“After escaping a Georgia plantation for the rumoured Underground Railroad, Cora discovers no mere metaphor, but an actual railroad full of engineers and conductors, and a secret network of tracks and tunnels beneath the Southern soil.

“Through her journey, Cora contends with the legacy of the mother that left her behind and her own struggles to realise a life she never thought was possible.

“Over the course of her journey Cora is pursued by Ridgeway (Joel Edgerton), a bounty hunter who is fixated on bringing her back to the plantation she escaped; especially since her mother Mabel is the only one he has never caught.”

Emmy-nominated actress Thuso Mbedu portrays Cora Randall in The Underground Railroad.

She stars alongside Krypton’s Aaron Pierre and The Great Gatsby’s Joel Edgerton as Ridgeway.

Also starring in the series are Justice Leak, Damon Herriman, Amber Gray and Will Poulter.
