Netflix has released the first full trailer for their upcoming supernatural sci-fi teen drama The Innocents starring Sorcha Groundsell, Percelle Ascott & Guy Pearce which will premiere Friday, 24th August 2018.

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.

Created and written by Hania Elkington and Simon Duric, who also executive produce, ‘The Innocents’ stars Sorcha Groundsell (‘Clique’, ‘Iona’, ‘Sleeping Lions’) as June, Percelle Ascott (‘Wizard vs. Aliens’, ‘The Weekend Movie’) as Harry and Guy Pearce (‘L.A. Confidential’, ‘Memento’) as Halvorson.

Farren Blackburn (‘The Fades’, ‘Doctor Who’, ‘The Defenders’) is serving as executive producer, alongside Charlie Pattinson, Elaine Pyke and Willow Grylls. Blackburn directs 6 of the 8 episodes. The series comes from New Pictures, who were also behind the BBC/Netflix co-production ‘Requiem’.

The Innocents’ premieres on Netflix on Friday, 24th August 2018.
