AMC released a slew of new pictures and the synopsis for the first four episodes of NOS4A2. Based on the story by Joe Hill, it tells the story of Charlie Manx, a seductive immortal who feeds off the souls of children, then deposits what remains of them into Christmasland – an icy, twisted Christmas village of Manx’s imagination where every day is Christmas Day and unhappiness is against the law. Manx finds his whole world threatened when a young woman in New England discovers she has a dangerous gift.
Episode 1 “The Shorter Way”: Vic McQueen, a young, blue-collar, New Englander discovers her supernatural abilities, as the immortal Charlie Manx uses his own to lure a child into his mysterious 1938 Rolls Royce Wraith.
Episode 2 “The Graveyard of What Might Be”: Vic meets Maggie, a medium with more questions than answers. Charlie Manx visits Haverhill to seek The Shorter Way and finds Vic’s school Janitor, Bing, is more than eager to help.
Episode 3 “The Gas Mask Man”: Vic strives to live a normal life despite Maggie’s warning. Charlie Manx puts Bing Partridge to work.
Episode 4 “The House of Sleep”: Vic seeks the Wraith and learns she must trust her gift. A body surfaces in Haverhill.
NOS4A2 will premiere on AMC on June 2 and we highly recommend reading the novel.
