Just about a year ago, Gabriel Byrne was spotted on the set of the new Netflix series, Maniac, with star Jonah Hill and director Cary Fukunaga. Remember?

Well, that series, also starring Emma Stone and Justin Theroux, is set to air on Netflix September 21, 2018!

We have no information on Gabriel’s role in the series or in how many episodes he may appear. But we do have the first promotional image of him from Maniac:

So, good guy? Nice guy? No. Probably a bad guy. We shall see!

The 10-episode series is based on the Norwegian television series of the same name and sounds very imaginative and fun–and dangerous. Check out the Projects Page for Maniac for more information and stay tuned!


  1. Geez Stella, I come out of the back woods after a few weeks of R and R, and find these glorious nuggets of Gabriel goodness. I bet he plays a bad , bad boy in this one. He looks like a cross between The Man and Duvall …

  2. I’ve watched the first three episodes. It’s a really innovative series – not predictable, some humour, part sci-fi and part je ne sais quoi ? As for Mr. BYRNE, he plays the kind, but out of touch dad of a very dysfunctional family. Not like in the above photo at all. But the photo is intriguing and may be part of a drug induced dream sequence that comes later as the main characters try to resolve their psychological issues.

    • Angelle, I am finally going to watch MANIAC this weekend. It sounds like a unique story/experience and I’m really looking forward to it. Reviews have been uniformly good and Twitter folks seem really pleased with it, too. I agree about the Gabriel pic. Looks like a dream sequence (he apparently does something rather nasty with a DRILL in one scene. OMG). I am looking forward to his next romantic film. LOL!
