If it’s nerve-shredding true crime chills you’re after, look no further. This highly-anticipated FX show stars Andrew Garfield in the real-life account of a double murder in 1980s Utah, which uncovered dark truths about a fundamentalist Mormon sect. The first episodes are available now. Below we explain how to watch Under the Banner of Heaven online, with a Hulu subscription in the US.
Academy Award-winning writer Dustin Lance Black brings Jon Krakauer’s best-selling book to our screens, backed by big-name producers like Ron Howard and Brian Glazer, and featuring an equally starry cast.
It’s lead by the boyish Garfield as Mormon Jeb Pyre, a detective and family man whose religious beliefs are rattled when a mother and infant child are murdered. Investigating the tragedy alongside cynical partner Bill Taba (Gil Birmingham), they discover some shocking truths about the origins of the LDS religion and its more fanatical members.
The series boasts an incredible ensemble cast. Daisy Edgar-Jones plays the ill-fated Brenda, a Mormon with more progressive values, while the conservative Lafferty family include Billy Howle as her husband Alan, a scarily good Wyatt Russell, and Sam Worthington as his extremist brother.
So, steel yourself for this thought-provoking true-life crime series and get ready to stream all 7-episodes with our guide on how to watch Banner of Heaven online now.
