In last week's episode of Eric Wald and Dean White's mermaid fantasy-action drama Siren, Bristol Cove gathered together to bury one of their own. Xander (Ian Verdun) is forced to deal not only with the loss of his father Sean (Brian Anthony Wilson) – at the hands of a merman, no less – but also with his long-simmering feelings for Maddie (Fola Evans-Akingbola). But in this sneak preview of 'Street Fight' from Freeform, it looks like Xander's got only one thing on his mind: blood.
Check out a sneak preview of this week's ninth – and penultimate – episode of Siren's first season, 'Street Fight':
Siren s01e09 'Street Fight': Donna comes ashore with two other members of her colony to bring Ryn back home. When mermaids once again begin wreaking havoc throughout the town, Dale tries to put an end to it once and for all.
Siren takes us inside Bristol Cove—a coastal town known for its legend of once being home to mermaids. When the arrival of a mysterious girl proves this folklore all too true, the battle between man and sea takes a very vicious turn as these predatory beings return to reclaim their right to the ocean.
The series stars Alex Roe ("The 5th Wave") as Ben, a bright marine biologist who finds himself drawn to a mysterious new girl in town, Ryn, played by Eline Powell ("Game of Thrones"), who is a strange young woman with a deep dark secret. Fola Evans-Akingbola ("An American Exorcism") stars as Maddie, also a marine biologist who works with Ben, and is highly suspicious of Ryn. Ian Verdun ("Life's a Drag") stars as Xander, a deep sea fisherman on a quest to uncover the truth; and Rena Owen ("Star Wars" Episodes II and III) as Helen, the town eccentric who seems to know more about the mermaids than she lets on.
"Siren" is based on a story by Eric Wald and Dean White who both serve as executive producers. Emily Whitesell ("Finding Carter") serves as showrunner and executive producer. Brad Luff, Nate Hopper and RD Robb also serve as executive producers.
