Check out a new teaser and a cast photo from Freeform’s upcoming mermaid series Siren
Today, Freeform released a new teaser trailer for their upcoming mermaid series Siren. The one-hour drama has received a 10-episode order from the network. The trailer, released back in April, introduced us to a small town that has local legends of mermaids. The new teaser gives us a much closer look at the mermaid form in Siren, and she’s not the ones we know from fairytales. In addition, the network released a new cast photo, which you can check out in our gallery. You can watch the Siren teaser in the player below. The series will premiere on March 29.
In the epic tale, the coastal town of Bristol Cove, known for its legend of once being home to mermaids, is turned upside down when a mysterious girl (Eline Powell) appears and begins wreaking havoc upon the small fishing town. Using their resources, marine biologists Ben (Alex Roe) and Maddie (Fola Evans-Akingbola) must work together to find out who and what drove this primal hunter of the deep sea to land, and are there more like her out there?
Siren is based on a story by Eric Wald and Dean White who both serve as executive producers. Emily Whitesell (Finding Carter) serves as showrunner and executive producer. Brad Luff, Nate Hopper and RD Robb also serve as executive producers.
Siren will premiere on International Mermaid Day, Thursday, March 29 (8:00 – 10:00 p.m. EDT/PDT).
