Love can be strange, it can be wonderful, it can also shapeshift. Later this month Netflix will release the Young Adult supernatural series The Innocents and today we get a look at the series official Trailer.
This British drama is part drama, part horror, part teen romance and this trailer highlights those genres. We meet June (Sorcha Groundsell) and Harry (Percelle Ascott) running from their repressive families. June has the ability to shapeshift and a mysterious professor offers her a chance of a cure. Will they risk everything and stay together?
Norse mythology, meets young love, a unique mix interesting to see how this one will go. Some are calling this the show to watch whilst you wait for Stranger Things Season 3…
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.
