Young love can be … complicated. And that’s before you add in supernatural abilities.
In The Innocents, Netflix’s upcoming YA series, teens Harry (Percelle Ascott) and June (Sorcha Groundsell) decide to run away from their families to be together. But things take a turn when secrets that were kept from them by their parents test their love. And then there’s the small matter of June having some sort of extraordinary gift that will thrust them into an entirely new, very dangerous world.
EW has a new trailer for the upcoming series that gives viewers a glimpse at June’s gift, which appears to be some sort of shapeshifting ability. It’s hard to say precisely what she’s capable of, but it’s evident that there are people in the world who are very interested in her (and one of them is played by Guy Pearce).
The supernatural drama, which is created and written by Hania Elkington (The North London Book of the Dead) and Simon Duric (The Crown, Black Mirror), hits Netflix on August 24. The first season will consist of eight episodes.
