The Journalist Series Premiere

When does "The Journalist" start on Netflix? Will The Journalist be a successful show? Who is in the cast? Where to watch trailer & more. In this post, we have summarized everything we know so far about the new Netflix series.

What Is The Journalist About?

In The Journalist, we welcome Ryoko Yonekura (Doctor X, Legal V) to play the protagonist Anna Matsuda, a Toto Newspaper reporter known as the 'maverick of news media', who strives to expose issues in modern Japanese society

The Journalist is an adaptation of the hit movie of the same name, The Journalist, released theatrically in 2019 which was a huge hit with audiences garnering a great deal of attention by confronting Japanese political crimes and scandals of recent years. With its shocking tackling of societal taboos, thrilling developments, and stylish visuals, the film won awards in three major categories at the 43rd Japan Academy Awards, including Best Picture of the Year, as well as many other film awards.

While most reporters are quick to play nice with government officials for fear of losing special access to higher-up news sources, Anna Matsuda was not one of them. She took her duty as a journalist seriously, and never shied away from a story. When it becomes clear that the government is involved in a massive cover-up of some kind, Matsuda starts picking up the pieces to try and expose the truth. As the case unravels, we see how far, wide and deep officials go to craft their own version of the truth, using the media to suit their needs. Matsuda’s relentless dedication moves a handful who are privy to insider intel to speak up in an attempt to end the perverse cycle of misinformation and corruption.
