“‘We’re not here to hurt you…”
Leopard Skin premiered on Peacock on November 17th 2022 with all eight episodes available to stream now. The crime thriller series stars Carla Gugino, Amelia Eve, Gaite Jansen, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan. Each episode runs for approximately 26-30 minutes.
A criminal gang seeks shelter at an island resort, holding two women captive while dangerous secrets are revealed.
Here is the trailer:
Leopard Skin has a fantastic cast to be excited about and a killer premise, but does it do enough to hold on to its audience? Let’s find out…
I’m a huge fan of both Carla Gugino and Jeffrey Dean Morgan so I thought this series would be a slam dunk. They both lit up the screen in different ways and held their own. Some of the other characters were entertaining as well, but other performances left a lot to be desired…
Gets right into things…
There was almost no set-up in this series. In less than five minutes, the plot took off and I thought this worked in the show’s favor. The episodes were super short as well, which made binge-watching this a breeze. I also loved the concept.
The love stops there unfortunately….
Messy, unfocused plot with absolutely no point…
I was really disappointed with this series. It had all the ingredients to be spectacular and it fizzled out really quickly. The plot felt unsure of itself and I didn’t see the point of it. The time jumps were really confusing and there were so many random scenes that didn’t add to the series at all in any way. I was hoping for a unique gem here, but I just couldn’t get into this one the way I wanted to.
So am I in or out?
Unfortunately I’m out on this one…
This series had all the right components to be a hit, but it never quite found its identity.
I hope you enjoyed the review and feel free to post your own thoughts and theories on Leopard Skin in the comments section below. Thanks so much for reading and happy viewing!

A VACATION TO DIE FOR…
When sisters, Nina and Gemma are vacationing in Hawaii with their friends, they get invited to an exclusive party on a private island that seems too good to be true. There’s only one rule…they can’t miss their ferry at midnight or they’ll have to wait until morning to leave the island. Only they didn’t realize that breaking this rule meant they would be hunted down on the island one by one.
Who will make it off the island alive?
I hope you enjoy my new island thriller!
