Aron Piper is developing a remarkable career in film and television, especially after becoming known to the general public with the character of Ander Muñoz from Élite. Now he returns to Netflix, this time as the lead actor, to star in The Silence, the new series with which the American platform hopes to keep us hooked to the TV during its eight thrilling episodes. So that you don’t miss anything, we explain here all the keys to this new series.
Silence tells the story of Sergio Ciscar, a young man who murdered his parents six years ago and has not said a word since. Now of age and having served his sentence, he is released and Ana Dussuel, a young psychiatrist, must determine his potential danger to himself and society by secretly observing him day and night, thus violating all his constitutional rights. Something that promises us a tough story, full of tense moments.
In fact, this is something that the creator and producer of the series himself, Aitor Gabilondo, wanted to emphasize when talking about the film. He himself has declared that “silence is a psychological thriller about the monsters that silences and unspoken words engender. The investigation into the personality of an inexplicably violent young man, the reckless approach of a psychologist to the mind of a young man tired of being observed from the outside”.
As mentioned above, the series stars Aaron Piper as Sergio, the young killer who is released from prison after six years without uttering a word. The young psychiatrist Ana is played by the actress Almudena Amor, who appeared in important roles in recent successful films such as Fernando León de Aranoa’s El buen patrón and Paco Plaza’s La abuela. Likewise, in supporting roles, we find other well-known actors such as Aitor Luna and Pep Tosar, giving a production that, even so, seems to carry the bulk of the acting weight on the shoulders of its great young talents.
The author of the series is Aitor Gabilondo, who although by name may not be so well known, it is easy to know who he is as soon as you name some of the series. Creator of El Príncipe, Allí abajo, Los Borbones: Una Familia Real and most particularly, Patria, a series that was a huge success upon its premiere on HBO adapting the novel of the same name by Fernando Aramburu, Gabilondo is a name that ensures that the series has the potential to be a hit.
Release date and where to see it
Silence will be available from 9 a.m. Spanish time on May 19, 2023, will consist of eight episodes that will be released in one sitting and will be available on Netflix. So you have no excuse not to spend a weekend of Netflix and blanket if you want to watch this promising thriller from one of the most interesting young actors of today.
