Home Before Dark is a mystery/drama on the real-life adventures of a nine-year-old girl who solved a murder. It’s coming to Apple TV+ this spring, and a new trailer gives the first look at it.

Watch it now:

Apple says Home Before Dark is “a mystery inspired by the reporting of a real nine-year-old journalist. When a young girl and her family move back to the small town her father left behind, her pursuit of the truth leads to the unearthing of a long-buried cold case.”

It’s based on the story of Hilde Lysiak, who although still a pre-teen wanted to be a reporter. She started her own newspaper in Selinsgrove, PA, the Orange Street News, which she’s still publishing.

Apple already picked up season 2 of this show.

Apple TV+ scheduled the global debut of Home Before Dark for Friday, April 3.

Watching the ten-episode first season, as well all the other shows on Apple TV+, requires $4.99 a month subscription. But anyone who recently bought selected Apple devices can enjoy free for a year. And for everyone else, there’s a one-week free trial.
