Who is in the cast of The Voyeurs on Amazon?

The cast of Amazon's "The Voyeurs" is led by a quartet of young stars whose careers are rapidly taking off. The protagonists are the young couple Pippa and Thomas. This pair will be played by Sydney Sweeney and Justice Smith, as was revealed in a Variety casting report back in November 2019. Sweeney has popped up in numerous high-profile television projects over the last few years, including HBO prestige shows "Euphoria," "Sharp Objects," and "The White Lotus," as well as "Nocturne," one of four horror movies released as part of the Amazon-Blumhouse anthology "Welcome to the Blumhouse." Sweeney has also worked with "The Voyeurs" director Michael Mohan on the Netflix teen drama "Everything Sucks!"

Like Sweeney, Smith has also been popping up in a number of popular tentpoles and TV shows. Audiences will be most familiar with Smith through his performances in "Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom," "Detective Pikachu," and HBO's teen drama "Generation." Soon, Smith will be seen in "Jurassic World: Dominion" and the "Dungeons & Dragons" movie starring Chris Pine.

Starring alongside Sweeney and Smith in "The Voyeurs" is "X-Men: Apocalypse" alum Ben Hardy and Netflix's "The Society" cast member Natasha Liu Bordizzo as the couple who grab Pippa and Thomas's voyeuristic attention. Additional cast includes Katharine King So ("Jupiter's Legacy"), Cait Alexander ("The Handmaid's Tale"), Caitlyn Sponheimer ("The Boys"), and Madeline Harvey ("The Bold Type").

What is the plot of The Voyeurs on Amazon?

Luckily for us, the official synopsis of "The Voyeurs" was included in the same 2019 Variety report that announced the casting of Sydney Sweeney and Justice Smith. According to Variety, "The Voyeurs" tells the story of Pippa (Sweeney) and Thomas (Smith), "a young couple who move into their dream apartment, only to find their windows look directly into a unit across the street — a volatile and attractive couple (Hardy and Bordizzo) who captivate the pair. When they attempt to anonymously intercede in their lives, they unwittingly set in motion a chain of events that will lead to disaster."

"The Voyeurs" is an entirely original story from writer/director Michael Mohan. Prior to "The Voyeurs," Mohan's screenwriting experience is primarily in writing short films. Mohan also has a co-writing credit on the 2012 Alison Brie and Lizzy Caplan drama "Save the Date," his feature film directorial debut, as well as a writing credit on the short-lived Netflix YA show "Everything Sucks!" After spending time writing teen drama, "The Voyeurs" appears to mark Mohan's return to adult fare and sees the writer/director working in a new genre: the adult thriller.

Get ready, because "The Voyeurs" arrives on Amazon Prime Video on September 10.
