How to Watch Surface for Free on Apple TV+: Stream the Veronica West Psychological Thriller

By Ipsita Kabiraj / July 29, 2022

Apple TV+'s upcoming psychological thriller investigates the delicate issues of amnesia, guardianship, power dynamics, and the loss of women's autonomy. If that sounds interesting to you, you'll be happy to know that we've got all the details you need, including the release date, plot, and ensemble cast. Read on to find out when, where, and how to watch Surface for free on Apple TV+.

Surface is about a woman called Sophie, whose traumatic brain injury, which has left her with severe memory loss, is believed to have been caused by a failed suicide attempt. As she tries to piece her life back together, she is placed under the conservatorship of her husband, but she soon grows weary of his intentions and suspects that he's hiding something from her. Sophie then embarks on a journey to find out the truth as the viewers are compelled to ask themselves: What if you woke up one day and didn't know your own secrets?

The show focuses heavily on conservatorship, a legal arrangement under which a guardian can make decisions concerning a person's finances and even personal decisions. The topic gained public attention when Britney Spears sued to have her conservatorship terminated. On the same day Britney succeeded in ending her father's control over her finances and her life, the cast of Surace shot a scene where Sophie confronts her husband. "Even if Sophie’s journey is very particular in the series, the idea of ​​​​the control of women and the fact that they can have their autonomy is for me a theme that is always very present in today’s world," said Gugu Mbatha-Raw, who plays Sophie.

Mbatha-Raw leads the cast of Surface, and she is joined by Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Stephan James, Ari Graynor, Marianne Jean-Baptiste, François Arnaud, and Millie Brady. The show is produced by Reese Witherspoon's Hello Sunshine and Apple Studios, while Veronica West ("High Fidelity" and "Ugly Betty") created, wrote, and executive produced the series.
