Hulu released a teaser and first look photos for their original psychological thriller series The Clearing, starring Teresa Palmer (A Discovery of Witches, Warm Bodies), Miranda Otto (Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King), and Guy Pearce (A Spy Among Friends, Mare of Easttown). The series will premiere with two episodes on Hulu on May 24, followed by new episodes every Wednesday.

The Clearing is based on the best-selling crime thriller In The Clearing by J.P. Pomare, inspired by the darkness of real-life cults in Australia and around the world.

Filmed across Victoria, the 8-episode series follows the nightmares of a cult and a woman who’s forced to face the demons from her past in order to stop the kidnapping and coercion of innocent children in the future.
