Plot Synopsis

Blending elements of mystery-thriller, romance and the supernatural, THE PATH is a one-hour drama series that follows the Clearys, a family at the center of a controversial cult movement, as they struggle with relationships, marriage, faith and power. Cal Roberts, the charismatic face of the movement, is entangled in a complicated relationship with two other members of the movement, Sarah Cleary and her conflicted husband, Eddie. Cal battles personal demons and bold ambition as he strives to take the organization into its next generation. The series opens as Cal leads The Meyerist Movement on a disaster relief mission in New Hampshire. When Eddie returns home after completing his 6R training in Peru where he saw a horrifying vision of the organization's truth, his odd behavior leads Sarah to suspect an affair. Hulu released the first two episodes of THE PATH on Wednesday, March 30, 2016 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT, with a new episode scheduled to be released each Wednesday morning. Hulu premiered the 13-episode second of THE PATH on Wednesday, January 25, 2017 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT, releasing two new episodes the first day and then one new episode on each subsequent Wednesday. In its second season, THE PATH follows the Meyerist Movement as it tries to make sense of Doctor Meyer's mysterious departure. Tormented by strange visions, Eddie struggles with a new life in the secular world while Sarah, despite her skepticism of Cal, now stands beside him as Co-Guardian of The Light. When Sarah finally learns of Cal's dark past, she buries the truth for the betterment of The Movement. Cal and Sarah, now closer than ever, strive to atone for their misdeeds while Eddie, confronted with the meaning of his visions, discovers the truth of Doctor Meyer's departure. In the season opener, "Liminal Twilight," Eddie starts to build a life outside of The Movement, but secretly continues to see Sarah and the kids. Cal's plan to buy a building for the New York City center leads to tension within the Meyerist leadership. Sarah is stunned by a revelation about Cal. Then, in the season's second episode, "Dead Moon," with Meyerism facing dire financial straits, Cal and Sarah attend a fundraiser thrown by the Ridges for their wealthy friends. Eddie goes on a date with Chloe, the old girlfriend of his brother Johnny. Hawk experiences a transformation on a 1R retreat.
On Wednesday, April 12, 2017 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT, Hulu released the Season 2 finale of THE PATH. In the season ender, "Mercy," Cal struggles to maintain control over The Movement, still haunted by Richard. Eddie must reconcile his love for his family with his newfound role as a leader. On Ascension Day, Meyerists are faced with a decision that could change The Movement forever. Later the same day, Hulu renewed THE PATH for a third season of 13 episodes.
