Is The Pact Based On A True Story?
This series has left the audience wondering if The Pact was based on a true story.
It is not based on a true story, thankfully!
The creator of the series Pete McTighe created the series with an entirely fictional plotline and imaginary characters.
Even though the happenings of the series are not based on real life, the series did its best to bring out the ethereal beauty of Whales. The portrayal of Whales in the series is the only real factor. The creator made sure to portray the authenticity of Whales, and he did a fantastic job in it. The depiction of Welsh culture in ‘The Pact’ is accurate to life.
