Amazon Prime Video has released a nearly two-minute teaser trailer for The Peripheral, the upcoming sci-fi streaming series based on the 2014 William Gibson book of the same name. The show is created by author and screenwriter Scott Smith (Siberia, The Burnt Orange Heresy), and Westworld creators Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy serve as executive producers.
The show is due to arrive October 21 on Prime Video, and stars Chloë Grace Moretz (Kick-Ass) as Flynne Fisher, a woman trying to hold together the pieces of her broken family in a forgotten corner of tomorrow’s America. According to a synopsis, Flynne “lives in the rural American South, working at the local 3D printing shop, while earning much needed extra money playing VR games for rich people… But this isn’t like any game she’s ever played before: Flynne begins to realize it isn’t virtual reality… it’s real. Someone in London, 70 years in the future, has found a way to open a door to Flynne’s world.”
In addition to Moretz, The Peripheral also stars Jack Reynor (Midsommar), Gary Carr (The Deuce), Eli Goree (One Night in Miami), Louis Herthum (Westworld), JJ Feild (TURN: Washington’s Spies), T’Nia Miller (The Haunting of Bly Manor), Charlotte Riley (Peaky Blinders), Alexandra Billings (The Conners), Adelind Horan (The Deuce), Alex Hernandez (UnReal), Katie Leung (Chimerica), Julian Moore-Cook (Peaky Blinders), Melinda Page Hamilton (Messiah), Chris Coy (The Deuce), and Austin Rising (Alt).
