AMC is offering viewers another personal look at Ashleigh Cummings‘ Vic McQueen ahead of this summer’s premiere their supernatural fantasy-horror adaptation of Joe Hill‘s bestselling novel NOS4A2. After the previous teaser (see below) left us with some hurtful feels for Vic, we’re glad to see she also has an encouraging voice in her life – a voice in the form of Ebon Moss-Bachrach (The Punisher) as Chris McQueen, her father. Which makes us feel a little better: with Zachary Quinto set as ancient evil Charlie Manx, Vic’s going to need all the help and friendly advice she can get.
Emmy-nominee Kari Skogland (The Handmaid’s Tale) is on board to direct the first two episodes, with AMC expected to premiere the 10-episode series in the summer of 2019 – but you don’t have to wait for another first-look:

Now here’s a look back at both the official teaser for the upcoming fantasy-horror series as well as the previously-released Twitter tease that has Cummings’ Vic McQueen expressing some heart-breaking personal insight:

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.
Along with Quinto and Cummings, NOS4A2 also stars Olafur Darri Olafsson (Lady Dynamite) as Bing Partridge, Virginia Kull (The Looming Tower) as Linda McQueen, Ebon Moss-Bachrach (The Punisher) as Chris McQueen, Jahkara Smith (aka Sailor J) as Maggie Leigh, and Ashley Romans (Shameless) as Det. Tabitha Hutter. Produced by AMC Studios in association with Tornante Television, NOS4A2 is executive produced by Hill, Tornante Television’s Lauren Corrao, and series creator/showrunner Jami O’Brien (Fear The Walking Dead, Hell On Wheels).
