The Curse is quite the star-studded affair, as the likes of Emma Stone, Benny Safdie and Nathan Fielder are teaming up with A24 for an all new series on Showtime. It makes for quite the addition to the fall TV lineup.

A24 may be more known for its movies, but the indie studio has already had a number of TV successes, including Euphoria, Irma Vep, Beef and others. Could The Curse be the next big hit for A24 and Showtime?

Before we find out if that’s the case though, here is everything that you need to know about The Curse.

When is the next The Curse episode?

The finale of The Curse is now available to stream on Paramount Plus for Paramount Plus with Showtime subscribers. If you are waiting for the show's airing on the cable version of Showtime, that'll be on Sunday, January 14, at 9 pm ET/PT.

The Curse plot

Co-created and written by Benny Safdie and Nathan Fielder, here is the synopsis for The Curse:

"The Curse is a genre-bending series that explores how an alleged curse disturbs the relationship of a newly married couple as they try to conceive a child while co-starring in their new home-improvement show."

In addition to writing the series, Safdie and Fielder are executive producing the series, as is Stone. Fielder is also the director.
