The Innocents Aims to Bring Strong YA to Netflix

The Innocents is the story of a teen girl named June, who runs away from home with her boyfriend Harry. The twist; June has superpowers and a hell of a lot of people seem to want her back. Forcefully if need be, and apparently it needs be. Starting with this revelation, the show looks to reveal a bunch more related to June’s abilities and the plans people have for her. As if this wasn’t enough, she also looks like she and Harry will struggle through young love at the same time that she struggles with her powers.

Sometimes those teenage years just freaking suck.

The nature of June’s abilities evaded me throughout this trailer. It seems she shifts into other bodies in one scene, but then in others, it looks like some sort of shapeshifting happens. The older couple from the beginning also say June is “like them,” which means she isn’t alone. It’s not a stretch to say the scientist in the trailer, played by Guy Pearce, will reveal the extent of these abilities in his efforts to do whatever the hell he wants with June.

Needless to say, we tend to gravitate towards good YA content here at The Fandomentals. This trailer for The Innocents certainly piqued my interest, and had probably the most literal use of Pixies “Where is My Mind?” I’ve ever seen. We’re rooting for it.

The Innocents will comprise of 8 episodes. They will all release on Netflix on August 24.
