An irreverent blind woman in her twenties, Murphy drifts through life in a drunken haze. She has only two friends—Jess, her understanding roommate, and Tyson, a teenage drug-dealer who saved her from a violent mugging. Out for a walk with her guide dog, Pretzel, she stumbles upon a corpse that must be Tyson's, but it disappears before the police arrive. When they do not seem inclined to investigate, Murphy clings onto the only thing that can keep her together: figuring out what happened to her friend. She resolves to solve the murder herself, while also managing her colorful dating life and the job she hates at "Guiding Hope", a school for training guide dogs run by her parents.
Cast and charactersEdit

Criticisms over lack of disabled actorsEdit
The show received some criticism of the casting of a sighted actor playing a blind character. British actor James Moore, who plays a disabled character in the soap opera Emmerdale and has a disability himself, argued that disabled actors will always be better placed to play disabled roles due to their life experience. On review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes, critics worried that the "questionable treatment of physical handicaps may leave some viewers with a dim impression."
During a panel discussion at the Television Critics Association press tour, executive producer Nicky Weinstock defended the choices, claiming that they initially auditioned blind actors, but ultimately cast Perry because she was the best actor for the role.
The series was created by Corinne Kingsbury for The CW, to debut during the 2018–19 television season. On January 30, 2018, The CW officially ordered the pilot. The series was greenlit on May 11, 2018.
In the Dark is the first CW primetime series to carry Descriptive Video Service audio, though The CW, as a minor network, is not required to have any DVS provisions under the regulations for audio description for their affiliates, so the base of stations carrying that track is smaller than other networks where carriage of descriptive video is required. On January 10, 2019, The CW announced the premiere of the series on April 4 at 9 p.m. On April 24, 2019, The CW renewed the series for a second season.
On March 2, 2018, it was announced that Perry Mattfeld had been cast in the protagonist role of Murphy in the series' pilot, along with Brooke Markham as Jess, Murphy's roommate and best friend, and Keston John as Darnell, a local drug dealer; followed on March 9 with Kathleen York as Joy, Murphy's mother, and Derek Webster as Hank, Joy's husband. Austin Nichols was cast as Dean, a cop with a blind daughter, on March 12. On May 16, 2018, The CW announced that the role of Dean had been recast; with Nichols thereafter replaced by Rich Sommer on July 13, 2018. On September 10, 2019, Matt Murray was cast in a recurring role for the second season.
Filming on the pilot began on March 12, 2018, in Toronto, Ontario, Canada; and wrapped on March 28. Principal photography on season 1 began on August 8, 2018, and ended on December 21, 2018. Principal photography for the second season began on August 19, 2019 and expected to end January 24, 2020 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

|Murphy, a twenty-something antisocial blind woman, lives a relatively uneventful life full of drunken hookups and chain-smoking, with only Tyson, a teenage drug dealer who befriends her, to confide in. One night, while walking her dog, Murphy stumbles across what she believes to be Tyson's corpse, but when a police investigation turns up nothing, she spirals into depression, culminating in her getting caught cheating with a married man, Bryant, and losing her cane. When she returns to Tyson's old corner, she meets Darnell, Tyson's cousin and supplier, who tells her he's still alive. Bryant's wife, Gayle, rescinds a donation she made to Murphy's parents, driving a wedge between her and her mother Joy, who has given up trying to help her. Out of guilt, Murphy agrees to take a receptionist's job in her family's seeing dog school until she can pay them back. Incensed that no one believes her about Tyson, Murphy takes it upon herself to find him and has his phone's GPS tracked so she can find it. She notifies both Darnell and a friendly cop, Dean, but both discourage her from further investigation. Murphy's roommate Jess tells her that she knows Murphy will try to solve the case anyway.|

While visiting Dean for an update on the phone, Murphy tells Chloe that her father should consider dating. Jess becomes concerned that Vanessa doesn't love her. Joy and Hank organize a "barkery" event to raise money for the school, which Joy expects her daughter to attend. Murphy goes to Darnell for the address, but he refuses to tell her. Instead, she goes on a one-hour date with Max, one of his associates, for the information. Chloe sets her father up with Jade, a hooker from the station. Jess buys a sex toy to improve her relationship with Vanessa. Max takes Murphy to a beach, and then gives her the address. Murphy goes there, visits Tyson's room, and then tells Rhonda the truth. Dean contacts Murphy, and delivers the news that while Tyson's phone was completely wiped, they can now push forward with his case. Max shows up and gets her to agree to have a drink with him.

Murphy subsequently convinces Felix to hold an outreach event at the school so she can get access. Max tries to break through Murphy's emotional walls, so she kicks him out. Darnell steals some of the money he's collecting for Tyson's mother, but she refuses to take it. Felix is nervous about addressing the students, but finds that he can connect with them when he pretends to be blind. Murphy finds Keira's friends and learn that she's been missing school. She then has sex with a teacher, which accidentally exposes Felix's deception and humiliates him publicly. Murphy makes up for the embarrassment by offering Felix a cigarette and encouraging him to start standing up for himself. Dean tries to help Chloe deal with her first period; Murphy comes to help by roasting Chloe at her request. Keira visits Murphy and reveals that Tyson cheated on her with a girl named Jamie, and provides her address. Murphy meets Max at the bar and decides that she does, in fact, want to date him.|

However, when Murphy gets stuck in a bathroom stall and then nearly gets hit by a truck, she rudely refuses his help. One of the school's trainers refuses to relinquish custody of her guide dog. Felix accidentally exposes Murphy's lie to Joy. Dean's partner, Jules, learns that Tyson witnessed a murder shortly before his disappearance. Jaime turns out to not be a girl, but the name of Tyson's biological father, who tells her that Tyson is alive and living away from Chicago. Joy learns that Jess has a secret tracking app installed on Murphy's phone; the two bond over their mutual worry for her safety. Murphy gets drunk and behaves inappropriately at a restaurant, causing Max to get arrested; she then gets him released by using her disability to accuse the manager of assaulting her. When they return home, Murphy introduces him to Joy and convinces the trainer to release her dog. Darnell is revealed to be in a secret relationship with Jules.|

|Dean shares his new lead with Murphy, and hits it off with Chelsea, a bartender. Murphy becomes increasingly worried that she might be pregnant. Darnell tries to go out on a date with Jules, but an unexpected call ruins it. Murphy, unsure of herself, decides to feel a dead body to determine if she really felt Tyson's corpse. She and Jess go to see Felix's dying uncle, and his mother invites them to stay over. Darnell tells Max that he needs to end things with Murphy. Felix confesses to the girls that he is mostly estranged from his unsupportive family and values their friendship, but when a drunk Murphy reveals why they came, he throws them out. Jess and Murphy argue, and Murphy calls Max for support while Jess apologizes to Felix. Jules warns Darnell of an impending police raid, and he escapes with Max, who then tells him he's not going to leave Murphy. Murphy visits a shop that Tyson helped run drugs out of, but while having her period in the bathroom, she overhears the owner being murdered and feels his body.

|Dean informs Murphy of Tyson's death; shattered, she gets arrested when she tries to smoke at the crime scene and refuses to answer any questions. She also dumps Max when he insists on talking about her feelings. Rhonda bitterly refuses to let Darnell pay for Tyson's funeral. Dean and Jules call Murphy back in and reveal that Tyson was killed by a gunshot to the head; Murphy then realizes that he was alive when she found him, making her feel responsible for his death. When she tries to smother her guilt by hooking up with a bar patron, he turns her down when he realizes she's too drunk to feel anything. Dean encourages her to go to the funeral, but she gets kicked out after arguing with Jaime. Darnell, however, leaves the door open so she can listen from outside. Rhonda finds video recordings of Murphy on Tyson's computer and reaches out to her, giving her a small jar of his ashes which she then spreads across a lake. Having finally achieved closure, she goes to find Max hoping for forgiveness. Instead, she overhears a conversation between him and one of Nia's associates, Wesley Moreno, whose voice she recognizes as that of the man who murdered the shop owner.|
|7||"The One That Got Away"||Anna Mastro||Ryan Knighton||May 16, 2019||0.52|
|Nia denies Darnell permission to deal with Wesley, saying she wants to handle it personally. Ignoring all warnings not to do so, Murphy reports Wesley to the police and picks him out of a vocal line-up. Hank asks Felix to discreetly procure him some weed; in turn, he asks Jess to accompany him. Murphy agrees to watch Chloe while Dean and Chelsea go on a date, and then takes her to the mall to meet a boy named Billy, unaware that Nia has paid Wesley's bail and provided him with her name. Murphy pays for Chloe to get a full makeover, boosting her confidence enough that she manages to overcome her shyness and get Billy to talk to her. Wesley then abducts them and confiscates their phones, but Murphy uses a message written in lipstick to get a bystander to call 911, forcing him to ditch them and flee. Darnell, Max, and Jess track down Wesley, who gets run over by a truck while trying to escape, traumatizing Jess. A furious Dean forbids Murphy from seeing Chloe or him ever again. While smoking with Hank, Felix cuts a check to buy Guiding Hope after learning that the school is completely broke.

|8||"Jessica Rabbit"||Kyra Sedgwick||Eric Randall||May 23, 2019||0.60|
|Max insists that Murphy spend the night at his apartment, and Dean tries to reconnect with her after his fury settles. The man who struck Wesley identifies Jess as having witnessed his death to the police; Darnell and Max agree to help her by cleaning her car of Wesley's DNA, but worry that Jess' trauma and poor ability to lie will expose them. Felix assumes ownership of the school despite Joy refusing to sign on to the deal. Jess, feeling that Vanessa does not understand or appreciate her feelings, turns away from her. Darnell advises Jess to use emotional manipulation to throw off the cops, which allows her to pass questioning unscathed. When Vanessa fails to show up for a makeup date, however, she winds up cheating on her with a girl at the bar and decides to hide it. Joy, impressed with Felix's devotion to Guiding Hope, agrees to sign. When Murphy returns home, Jess passes information from Chelsea to her about Tyson's other killer. Felix informs Murphy that from now on, she'll be expected to work like everyone else. He also shows off a new watch--the same watch Wesley owned and that Murphy tried to dispose of. Murphy takes it to Dean, blowing off a dinner Max had planned for her.|
|9||"Deal or No Deal"||Steve Tsuchida||Kara Brown||May 30, 2019||0.58|
|Jess tries to recommit herself to Vanessa, while Murphy feels disloyal to Max for spending the night at Dean's (which also upsets Chelsea). Video footage of Darnell and Wesley getting in a confrontation with Tyson surfaces, leading Murphy to suspect that Tyson was killed for informing on the gang. Darnell refuses to cooperate with the police, and Jules leaves him. He decides to ask Nia for more responsibility, and asks Max to front the cash for a deal, unaware that he is, in fact, an informant. Max tips off his handler, Det. Barnes, to the deal, and is told to find out where it's taking place. Jess, overwhelmed with guilt, admits to cheating on Vanessa on the night of their seven-month anniversary. Felix then drives her and Murphy to Max's place, where they find a text leading them to a hotel room where the deal is set to take place. Jess ponders whether she tanked her relationship with Vanessa on purpose. Max runs into Murphy; when she learns the truth, she runs off blaming him for Tyson's death. Max loses heart and flees without delivering the money, while Jules arrests Darnell for Tyson's murder to protect him from Barnes.|
