Matthew Fox is returning to TV in the upcoming Peacock series Last Light. What is the thriller about? Let’s take a look at what to expect.

It’s hard to believe that Matthew Fox hasn’t been on our TV screens for a few years. After Lost, he took a break, but that break is now over. He’s returning in Last Light, a thriller coming to Peacock very soon.

The series has a great cast. Over the course of five episodes, we’ll see Joanne Froggatt, Taylor Fay, Amber Rose Revah, Tom Wlaschiha, and Hakeem Jomah among the cast.

What is Last Light about?

The Peacock series is based on the book of the same name by Alex Scarrow*. It takes audiences through an apocalyptic world where oil no longer functions the way it should. Everything comes to a halt as communication and power fail.

Fox plays Andy Yeats, a petro-chemist who knows just how dependent the world is on oil. He knows the trouble to come, and now his worst fears are coming true. The problem is he’s stuck in the Middle East while his family is back home in London and in Paris. He needs to find a way back to his family while the world goes crazy. Who would have thought more than distance would separate the family?
