The new series that I’ve been most excited to see debut this year is Spikes ‘The Mist,‘ and the first trailer for the show has proven that we have something to look forward to! Apparently, things will start off before the mist spreading over the town and enveloping it in darkness, but it will quickly turn from bad to worse for those who can survive the initial onslaught. Not only that but humanity will be as bad for itself as whatever is feeding upon us.
It is no wonder that Stephen King seems to approve of the show so far.
Clocking in at a minute and a half, you can check out the first trailer right here!
Bridgeville, Maine is going to be having quite a bad run of it once things kick off and we’ve got a couple teases of what is coming for the residents.
