Published May 01, 2020Instead of postponing everything until god knows when, HBO has been steadily delivering new content on the regular. And up next is the horror series Lovecraft Country, which comes via Jordan Peele and J.J. Abrams. Today, we have the first trailer to see what's in store.
Lovecraft Country is set to arrive in August and is an adaptation of Matt Ruff's 2016 novel of the same name.
Here's how HBO explains the upcoming series:
The series follows Atticus Freeman (Jonathan Majors) as he joins up with his friend Letitia (Jurnee Smollett-Bell) and his Uncle George (Courtney B. Vance) to embark on a road trip across 1950s Jim Crow America in search of his missing father (Michael Kenneth Williams). This begins a struggle to survive and overcome both the racist terrors of white America and the terrifying monsters that could be ripped from a Lovecraft paperback.
To see that in action, watch the trailer for Lovecraft Country below.
