Class of ’09 trailer: Brian Tyree Henry and Kate Mara star in an unorthodox crime series about a corrupt justice system

FX’s Class of ’09 trailer finds Brian Tyree Henry and Kate Mara joining an elite law enforcement program corrupted by A.I.

Law enforcement is a complicated arena. There’s no room for error when lives are on the line, yet corruption seeps into the foundation repeatedly. Today, Disney+ unveiled FX‘s Class of ’09 trailer for the limited series from Tom Rob Smith, starring Brian Tyree Henry (EternalsBullet Train) and Kate Mara (House of CardsMegan Leavey).

Class of ’09 is a suspenseful thriller limited series that follows a class of FBI agents set in three distinct points in time who acclimate and grapple with immense changes as the U.S. criminal justice system is altered by artificial intelligence,” says the show’s official description. “Spanning multiple decades and told across interweaving timelines, the series examines the nature of justice, humanity, and the choices we make that ultimately define our lives and legacy.”

Brian Tyree Henry plays Tayo, one of the most brilliant and unorthodox agents to join the bureau. Kate Mara plays Poet, a woman who never imagined joining the world of law enforcement yet has found herself at the center of its most pivotal transformation. Sepideh Moafi (Hour), Brian J. Smith (Lennix), Jon Jon Briones (Gabriel), Brooke Smith (Drew), Jake McDorman (Murphy), and Rosalind Eleazar (Vivienne) round out the cast.

Tom Rob Smith created the Class of ’09 limited series for FX. Smith also executive produces alongside Nina Jacobson, Brad Simpson, Zanne Devine, Jessica Levin, and Joe Robert Cole.

Class of ’09 premieres on Wednesday, May 10, exclusively on Disney+ in Canada.

Henry will reprise his role as Jefferson Davis in Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, swinging into theaters on June 2, 2023. Henry also plays Bernie Hayes in the upcoming Godzilla vs. Kong sequel, starring Dan Stevens and Rebecca Hall. He’ll also star in Flint Strong, a drama about Claressa ‘T-Rex’ Shields, a boxer from Flint, Michigan, who tried to become the first woman in her country’s history to win an Olympic medal in the sport.

Kate Mara recently played Becky Kozlowski in the Koz podcast series. The story revolves around the Sangres Motorcycle Club. Notorious for running drugs, illegal weapon sales, and possibly murder, the tale turns when a member of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives division infiltrates the group.
