The show is created by Craig Mazin (The Hangover: Part II & III), directed by Johan Renck (Downloading Nancy) and stars Jared Harris, Stellan Skarsgard and Emily Watson.

Mazin is also executive producing the Sister Pictures and The Mighty Mint production with Jane Featherstone (Utopia, Broadchurch) and Carolyn Strauss (Game of Thrones). Johann Johannsson who collaborated with Gudnadottir on several projects was originally attached to score the series before he passed away as reported earlier this yearChernobyl is expected to premiere in 2019 in the U.S. on HBO and in Europe on Sky.

Gudnatottir also has the action crime thriller Sicario: Day of the Soldado coming up.
