Production[edit]

Development[edit]

On August 28, 2018, it was announced that Epix had given the production, then titled Our Lady, LTD, a series order for a first season consisting of ten episodes set to premiere in 2019. The series is written and showrun by Steven Conrad and Bruce Terris both of whom also executive produce alongside Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal, and Steve Tisch. Conrad directed six episodes of the series as well. The series is produced by MGM Television.[2][3] On February 10, 2019, it was announced during the Television Critics Association's annual winter press tour that the series had been renamed Perpetual Grace, LTD.[5]

Casting[edit]

Alongside the series order announcement, it was confirmed that Ben Kingsley would star in the series.[2][3] On August 30, 2018, it was announced that Jimmi Simpson had been cast in a leading role.[6] On September 4, 2018, it was reported that Jackie Weaver had been cast in a starring role.[7] In November 2018, it was announced that Luis Guzmán, Damon Herriman, and Chris Conrad had been cast in series regular roles, that Kurtwood Smith and Terry O'Quinn would appear in a recurring capacity, and that Hana Mae Lee would appear in a guest role.[8][9] On February 4, 2019, it was reported that Timothy Spall had been cast in a recurring role.[10]

Filming[edit]

Principal photography for the series commenced in November 2018 in Santa Fe, New Mexico.[11][12] Filming occurred in locations that month near Santa Fe including Los Cerrillos.[13] In December 2018, shooting took place in Los Alamos with film sites including Los Alamos County Airport, Main Gate Park, Los Alamos National Bank, and DP Road.[14] Filming was scheduled to last until March 2019.[11]

Reception[edit]

On Rotten Tomatoes, the first season has an approval rating of 92% with an average score of 8 out of 10 based on 13 reviews. The site's critical consensus is, "Singularly strange, Perpetual Grace, LTD boasts a brilliant cast (led by a hypnotic turn from Ben Kingsley), impressive panoramas, and no shortage of twisty delights."[15]
