Release date, trailer, cast and everything we know so far

Beware of AIs with friendly names. Chat with them for a while and they will start to seem like friends. They become your go-to source for answers, career advice, recipes, jokes, and life decisions. Soon you won’t be able to live without them. Hundreds of millions of people turn to Bing every day. We talk to Siri and Alexa regularly. We’ll have Bard soon. And the question everyone is asking is: will AI replace humans? The bold sci-fi comedy series Mrs Davis (2023) poses an even harder question: Can it replace God?

Mrs Davis series creator Damon Lindelof (Guardian, The rest) And Tara Hernandez (The big Bang Theory) imagine an omniscient and supposedly benevolent AI named Mrs. Davis who has amassed billions of users who rely on her “validation, gentle guidance, and unconditional care” and follow her instructions to go on quests “to to earn wings”. By communicating directly with users via earbuds, Mrs. Davis has all ears and has become the voice in people’s heads, telling them what they want to hear. Who can resist the friendly Mrs. Davis? Well, a certain nun is certainly not a believer. Troubled by Mrs. Davis’ near-total control over people, badass, motorcycling nun Sister Simone (Betty Gilpin) joins the resistance, and her ex-boyfriend rodeo rider Wiley (Jake McDorman), on an epic battle against the godlike machine.


It’s a crazy battle royale between technology and religion, and it seems about as over the top as it can get. Simone’s war against Mrs. Davis leads her on a quest for the Holy Grail and leads to encounters with sinister Reno magicians, Jesus, Nazis and resistance fighters in spectacular scenes more hallucinatory than ChatGPT’s wildest (electric) dreams.

The official trailer too Mrs Davis was released on March 14, 2023. A woman receiving instructions from Mrs. Davis via earplugs tells Nurse Simone (Gilpin) that Mrs. Davis wants her to find the Holy Grail, to which the incredulous nun can only respond with a comical comment, “The what now? Simone has another mission in mind: bring down Mrs. Davis and rid humanity of its viral influence.

The trailer gives a glimpse of Lindelof’s tremendous talent for world building. There’s a field full of pianos. A gigantic Excalibur sword sticking out of a rock. Medieval reenactments. Hard partying nuns. A motorcyclist jumps through a giant donut. Understood Bonjovi“Livin’ on a Prayer”. It’s a delightfully surreal landscape beyond the powers of Dall-E and Midjourney combined. It’s all very unreal were it not for the real possibility of an AI takeover. “It’s only a matter of time before every person on earth does as they’re asked,” warns Wiley Simone, who fortunately is loyal and fearless and can wield what appears to be a sci-fi nunchuck.
