Natalie Dormer's new show, Penny Dreadful: City of Angels has finally been given a UK release date - and we can't wait to get stuck into the gripping series.
The new drama will arrive in the UK in July, meaning we only have weeks to wait.
Starring Natalie Dormer as Magda, the spin off of the original psychological thriller, Penny Dreadful (which aired in 2014) is set nearly 50 years later and begins in Los Angeles.
It's 1938, the Golden Age of Hollywood, and there's a great deal of social and political tension - made worse by a grisly murder in which a family are found dead, with their faces painted in Day of the Dead-style make up.
Following the brutal killing, Detective Tiago Vega (Daniel Zovatto) and his partner Lewis Michener (Nathan Lane). are caught up in an epic story which reflects the history of LA, including building of the city's first freeways and its deep traditions of Mexican-American folklore.
Speaking of which, the characters quickly become embroiled in a conflict between the Mexican folklore deity - Santa Muerte (played by Lorenza Izzo) who is the caretaker of the dead and a spiritual guide, and her sister, Magda - a demoness who believes all mankind is evil.
Alongside Natalie Dormer as Magda, the series stars Kerry Bishé as Sister Molly, Rory Kinnear as Peter Craft, Adriana Barraza as Maria Vega, Michael Gladis as Charlton Townsend, Jessica Garza as Josefina Vega and Johnathan Nieves as Mateo Vega.
And a trailer for the series looks epic, kicking off with Detective Tiago Vega and partner Lewis Michener arriving at the scene of the horrifying murder. And things get pretty graphic when the bodies are revealed, covered in the Day of The Dead make up. So creepy.
Meanwhile, viewers get a glimpse of Natalie Dormer's fierce character Magda, who at the end of the trailer can be heard saying: "Open your arms Sister, I'll give you many souls today..."
Anyone else freaked out?! Get ready to binge watch all 10 episodes from 1st July on Sky Atlantic...
