Keeley Hawes in Sci-Fi Thriller Series 'The Midwich Cuckoos' Trailer
"It felt like… I was visited." "I can feel life growing inside me." Sky TV has revealed an official trailer for an intriguing new sci-fi series debuting this summer called The Midwich Cuckoos. This is the kind of sci-fi we'll post about even if it is more TV. The film is an exciting modern-day reimagining of John Wyndham's science fiction classic novel first published in 1957. A small fictional village in England named Midwich is completely subdued by an alien presence for an entire day. Upon waking, it is discovered that numerous women in the town are pregnant. As the children of the phenomenon grow, it becomes clear they are not of this world. Sounds similar to that Icelandic series Katla recently, but with British sensibilities instead. This show stars Keeley Hawes, Max Beesley, Synnove Karlsen, Indica Watson, Alec Nicholls, Kimia Lamour, Natalia Harris, and Lara Rossi. Those kids looks super creepy! I'm scared of this one already.
Here's the first official trailer for Sky TV's series The Midwich Cuckoos, direct from YouTube:
Midwich is a quiet commuter town where nothing much happens. That is, until the twilight hours of a late summer's day, when everyone within a set area of the town falls unconscious. The curious incident seems temporary and those affected regain consciousness, but every woman of child-bearing age inside the zone has suddenly and inexplicably fallen pregnant. As the children of the phenomenon grow, it becomes clear they are not of this world. The Midwich Cuckoos is a TV series with episodes directed by filmmakers Alice Troughton ("Atlantis", "The Flash", "Legends of Tomorrow", "A Discovery of Witches", "Lore", "Baghdad Central") & Börkur Sigþórsson (Vultures, "Trapped") & Jennifer Perrott ("Echo Beach", "Home and Away", "Gentleman Jack"). Written by Sasha Hails, Namsi Khan, Laura Lomas, and David Farr. Adapted from the 1957 sci-fi novel written by John Wyndham. Produced by Sky TV and DayOut Productions. Sky will debut The Midwich Cuckoos streaming on Sky TV starting in the summer of 2022. Who's curious about it?
