Are there two versions of The Twelve?

Technically, yes. The Twelve is an Australian remake of the 2019 Belgian TV show De Twaalf (which translates to ‘the twelve’ in English).

However, while both television shows follow the 12 jurors deliberating on a murder trial, the plots are quite different.

In the original version, the series focuses on the trial of Frie Palmers – a school headmistress accused of two murders committed many years apart; her best friend in 2000 and her daughter in 2016.

Whereas the Australian version focuses on the trial of Kate Lawson – who is accused of killing her 14-year-old niece.
