Departure is your next must-watch mystery on DStv

Departure has the makings of a great mystery, including an all-star cast and enough conspiracy theories to keep you guessing.

This six-part series is set to be one of the best dramas of the year, with a plot that will hook you from the first scene until the very end – and we guarantee you won’t see the twists coming. Here’s what you need to know before the first episode airs.

What is Departure about?

When an aeroplane goes missing while flying over the Atlantic Ocean, everyone has a theory, and it’s up to aviation investigator Kendra Malley to reveal the truth. Did the pilot commit suicide? Was it an act of terrorism? Or something supernatural? And, most importantly, can Kendra and her team prevent it from happening again?

Who’s in the cast?

Two award-winning actors lead the way. Emmy Award-winning Archie Panjabi from The Good Wife stars as Kendra, while Academy Award winner Christopher Plummer (All the Money in the World) plays her boss and mentor, Howard Lawson. Other stars to look out for include Sasha Roiz (Grimm), Claire Forlani (Hawaii Five-0), Peter Mensah (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) and Shazad Latif (Star Trek: Discovery).

Why you’ll love Departure

If you’re a fan of missing-plane conspiracy dramas like Lost and Manifest, Departure is a definite must-watch. You’ll also enjoy it if thrillers like Captain Phillips or disaster flicks like Geostorm and Last Passenger intrigue you.
