Premiere Episode of Peacock’s The Resort Gets NBC Primetime Hour

By Rebecca Theodore-Vachon 

NBC viewers can check into The Resort this coming Wednesday, Aug. 24, at 9 p.m. ET.

The premiere episode of the critically acclaimed Peacock original series will air on the broadcast network after a live results telecast of America’s Got Talent, NBC’s most-watched show (excluding sports). The Resort broadcast will also include a teaser of the show’s second episode. Viewers can then watch the rest of the series on Peacock ahead of the Sept. 1 season finale.

The first three episodes of The Resort premiered July 28 on Peacock, followed by weekly episodes every Thursday.


“Peacock audiences are hooked on the week-to-week mystery of ‘The Resort,’ and bringing the premiere episode to NBC is the perfect way to introduce it to new fans,” said Lisa Katz, president, scripted content, NBCUniversal television and streaming. “NBC viewers already know and love William Jackson Harper from The Good Place and joined by the incredible Cristin Milioti, the two lead a phenomenal cast that is giving people their next binge-worthy series.”

The cast includes Nick Offerman (“Parks and Recreation”), Skyler Gisondo (“The Righteous Gemstones”) and Luis Gerardo Méndez (“Narcos: Mexico”).

The Resort is a multi-generational, coming-of-age love story that doubles as a fast-paced mystery about the disappointment of time. An anniversary trip puts a marriage to the test when the couple finds themselves embroiled in one of the Yucatan’s most bizarre mysteries that took place 15 years prior.
