Jennifer Garner replaces Julia Roberts in Apple TV+ limited series ‘The Last Thing He Told Me’

It has been almost one year that we first heard about a new limited series called The Last Thing He Told Me coming soon to Apple TV+. News about the upcoming show has been quiet ever since. But that changed recently when news broke that the primary role in the series had been recast.

Last year, it was reported that Julia Roberts (Pretty Woman) was set to star in the series. However, it turns out that will no longer be the case. Instead, Deadline is reporting that Jennifer Garner (13 Going on 30) has now replaced Roberts in the role. The limited series is based on the book of the same name written by Laura Dave.

From the original report, here’s the short description of what to expect from The Last Thing He Told Me:

Created by Dave and co-created by Oscar winner Josh Singer (Spotlight), the The Last Thing He Told Me adaptation follows a woman who forms an unexpected relationship with her sixteen-year-old stepdaughter while searching for the truth about why her husband has mysteriously disappeared.

Despite the fact news broke about the series launching on Apple TV+ last year, there’s still no telling when this will see the light of day for subscribers to actually watch. With the recasting, though, we’re probably still a ways off. To be fair, the book that this series is based on only launched in May of this year. So, even without the casting change, production on the series would only now be getting up and off the ground.

The Last Thing He Told Me is executive produced by Garner. It is being produced and brought to Apple TV+ from Hello Sunshine, Reese Witherspoon’s production studio.

As soon as we know more, we’ll be sure to pass it along. Including the first trailer, whenever that lands.
