Netflix has another compelling supernatural drama for us, and we're ready for it.
The streamer released the first trailer for its upcoming series "The Innocents" Wednesday, and the show looks poised to add some mystery to our summer. The preview starts out with teenagers June (Sorcha Groundsell) and Harry (Percelle Ascott) running away from their families to be together, but then the story gets decidedly darker. We find out that there is more to June than meets the eye, and that sets up the star-crossed lovers to face danger and hard choices.
The series comes from creators Hania Elkington and Simon Duric, who also serve as writers and executive producers. They're joined by fellow executive producers Elaine Pyke, Charlie Pattinson, and Willow Grylls of New Pictures, as well as Farren Blackburn.
"The Innocents" will debut with eight episodes on Netflix, six of which were directed by Blackburn. The series starts streaming Aug. 24.
