‘For Her Sins’ trailer and release date: ‘All Creatures’ star leads new thriller series

Channel 5 has unveiled the first look at Rachel Shenton‘s new TV drama!

Best known for playing Helen Alderson in All Creatures Great and Small since 2020, the English actress stars in psychological thriller For Her Sins.

The four-part mini-series was previously titled Under Her Skin and began filming last December in Malta.

Shenton is joined by former EastEnders and Ackley Bridge star Jo Joyner.

Shakespeare & Hathaway: Private Investigators fans will recognise Joyner as Luella Shakespeare in the BBC’s popular crime drama.

“I’m absolutely thrilled to be part of [the series], Rachel Shenton previously commented. “Jo Rogers has created such a dark and compelling story that has two women at its centre, I loved it and couldn’t put it down.”

For Her Sins tells the story of a woman who “on the surface, has it all – but with the pressures of modern life and a new friend secretly determined to create chaos, her world is set spiralling.”

When’s the release date?

For Her Sins is set to premiere in the UK on Channel 5 at 9pm on Monday 5 June.

The four episodes will be shown on consecutive nights across the week, with the finale airing on Thursday 8 June.

Watch a clip from the first ep here:

“Laura Conroy is a woman who has it all – a loving husband, two beautiful children and a successful career as a lawyer,” the official synopsis reveals.

“But like most people, there are cracks in her perfect veneer. Cracks that Emily Furness, a charismatic stranger, is hell bent on exploiting.

“When Laura meets charming newcomer Emily in the school playground, they become fast friends. Laura’s husband Rob often works abroad, leaving a stressed Laura to deal with the children alone while juggling returning to work after the birth of their son.

“The beguiling, ever-helpful Emily is a real saviour in Laura’s eyes. However, all is not what it seems… Laura is unwittingly led down an increasingly dangerous path as Emily sets about infiltrating her life and poisoning it from the inside.

“And she’s persuaded a journalist to help her take Laura down too. But why? Unknown to Laura, these two women are bound by a shared secret; one Laura has tried to keep buried.

“But nothing stays a secret forever and Emily is here to make sure this one is exposed, no matter the price.”

Rachel Shenton is currently busy filming brand new episodes of All Creatures Great and Small in Yorkshire.

Her co-star Nicholas Ralph, who plays James, recently revealed that there could be “the pitter-patter of tiny feet” in the show’s upcoming fourth season!

All Creatures Great and Small is available to watch on PBS Masterpiece via Amazon Prime with a free 7-day trial.
