WonderCon: AMC’s NOS4A2 Premieres Official Trailer and First Episode
NOS4A2: A Fight For Their Souls:
AMC's Saturday NOS4A2 panel was definitely a Wonder Con highlight. The networked kicked things off right by dropping the full trailer that stopped a few fans in their tracks. Then to keep that goodness coming, AMC debuted the first full episode of NOS4A2 at during Saturday’s WonderCon panel, which featured showrunner and executive producer Jami O’Brien, author and executive producer Joe Hill along with series stars Ashleigh Cummings, Zachary Quinto, Olafur Darri Olafsson, Ebon Moss-Bachrach and Jahkara Smith.
Based on Joe Hill's 2013 novel, NOS4A2 introduces audiences to Vic McQueen (Ashleigh Cummings), a gifted young woman struggling to find her place - senior year high school is no picnic when you're working class - who discovers she can find lost things. This supernatural ability ultimately pits Vic against Charlie Manx (Zachary Quinto). Charlie Manx feeds off the souls of children. His perspective on life is selfishly skewed. Manx deposits what remains of his child victims in Christmasland – a twisted place pulled from an immoral Manx’s imagination. In Christmasland, every day is Christmas Day and unhappiness is against the law. puts her on a collision course with the evil and immortal Charlie Manx. Once Vic discovers what Manx has been up to for hundreds of years, she resolves to defeat him and rescue his victims – hopefully without losing her mind or becoming his victim. Other key players to the twists and turns of this horror story come to life are Bing Partridge (Ólafur Darri Ólafsson) Linda McQueen (Virginia Kull), Chris McQueen (Ebon Moss-Bachrach), and making her acting debut as Maggie Leigh, Jahkara Smith (better known in internet circles as Sailor J).
After watching the first episode I can say, that I'll definitely be tuning into and talking about this show. The elements carried over from the book set the perfect tone for a dark and twisted story that will unfold perfectly episode by episode. Prepare yourself for some more quality horror from AMC.
This highly anticipated (trust me, you're going to want to see it) horror series joins AMC's Sunday lineup, this summer, on June 2, 2019, at 9:00 pm ET.
NOS4A2 is produced by AMC Studios in association with Tornante Television. Jami O’Brien (Fear the Walking Dead, Hell on Wheels) created the show for television and will serve as showrunner and executive producer along with executive producers Hill and Lauren Corrao, Co-President of Tornante Television.
