From the chilling pages of Joe Hill’s third novel, NOS4A2 (pronounced Nosferatu), comes a new television series presented by the AMC network. Since 2015, fans of the novel have been waiting in anticipation for NOS4A2’s television debut, which is planned for its world premiere at this year’s Austin SXSW on March 11th, at the Alamo Drafthouse Lamar location. The show will debut on the AMC Network later in 2019. According to AMC’s official NOS4A2 series page, the synopsis is as follows:
“The supernatural horror series NOS4A2, based on Joe Hill’s bestselling novel of the same name, 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.”
Meanwhile, fans of the novel (as well as new fans alike) can enjoy the first sneak peek teaser brought to you by AMC’s official NOS4A2 series page, which announces a release timeframe for the Summer of 2019.
