It’s Thursday, so we have your daily dose of Stephen King news. That’s right. We have yet another adaptation in the works — this time from HBO, and this time for one of his more recent novels, The Outsider, which hit bookshelves in May of last year. HBO has adapted it into a 10-episode series, and man does it look good.

On the whole, the trailer — which you can see below — looks pretty great, but I really wish they’d get rid of that David Fincher dark filter they got going there. Anyway, check out the trailer below!

Below is the official synopsis for The Outsider:

“The 10-episode series follows police detective Ralph Anderson (Ben Mendelsohn), as he sets out to investigate the mutilated body of 11-year-old Frankie Peterson found in the Georgia woods. The mysterious circumstances surrounding this horrifying crime leads Ralph, still grieving the recent death of his own son, to bring in unorthodox private investigator Holly Gibney (Cynthia Erivo), whose uncanny abilities he hopes will help explain the unexplainable.”

What do you think of the trailer for this thing? Does it look like another hit for a Stephen King adaptation, or one of the misses? Let us know in the comments down below!

The Outsider starts airing on HBO on January 12, 2019.
