With the idea of retirement on his mind, it looks like Drake might be leaning into the television and film world even more. This week, Hulu announces Saint X will debut next month. Drake and Future The Prince serve as executive producers of the psychological thriller based on a book by Alexis Schaitkin. The show follows the story of a young woman's mysterious death that leads to a domino effect on her sister's mission to uncover the truth. Dees Rees will also direct the show, along with serving as the executive producer.
Saint X stars Alycia Dabnam-Carey of the Fear Of The Walking Dead game, along with West Chovny, who stars as Alison. The show also stars Josh Bonzie as Clive "Gogo" Richardson and Jayden Elijah as Edwin. The first three episodes of Saint X debut on April 29th, 2023. The remaining five episodes will roll out on a weekly basis after that. Drake hasn't made any specific mentions of his involvement recently, though it seems like he might have another hit show to add to his extensive television resume. We'll have to wait until the end of April to see if it will live up to the hype.
