Apple TV+ is sharing the trailer for their new limited series, The Essex Serpent, featuring Tom Hiddleston and Claire Danes. The Essex Serpent is based on the Sarah Perry novel of the same name, which takes place in Victorian-era England. The story follows Cora Seaborne (Danes), a widow who moves from London to a small village in Essex.
In the trailer, Cora grow close to the village reverend, William Ransome (Hiddleston), amid strange events that the town attributes to the Essex Serpent, a mythological beast. An official description reads: “[Cora] forms a surprising bond of science and skepticism with the local pastor, but when tragedy strikes, locals accuse her of attracting the creature.”
The Essex Serpent will have a two-episode premiere May 13 on Apple TV+. Take a look at the trailer – here.
