HBO has released the first teaser trailer for its new horror series, Lovecraft Country, executive produced by Jordan Peele and J.J. Abrams.

The show follows Atticus Freeman (played by Jonathan Majors) as he ventures across America with his friend Letitia (Jurnee Smollett-Bell) and his Uncle George (Courtney B. Vance) in search of his missing father (Michael Kenneth Williams). As they travel throughout the states during the 1950s Jim Crow era, they come face to face with the racism of white America, while simultaneously encountering the horrific monsters of Lovecraft country.

Lovecraft Country, which has been in the works since 2017, is based on Matt Ruff's 2016 novel of the same name. The horror fiction series is created by Misha Green, who also serves as showrunner and executive producer alongside Peele, Abrams, Bill Carraro, Yann Demange, Daniel Sackheim, and David Knoller.

HBO has confirmed an August release for the show, albeit a specific date has yet to be announced. Nonetheless, you can watch the teaser trailer below.
