The Innocents trailer shows shapeshifting is a gift and a curse

Guy Pearce is hunting shapeshifters in the new trailer for Netflix’s supernatural drama The Innocents

Netflix’s new supernatural show The Innocents arrives on 24 August, and there’s a new trailer which gives us a better look at this world of shapeshifters on the run, and more of Guy Pearce as the scientist who’s chasing them.

“When teenagers Harry and June run away from their repressive families to be together, they’re derailed by an extraordinary discovery – June’s ability to shape-shift. As the star-crossed lovers struggle to control this strange new power, a mysterious professor reveals that June is not alone: there are more shifters out there like her, and he promises to cure June and reunite her with the mother who deserted her three years ago. But as their journey becomes increasingly fraught with danger, Harry and June’s love for each other is tested to breaking point and they’re faced with a choice: keep their innocent dream alive, or embrace that their lives have changed and risk everything.”

The series stars Sorcha Groundsell as June, Percelle Ascott as Harry and Guy Pearce as Halvorson, and is created by Hania Elkington and Simon Duric.

The Innocents will be available on Netflix on 24 August. Keep up with the latest genre news with the new issue of SciFiNow.
