Station Eleven Picks up Lori Petty and Daniel Zovatto, Aims for 2021 Release on HBO Max

Station Eleven

The original Tank Girl herself, Lori Petty, has recently been announced to join the cast of the upcoming pandemic drama Station Eleven when it’s expected to come to HBO Max later this year.


Petty will be joining Penny Dreadful‘s Daniel Zovatto and Terminator: Dark Fate‘s Mackenzie Davis for this 10-episode limited series that is based on the best-selling novel by Emily St. John Mandel.


In the 2014 novel, a strain of the swine flu kills off most of Earth’s population and the remaining survivors try their best to preserve pre-apocalypse culture the best they can. The story follows a nomadic troupe of actors who tour the Great Lakes region twenty years after the initial devastation.

The book itself won the Arthur C. Clarke Award in 2015, at which time it was also picked up for a film adaptation by Scott Steindorff. That movie eventually evolved into this 10-part series, picking up Patrick Somerville as the showrunner, with Steindorff staying on as executive producer.


While there is no release date yet for Station Eleven, it did begin filming in January of 2020 and is expected to release later this year on HBO Max.
