*WARNING: Spoilers for Clickbait below*
Clickbait has sent fans into a spin ever since it first dropped on Netflix, with fans rushing to get to the bottom of the mystery.
The eight-part series follows the mysterious disappearance of Nick Brewer (Adrian Grenier), when a video emerges online, showing him held hostage. He holds up cards in the clip, appearing to confess to abusing women, with a threat that if it gets 5million views, he will be killed.
Nick’s sister Pia (Zoe Kazan) and wife Sophie (Betty Gabriel) face a race against time to get him back alive – but unfortunately, the internet is a pretty messed up place and those views pour in, and his body is later found, with questions over who is responsible.
It turns out some of the star-studded cast, including Adrian Grenier, didn’t have any clue either.
In fact, chatting about the new series with Metro.co.uk alongside co-star Betty Gabriel , the Devil Wears Prada actor said he was totally in the dark.

‘Yeah, I had no idea,’ he admitted when asked they were looking at others on set and questioning their characters.
‘[It] was so exciting because we got to go along for the ride as we shot, because it remained a mystery to us close to the end.’
However Betty, who starred as Sophie Brewer, didn’t quite have the same experience while filming.
’I think I knew, but I could be remembering wrong…,’ she laughed to a shocked Adrian. ‘But I think I do from the beginning. So no I wasn’t doing that.’
He interjected: ‘You already knew?! Maybe I was ignorant because I wanted to play along.’

‘I could be remembering wrong because this was 2019, that we started filming this,’ she replied, joking that she could have ‘convinced’ herself that she was aware.
If you’ve made it to the end of the series, you’ll know that Simon (Daniel Henshall) initially held him captive as revenge for his sister’s death, who took her own life when she was catfished by someone pretending to be Nick.
Simon let him go when the truth emerged, and he went running to colleague Dawn’s (Becca Lish) house after realising that she was actually behind the profile. A fight then ensued as Nick threatened to expose her, with her husband Ed (Wally Dunn) bashing him on the head with a hammer, killing him.
Australian based Matchbox Pictures and Tony Ayres Productions produced the limited series for Netflix, along with Heyday Television produced the series for Netflix – Tony Ayres served as creator, showrunner and executive producer, and Brad Anderson was lead director.

Clickbait turns the lens on online culture and the people behind the keyboard, with a grim viral video and catfishing at the forefront.
Betty has given social media a wide berth over the years, and her time on the series hasn’t convinced her otherwise.
Which is fair enough…
‘I’m off social media for most of the reasons the show presents,’ she told us. ‘It gives me so much anxiety and now even more so because there are a lot of things in the show that I didn’t even know you can do, as far as doxxing.
‘It’s very, very scary and something I take seriously.’
Agreeing, Adrian added: ‘I think there’s a very, very important cautionary tale here, and this really is a carpet of different true life digital horror stories all woven together.
‘These are real things that happen in the world, and we need to be wary of it, and be careful.’
Clickbait is available to stream on Netflix now.
