“Mother Nature has had enough,” Frances Conroy’s character ominously declares in the first trailer for Spike’s 10-episode adaptation of The Mist.
Premiering Thursday, June 22 at 10/9c and based on a story by Stephen King, The Mist centers around a small-town family that is torn apart by a brutal crime. As they deal with the fallout, an eerie mist rolls in, suddenly cutting them off from the rest of the world — and in some cases, from each other. Family, friends and adversaries become strange bedfellows, battling the mysterious mist and its threats, fighting to maintain morality and sanity as the rules of society break down.
In addition to American Horror Story vet Conroy, the cast includes Darren Pettie (Madam Secretary), Alyssa Sutherland (Vikings), Dan Butler (Frasier), Morgan Spector (Allegiance), Gus Birney, Danica Curcic, Okezie Morro, Luke Cosgrove, Russell Posner and Isaiah Washington, Jr.
