Netflix has been quite low-key about its new, upcoming British sci-fi series, The Innocents…at least, until now. The streaming service has unleashed an explosive first trailer for the series this week, and slid a release date in with it, too.
Guy Pearce (Alien: Covenant, Lockout, Neighbours) stars as a mysterious doctor called Halvorson in the 8-part supernatural teen drama from Hania Elkington and Simon Duric. The story revolves around Harry (Percelle Ascott) and June (Sorcha Groundsell), a pair of young, star-crossed lovers who are determined to escape their repressive families and be together forever, but when June develops shapeshifting powers beyond her control, the fallout kinda ruins their romantic plans, and Dr. Halvorson’s motivations for helping the pair look a wee bit dodgy.
