The wait for Stranger Things season 3 has been extended another year, but we can do more than just twiddle our thumbs while waiting for Netflix’s flagship supernatural series. Because an intriguing new British shape-shifter series coming later this month may just fill all our Stranger needs. But with a dash of teen romance thrown in. And Guy Pearce!
The Innocents is a British supernatural series that follows a teen runaway named June (Sorcha Groundsell) who discovers that she has a genetic ability to shape-shift. Terrified and confused, she and her fellow runaway Harry (Percelle Ascott) try to make sense of this strange new power and fend off the shifty figures — all while figuring out their blossoming feelings for each other. But the first The Innocents trailer suggests that this is less a Twilight knock-off than a thematic cousin to Netflix’s own horror-tinged Stranger Things.
