“Endgame” may sound familiar to you. While it’s not a huge box office hit, it did inspire several internet parodies. That’s OK, but you must put it all out of your mind. This is a one-of-a-kind situation. Learn more about the heist thriller “The Endgame,” which NBC has just ordered to series.
With executive producer Julie Plec (The Vampire Diaries), the series is a cat-and-mouse thriller starring Nick Wootton and Jake Coburn (The Vampire Diaries) and the FBI agent who tries to stop her.
It was seven years ago that NBC had a different thriller series in the works with the same title, but it never made it to series. It was one of two NBC pilot orders for 2021, the other being “Getaway,” which is currently awaiting a decision. It was ordered to pilot in April. New NBC dramas “La Brea” and “Ordinary Joe” have been given the go-light for 2020. What we know so far about “The Endgame,” including its release date, actors, and storyline:
