Alright folks, it's time to watch Gaslit online, and experience the same joys that this powerhouse cast had working together. Julia Roberts (returning to TV for the first time since 2018's Homecoming) said (opens in new tab) she "was so excited" to see Sean Penn on set — in full costume — that the collision between their body pads caused them to bounce off one another.

Gaslit start time, channel

Gaslit premieres today (Sunday, April 24) at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Starz.

Gaslit, which is based on the first season of Leon Neyfakh's Slow Burn podcast, focuses its cameras on Roberts as Martha Mitchell and Penn as her husband John, who was the attorney general under Richard Nixon. Because while you may know the story of Nixon's downfall, you may not have heard this angle. 

Martha was a celebrity and socialite in Arkansas, and often found herself appearing on news programs and talk shows, where she expressed her unfiltered views — earning her the moniker "The Mouth of the South." And, so, things got mighty complicated after the events of the Watergate break-in. 

Once John realizes that Martha knows what happened, he's put in a very difficult position that is only complicated by Martha's decision to speak out — which she did as the first person to connect the dots. Her reward? A smear campaign that her husband contributed to.

Here's everything you need to know about how to watch Gaslit (and check out the trailer below).
