‘NOS4A2’: Teaser Released for AMC’s Supernatural Fantasy-Horror Adapt

More than two months after AMC gave fans their first look at Zachary Quinto as ancient evil Charlie Manx in their supernatural fantasy-horror adaptation NOS4A2 and after the cable network released new first-look images from the series, we’re getting our first official trailer for the adaptation series. Co-starring Ashleigh Cummings and based on author Joe Hill‘s bestselling novel of the same name, the series boasts Emmy-nominated Kari Skogland (The Handmaid’s Tale) as director of the first two episodes. AMC is expected to premiere the 10-episode series in the summer of 2019, but you can get a sense of what to expect below:

The supernatural horror series NOS4A2, based on Hill’s bestselling novel of the same name, tells the story of Charlie Manx, a seductive immortal who feeds off the souls of children then deposits what remains of them into Christmasland – an icy, twisted Christmas village of Manx’s imagination where every day is Christmas Day and unhappiness is against the law. Manx finds his whole world threatened when a young woman in New England discovers she has a dangerous gift.

Quinto’s Charlie Manx is a seductive immortal who feeds off the souls of children, then deposits what remains of them into Christmasland – an icy, twisted Christmas village of Manx’s imagination where every day is Christmas Day and unhappiness is against the law. Manx finds his whole world threatened when a young woman in New England (Cummings) discovers she has a dangerous gift.

Cummings’ Vic McQueen is a young, working-class artist whose creativity awakens a supernatural ability to track Manx (Quinto). What Vic lacks in social confidence, she makes up for in courage, humor, and tough-as-nails grit. She strives to defeat Manx and rescue his victims without losing her mind or falling victim to him herself.
