The New York Comic Con 2019 panel for ‘Devs’ previewed a trailer for FX’s upcoming series as well as revealed a slew of new details for the show. One of the main new things is that this series will only have an 8-episode limited-run which will launch in the Spring of 2020. Showrunner Alex Garland is joined by executive producer Allon Reich and stars Sonoya Mizuno, Jin Ha, Cailee Spaeny, Karl Glusman, and Alison Pill.
Check out the “Ring Teaser” for ‘Devs’ right here:
Devs follows the story of a young software engineer, Lily Chan, who investigates the secretive development division of her employer which she believes is behind her boyfriend’s murder.
The clip features Sonoya Mizuno as Lily and Nick Offerman as Forest and gives us an introduction to their characters in ‘Devs.’
We’ve also been given the official synopsis that shares more details about the series:
‘Devs’ is a limited series that focuses on a young software engineer named Lily Chan (Sonoya Mizuno) who works for Amaya, a cutting-edge tech company based in Silicon Valley. After her boyfriend’s apparent suicide, Lily suspects foul play and begins to investigate. She quickly realizes that all roads lead to Forest (Nick Offerman), Amaya’s enigmatic CEO, and Devs, the company’s secret development division. In Lily’s quest to discover the truth, she uncovers a technology-based conspiracy that could change the world.
For working on television instead of a film at the panel, Garland shared:
“On a personal level, I thought, ‘maybe television is a better home for me.’ And on a writing level, I wanted the eight hours. I feel like everything I have learned up to this point I have put into the show. I couldn’t love it more.”
FX also released three new images in conjunction with the trailer release which you can see below:
