Netflix is teaming up with Ozark producer, director, and actor Jason Bateman for a new limited series called Black Rabbit. Bateman will star in the series and feature Fantastic Beasts star Jude Law.

Jason Bateman will be directing the upcoming limited series. He dived into the world of directing after taking charge of several episodes of Netflix’s smash hit crime-drama Ozark. The scripts for Black Rabbit were written by Zach Baylin, who got wide acclaim for his script for the Will Smith starring movie King Richard, and his wife and creative partner Kate Susman, for whom Black Rabbit will be a screenwriting debut.

The drama, announced in October 2022, hails from Bateman and Michael Costigan’s Aggregate Films, Law and Ben Jackson’s Riff Raff Entertainment, Zach Baylin and Kate Susman’s Youngblood Pictures, and Automatik Entertainment.

This is one of many projects coming from Bateman and his production company. Other notable projects include Florida Man, Dark Wire, Here Comes the Flood, Movie Night, and many more.

Here’s everything else we know about Netflix’s Black Rabbit:

The premise for Black Rabbit is still being kept heavily under wraps. We aren’t expecting to learn more for several months.

It has been confirmed that Black Rabbit‘s director Jason Bateman will also star in it. Bateman’s recent credits include the highly acclaimed Netflix drama Ozark, which was just concluded in 2022. Bateman will be joined by Fantastic Beasts and Sherlock Holmes star Jude Law.

The pair is still the only confirmed cast member. However, with filming beginning in the Spring, we expect an announcement to be made within the next few months.


How many episodes will be in Black Rabbit?

The number of episodes for Netflix’s Black Rabbit hasn’t been disclosed, but a logical estimate would be between 6 and 10. It has been confirmed that each episode will be one hour long.


What’s the production status of Black Rabbit?

Official Production Status: Pre-production / Filming Scheduled (Last Updated: 14/02/2024)

One of our sources has revealed that filming has still been scheduled for the Black Rabbit, which is due to begin on April 15th, 2024. Filming will run for several months before ending on September 25th, 2024.

It must be noted that all filming dates are subject to change.


What’s the Netflix release date for Black Rabbit?

Since filming isn’t scheduled to conclude by late September 2024, a 2024 release is incredibly unlikely. A 2025 release, sometime in the Spring or Summer, is likely.
