NOS4A2: New photos and synopses for first four episodes released
AMC has released new promo photos and synopses for the first four episodes of their upcoming series NOS4A2, giving us an idea on what to expect for the new supernatural series. Starring Zachary Quinto as the main antagonist Charlie Manx and Ashleigh Cummings as Vic McQueen, you can check out the full photos in the gallery below.
The official synopses of the four episodes are described as follows:
Episode 1 titled “The Shorter Way”: Vic McQueen, a young, blue-collar, New Englander discovers her supernatural abilities, as the immortal Charlie Manx uses his own to lure a child into his mysterious 1938 Rolls Royce Wraith.
Episode 2 titled “The Graveyard of What Might Be”: Vic meets Maggie, a medium with more questions than answers. Charlie Manx visits Haverhill to seek The Shorter Way and finds Vic’s school Janitor, Bing, is more than eager to help.
Episode 3 titled “The Gas Mask Man”: Vic strives to live a normal life despite Maggie’s warning. Charlie Manx puts Bing Partridge to work.
Episode 4 titled “The House of Sleep”: Vic seeks the Wraith and learns she must trust her gift. A body surfaces in Haverhill.
NOS4A2, based on Joe Hill’s bestselling novel of the same name, tells the story of Charlie Manx, a seductive immortal who feeds off the souls of children, then deposits what remains of them into Christmasland – an icy, twisted Christmas village of Manx’s imagination where every day is Christmas Day and unhappiness is against the law. Manx finds his whole world threatened when a young woman in New England discovers she has a dangerous gift.
The Goldfinch‘s Ashleigh Cummings will play Vic McQueen, a young, working-class artist whose creativity awakens a supernatural ability to track Manx (Quinto). What Vic lacks in social confidence, she makes up for in courage, humor, and tough-as-nails grit. She strives to defeat Manx and rescue his victims without losing her mind or falling victim to him herself.
NOS4A2 is produced by AMC Studios in association with Tornante Television. The series is executive produced by Joe Hill, Jami O’Brien (Fear The Walking Dead, Hell On Wheels), who created the show for television and will serve as showrunner, and Lauren Corrao, Co-President of Tornante Television. The cast also includes the previously announced Olafur Darri Olafsson (Lady Dynamite) as Bing Partridge, Virginia Kull (The Looming Tower) as Linda McQueen, Ebon Moss-Bachrach (The Punisher) as Chris McQueen and Jahkara Smith (aka Sailor J) as Maggie Leigh.
The first season is slated to premiere Sunday, June 2 at 9pm/8c.
