Four teenage friends planning an epic summer vacation find themselves on the run from gangsters in Europe in this brand-new Sky Original series. Based on the acclaimed 2014 novel ‘You’ by Zoran Drvenkar, and featuring a talented bevy of up-and-coming actors – including Vivian Oparah (Rye Lane) and Leah McNamara (Normal People) – Then You Run is a darkly comic thriller promising visceral action and jaw-dropping twists.

Writer-director Ben Chanan, whose 2019 series The Capture was described as “one of the most cleverly plotted dramas of recent years” by The Guardian’s Sarah Hughes, adapts Drvenkar’s best-selling novel for TV.

Then You Run centres on Tara (McNamara), Ruth (Yasmin Monet Prince), Stink (Oparah), and Nessi (Isidora Fairhurst): a group of “ride or die” best friends based in London and eager for some post-exam antics abroad. But when Tara’s estranged father takes her away to live with him in Rotterdam, she quickly learns that her family is part of a covert criminal underworld: one that she and her best friends find themselves caught up in.

This genre-bending series slides from road trip comedy to crime thriller as the party-mad teens burn rubber across Europe with a cargo of stolen drugs worth one million euros, hotly pursued by Tara’s uncle Reagan (Richard Coyle) and his gangster cronies intent on retrieving the contraband. Yet even these villains will cross paths with a mortifying figure dubbed The Traveller (Christian Rubeck) when the story veers into serial killer territory.

Stream this funny, adrenaline-fueled teen thriller now, as we explain below how to watch Then You Run online from anywhere.
