Netflix has now released the second trailer for their supernatural series “The Innocents” starring Prometheus actor Guy Pearce.
The eight-episode British series created and written by Hania Elkington (The North London Book of the Dead) and Simon Duric (The Crown, Black Mirror) also stars Percelle Ascott (Wizards vs. Aliens) and Sorcha Groundsell (Clique).
In the series, “June embarks on a journey with her boyfriend, Harry, to run away from their lives and start over. Or so they think. They quickly realize that nothing is what it seems. And in this world, the only way to survive is to change.”
“The series will explore what happens when teenagers Harry (Ascott) and June (Groundsell) run away from their repressive family lives to be together. They’re quickly thrown into an extraordinary journey of self-discovery that derails their innocent dream: Secrets kept from them by their parents test their love to the breaking point, and the extraordinary gift they possess unleashes powerful forces intent on dividing them forever. Pearce will play a character named Halvorson.”
Produced by New Pictures, “The Innocents” is executive produced by New Pictures’ Charlie Pattinson, Elaine Pyke and Willow Grylls, along with Farren Blackburn (Doctor Who). Blackburn and Jamie Donaghue are directing the series shot in both the U.K. and in Norway.
“The Innocents” premieres on the streaming giant on August 24, 2018.
