Watch the minute-long first look below.


'The Deceived' was filmed in Belfast and Cambridge in the U.K.

It tells the story of Ophelia (played by newcomer Emily Reid), a student who "falls in love with her timelessly attractive and charismatic, but married, college lecturer, Dr Michael Callaghan (Emmet J. Scanlan - 'Peaky Blinders', 'The Fall')".

Soon Ophelia becomes "trapped in a world where she can no longer trust her own mind".

Mescal plays Sean, who tries to help Ophelia put the pieces of the puzzle together.

Catherine Walker, Eleanor Methven ('Derry Girls') and Ian McElhinney ('Game of Thrones') also star in the series.

'The Deceived' premieres later this year. There is no exact release date just yet.
