorkshire is so proud to support a show from homegrown talent that places inclusivity and representation at the heart of its storytelling and creative ambition.”
