First Trailer: Spike TV’s “The Mist”

A decade after Frank Darabont quite loyally adapted Stephen King’s classic novella “The Mist” and then drastically changed up the ending in a way that divided audiences, Spike TV is bringing it back as an ongoing drama series.

However this ten episode first season, penned and executive produced by Christian Torpe, is a much bigger departure from the novel with the showrunner describing it as a ‘twisted cousin’ to the source material.

In this one it appears the threat isn’t monsters within the mist, but the mist itself which causes hallucinations makes the human characters succumb to their own worst violent and murderous tendencies.

Morgan Spector, Frances Conroy, Alyssa Sutherland, Gus Birney, Dan Butler, Luke Cosgrove, Danica Curcic, Okezie Morro, Darren Pettie, Russell Posner, and Isiah Whitlock, Jr. star in the series which premieres Thursday, June 22nd on Spike.
