Created and written by Hania Elkington and Simon Duric, upcoming Netflix original series The Innocents tells the story of teenagers Harry and June, who flee their repressive families in a bid to carve out a life together. This week, a brilliant first look trailer for the show has been revealed, which you can check out ahead of the series' debut below:
Though Harry and June look set to enjoy their new life with one another, the discovery that June can shape-shift is something that sees the two struggle to control. When they come across a mysterious professor who tells her she's not the only shifter out there, things only get stranger.
With a promise to cure her and reunite her with the mother that abandoned her three years prior, the professor is just one of many elements that test Harry and June's love for each other. When pushed to breaking point, they'll be faced with a choice: to keep their innocent dream alive, or embrace the fact that their lives have changed and risk it all.
Elkington and Duric also serve as executive producers on the series, which stars Sorcha Groundsell as June, Percelle Ascott as Harry, and Guy Pearce as Halvorson.
Elaine Pyke, Charlie Pattinson and Willow Grylls are also executive producers on the show, along with Farren Blackburn, who directed six of the eight episodes.
The Innocents will come to Netflix on August 24, 2018.
