starring Daniel Radcliffe, James McAvoy, and Andrew Scott.


Callum Turner’s next big television project will see him star in Apple’s Neuromancer, another highly anticipated sci-fi series that will stream exclusively on Apple TV+. Turner was undoubtedly one of the best acting talents in the star-studded ensemble of Masters of the Air and will surely be a great lead in Neuromancer as well. Before Masters of the Air, Turner was best known for his work in the Fantastic Beasts franchise, a spin-off of the celebrated Harry Potter movies. He has already acted in several sci-fi projects before, including 2015’s Victor Frankenstein starring Daniel Radcliffe, James McAvoy, and Andrew Scott.


Neuromancer will be joining an esteemed group of critically acclaimed Apple original sci-fi series. The best of these is arguably 2022’s Severance, a dystopian sci-fi phycological drama that recently won 2 Emmys and will return with its highly anticipated second season sometime in the near future. Some of the other great Apple sci-fi series include For All Mankind, one of Apple’s very first original series that premiered back in 2019 and has also won 2 Emmys, and Silo, led by Rebecca Ferguson (Mission: Impossible, Dune: Part Two). Neuromancer will have great company as Apple’s latest sci-fi original series.

Apple is certainly making a great choice by keeping Turner within its prime wheelhouse of original content. After the great impact of Masters of the Air, Turner is already a very well-known face among Apple TV+ subscribers and should be an easy draw for native fans of Masters of the Air to their new series Neuromancer. The series will be written and directed by J.D. Dillard, known for his previous work on 2022’s Devotion, which starred Glen Powell of Top Gun: Maverick acclaim. Dillard also directed single episodes of The Twilight Zone (2020) and the celebrated HBO limited series The Outsider, adding another layer of anticipation for Neuromancer.


Neuromancer will also be created by Graham Roland, who created the AMC original series Dark Winds, a crime drama set in the 1970s, as well as the celebrated Amazon Prime Video original series Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan (2018 – 2023) starring John Krasinski. With the creative collaboration of Dillard and Roland, it’s clear that Turner will once again be in good hands with Neuromancer as he was with Masters of the Air. Masters of the Air was developed for television by John Orloff, who wrote two episodes of Band of Brothers, and directed in part by Cary Joji Fukunaga, the Emmy-winning director of True Detective season 1.
