The Path is a gripping drama series created by Jessica Goldberg and produced by Hulu Originals. The show features a star-studded cast including Aaron Paul, Michelle Monaghan, and Emma Greenwell, in a story that explores the intricate balance between faith, power, and human nature. The show's three-season run lasted from 2016 to 2018, and it was lauded for its exceptional writing, powerful performances, and thought-provoking subject matter.

The plot of The Path follows the struggles of a family who are members of a fictional religious movement known as Meyerism. Aaron Paul plays Eddie Lane, a man who is grappling with his beliefs and doubts about the movement. Michelle Monaghan stars as his wife, Sarah Lane, who is fiercely devoted to the cause and holds a high-ranking position within the organization. Emma Greenwell plays Mary Cox, a troubled woman who is seeking redemption and finds herself drawn to the movement.

As the show unfolds, we see the inner workings of the Meyerist movement and the complex relationships between its members. The movement is led by a charismatic leader known as Cal Roberts, played by Hugh Dancy, who is ambitious and power-hungry. There are also several other intriguing characters, including Sarah's brother, who is a high-ranking member of the organization, and Summer, a teenage girl who is questioning her faith.

Cal, who is jockeying for more power within the organization, becomes an increasingly menacing force as he engages in unethical behaviors.

One of the unique aspects of The Path is the way it explores the inner workings of a fictional religious movement. The Meyerists have their own set of beliefs, rituals, and practices, and the show delves into the intricate details of this world. We see the characters meditating, attending meetings, and undergoing intense spiritual experiences. The show also touches on current social issues, such as the role of women within organized religions and the impact of technology on belief systems.
