"Masterpiece: The Miniaturist" Begins September 9

Last Updated by Dale Fisher on

In 1686, 18-year-old Nella Oortman (Anya Taylor-Joy, SplitThe Witch) arrives in Amsterdam to meet her wealthy merchant husband Johannes Brandt (Alex Hassell, Genius: Picasso), but is instead met by his sister Marin (Romola Garai, Churchill’s Secret, The Hour). When Johannes appears, he presents her with a wedding gift: a cabinet that is a miniature replica of their home, to be furnished by an elusive Miniaturist, whose tiny creations mirror what is happening within the house in unexpected ways and seem to be predicting and unraveling the future with unsettling precision.

As Nella begins to uncover its secrets and those of the Brandt household she realizes the escalating dangers that await them all. Does the Miniaturist hold their fate in her hands? And will she be the key to their salvation or the architect of their downfall?

Adapted from Jessie Burton’s internationally best-selling novel, The Miniaturist, a ravishing three-part period thriller from Masterpiece. 

Sundays, September 9, 16 & 23, at 8:00 p.m. on Nine PBS.
