Apple TV+ has given us another show that will send shivers down our spines—The Changeling.

The 2023 release tells the story of Emma, a young woman who tested her fate by visiting a forbidden lake in Brazil. There, she happened upon a mysterious woman who told her that three of her greatest wishes will come true, so long as she didn’t cut the red string tied on her wrist.

Naturally, our brave young woman knew better than to cut the string. However, when she meets a charming young man, Apollo, who convinces her that she doesn’t need to believe in the superstition, as he will grant all of her wishes, Emma severs the string.

Perhaps this couple has messed with something that exceeds their understanding, as they are now thrown into a world where nothing makes sense.

How will they right their wrongs? And if they do come to figure out what travesty has come upon them, will they make it out alive? All this and more will be revealed soon. But before you tune into the new release, allow us to tell you who you can expect to see.

Here’s who stars in The Changeling!
