Plot Synopsis

Each season of THE PACT tells a whole new story with a brand-new cast while maintaining the Welsh setting and its focus on secrets and lies.

In Season 1, when young brewery boss Jack is found dead, a chain of events is triggered that draws his four employees -- Anna, Nancy, Louie, and Cat -- into a fragile pact of silence, bound by a secret that will change their lives forever. Anna's police officer husband Max investigates Jack's unexpected death alongside his fierce superior DS Holland, unaware that his own wife and her best friends are at the heart of a conspiracy. While brewery worker Tish becomes increasingly suspicious of her coworkers, Jack's estranged father Arwel struggles to conceal dark family secrets. Written and created by Pete McTighe, THE PACT made its U.S. debut on Thursday, December 2, 2021, as SundanceNow released the first episode. A new episode debuts each Thursday through January 6, 2022.
Season 2 of THE PACT made its U.S. debut on Thursday, August 31, 2023, as SundanceNow released the first two episodes. One new installment drops weekly on Thursdays through September 28. In Season 2, social worker Christine and her adult children -- Will, Jamie, and Megan -- are trying to move on after the tragic death of their brother Liam. As Megan's wedding approaches, their lives are turned upside down when a stranger, Connor , arrives in town claiming an extraordinary connection. There is much debate over whether to meet this stranger and loyalties are tested even before a decision is made. But ultimately, the siblings meet the man who claims to share their DNA, a strange loner from out of town and the spitting image of their long-dead brother Liam. As Christine realizes her hold over her family is under threat, she seeks to keep Connor at bay, denying his claims. But it's clear to Connor that Christine is keeping a dark secret, and he's determined to uncover the truth.
