Harper's Island is a thrilling drama-mystery series that aired on CBS in 2009. The show is set on Harper's Island, a secluded island off the coast of Seattle, where a group of family and friends gather for a destination wedding. However, the joyful celebrations soon turn into horror, as the guests start getting murdered one by one in mysterious circumstances.

The series follows the story of Abby Mills (played by Elaine Cassidy), a young woman who returns to Harper's Island after seven years to attend the wedding of her best friend, Trish Wellington (Katie Cassidy). Abby has a traumatic past on the island, as her mother was one of the victims of a serial killer who terrorized the island seven years ago. Abby has kept her past a secret from her friends, but as the murders start happening again, she finds herself facing the demons of her past.

The groom-to-be is Henry Dunn (Christopher Gorham), a charming and wealthy man who is deeply in love with Trish. However, Henry has a dark side, as he has a history with some of the island's residents, including Abby. As the murders continue, suspicion falls on Henry, and he becomes one of the prime suspects.

The other main characters include Cal (Adam Campbell), the wedding planner, who has a romantic history with Trish; Sully (Matt Barr), the best man who has a reputation for being a party animal; and Chloe (Cameron Richardson) and Cal's sister, who is a free spirit and has a complicated relationship with Henry. Each of these characters has their own agenda and secrets, which make them potential suspects in the murders.

The show is a classic whodunit, as the audience is kept guessing who the killer is until the very end. The series is full of twists and turns, with each episode revealing new clues and suspects. The murders are gruesome and creative, and the tension builds up with each episode.

The setting of Harper's Island is as much a character as the actors themselves. The island is beautiful but eerie, with its lush forests, rocky cliffs, and abandoned buildings. The isolated location adds to the suspense, as the characters are cut off from the mainland, and there is nowhere to run or hide.

The show also explores themes of trust, betrayal, and revenge. The characters have complicated relationships with each other, and their pasts come back to haunt them. The secrets they keep, both from each other and themselves, lead to their downfall.

Harper's Island was a unique show, as it was a limited series with a predetermined ending. The audience knew that the show would only last for one season and that the mystery would be solved by the end. This allowed the creators to tell a complete story with a satisfying conclusion.

In conclusion, Harper's Island was a gripping and suspenseful drama-mystery series that kept the audience guessing until the very end. The top-notch cast, the creative murders, and the eerie setting made it a must-watch show for fans of the genre. If you're looking for a show that will keep you on the edge of your seat, Harper's Island is definitely worth checking out.

Harper's Island is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (13 episodes). The series first aired on April 9, 2009.
