Peacock’s mind-bending thriller series The Resort is definitely one of the best offerings by the streamer. Created by Andy Siara, The Resort blends mystery, drama, romance, and sci-fi to tell a brilliant story about love and loss. The series follows two timelines, the first one is in 2022, which follows Emma (Cristin Milioti) and Noah (William Jackson Harper) as they arrive at a resort in Yucatán, Mexico to celebrate their 10 years of marriage. But not everything is as it should be because they are in a bit of a rut and not that into each other anymore. After arriving at the resort Emma goes through an accident and ends up finding a flip phone in the jungle. Emma later finds out that the phone belongs to a boy named Sam Knowlton (Skyler Gisondo), a boy who vanished with another tourist named Violet Thompson (Nina Bloomgarden) in 2007, a day before a hurricane completely destroyed the resort they were staying in. The story jumps back and forth between 2022 and 2007 as Emma tries to find out what actually happened to the young couple.
