It’s unclear when the eight episodes will hit the air, but the first look from the series already looks promising. Teresa Palmer (Hacksaw Ridge) and Matthew Goode (The Imitation Game) star in this magical love story. Set in Oxford, the series will follow these two academic as they travel throughout time and live amongst demons, witches, and vampires.

Palmer plays Diana Bishop, a witch desperately trying to ignore her ancestry before she discovers a powerful manuscript. This pulls Goode’s Matthew Clairmont, a vampire and geneticist, into her orbit. The two get sucked into a captivating mystery while also dealing with the judgment they must face for their interspecies relationship.

Throughout their journey, they’ll be joined by a few familiar faces including Diana’s aunt Sarah Bishop (Alex Kingston) and her partner Emily Mather (Valarie Pettiford). The Congregation, a group in charge of monitoring the supernatural, has cast the member Peter Knox with Owen Teale.
