What you see is not what you see, teaches the new trailer for Netflix’s The Innocents – and judging by the two-minute teaser, the British supernatural drama promises to be creepily good.
The series stars Clique’s Sorcha Groundsell as June, whose adventure starting a new life in London becomes a lot more complicated than she could have ever expected. Suddenly she finds herself the subject of a kidnap plot, their intentions unknown. Faced with extreme stress, her body and identity begin to shift in ways she could have never imagined. The question is not just how… but why?
She’s joined by Percelle Ascott (Wizards vs. Aliens) as Harry, another runaway who also finds himself with a powerful gift. As the secrets kept from them by their parents come to the surface. They quickly realize that nothing is what it seems. And in this world, the only way to survive is to change.
Guy Pearce completes the cast as Halvorson, only adding to the unsettling, stylish vibe. The eight-episode series is created and written by Hania Elkington (The North London Book of the Dead) and Simon Duric (The Crown, Black Mirror), with Farren Blackburn (Doctor Who) and Jamie Donaghue on directing duties. It premieres on Netflix on Friday 24th August. Here’s the new trailer:
The supernatural teen drama was first ordered by Netflix last year, as the streaming giant steps up its investment in British TV. Produced by New Pictures, owned by All3Media and previously behind The Missing, the series will shoot in both the UK and Norway. It follows two teenagers who run away from the repressive family lives.
Pearce will star as Halvorson, leading up an ensemble that includes Percelle Ascott (Wizards vs. Aliens) and Sorcha Groundsell (Clique). They will play Harry and June, a runaway duo who are quickly thrown into an extraordinary journey of self-discovery, as the gift they possess unleashes powerful forces, and secrets kept from them by their parents come to the surface. They quickly realise that nothing is what it seems. And in this world, the only way to survive is to change.

Netflix orders British supernatural series
Netflix has commissioned The Innocents, a new supernatural drama, as the streaming giant steps up its investment in British TV.
The eight-episode drama is created by Hania Elkington (The North London Book of the Dead) and Simon Duric (The Crown, Black Mirror). It is exec-produced by Charlie Pattinson, Elaine Pyke and Willow Grylls, alongside Farren Blackburn (Doctor Who), who will also direct. Little is know about the programme, which is yet to have a title, but The Hollywood Reporter describes it as “an emotional love story thriller about two teenage runaways”.
The show is produced by New Pictures, founded by the three EPs above, which is owned by All3Media. The production company was previously behind The Missing and Channel 4’s Indian Summers, and is also producing supernatural drama Requieum for the BBC.
